One of the big surprises that aired during Nintendo's three day live-streaming event for all things Switch and 3DS was that the upcoming open-world, platforming adventure game, Super Mario Odyssey, will support local two-player cooperative play. Mario and Cappy will have camera control, and the latter could collect the items, which would prove handy for far away coins and collectibles.
Cappy is also unbeatable. During co-op mode, a prompt appears onscreen to show players how to control Mario and Cappy independently.
As showcased in the video, the analog stick controls Mario on the left Joy-Con, while the right analog stick on the right Joy-Con controls Cappy. Meanwhile, with Cappy, players can fly around, attack enemies, and perform actions that Mario can't otherwise do. Both players will also have control of the game's camera as well.
Those who can recall playing the star in Super Mario Galaxy, which had nearly similar two players local co-op mode can identify with the latest one.
Cappy is Mario's hat in Super Mario Odyssey that the Italian Plumber can use to control other characters by throwing it on their heads.
Nintendo exhibited several interesting features during the launch of the new version.
The trailer, seen below, shows Mario on a 3-D adventure across multiple worlds as he seeks to rescue Princess Peach from the evil Bowser. Nintendo has made sure that a few previously released amiibo are also compatible with this title.
A US$499 (RM2,136) price for the Xbox One X encourages console fans to value premium performance, a Super Mario Odyssey hat leads fans to question the nature of Mario's existence, and Spider-Man differentiates itself from the superhero action genre's standard, the Batman: Arkham franchise.
