Nintendo Fills in More Details About Super Mario Odyssey at E3 2017

Mario takes over your mind this October.

We're at E3 2017 covering the year's biggest gaming event. Be sure to check out all our coverage on our E3 2017 hub!

Nintendo promised a Super Mario Odyssey info-dump at this year's E3, and dump it did. With the help of a snazzy song, no less.

Mario's hat is a big deal in Odyssey. He uses it to attack enemies, boost-jump, and collect coins – but most intriguingly, Mario uses his hat to possess other creatures and enemies. The trailer shows him possessing a frog, Goombas, Bullet Bills, a businessman in New Donk City, and even a T-Rex. The Mario movie's legacy lives!

You can tip your cap at Super Mario Odyssey on October 27.
