There's a new Super Mario game coming to the Nintendo Switch, but it's not going to be near launch like some expected. Instead, Nintendo announced Super Mario Odyssey, which is planned for a release on Nintendo Switch in Holiday 2017.
Odyssey is a sandbox-style Mario game, much like Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine. The title has Mario traveling to different worlds, including ones that look like our own, via an all-new airship.
Mario also has a sentient hat that he can throw this time around. Weird, yes? Super Mario Odyssey is being developed by Tokyo EAD.
