Super Mario Odyssey Will Miss Switch Launch, Coming Holiday 2017

The new Super Mario title is coming later in 2017.

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.

M.H. Williams is new to the journalism game, but he's been a gamer since the NES first graced American shores. Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
