When was the final time you went on a pleasant lengthy journey? Thanks to at least one factor and one other this 12 months, it is most likely been fairly some time, though it is exhausting to imagine that three years have now handed since we first grabbed our caps and went on a kingdom-hopping jaunt in Tremendous Mario Odyssey.
It’s, nevertheless, solely true: Nintendo UK even tweeted about it to remind us:
If that hypnotically looping gif above that includes the principal characters boogie-ing seems acquainted, that is as a result of it is tailored from a video put out to have fun the sport’s first anniversary in 2018.
Trying again on the sport, it is maybe just a little odd that it by no means bought any meaty DLC. Sure, it was periodically up to date with free costumes, some new snapshot filters, and it bought that nugget of Labo VR content material (to not point out Luigi’s Balloon World), however of all of the video games that do receives a commission DLC, a brand new locale or two to discover is one thing we’d undoubtedly have coughed up for. So many reminiscences!
Maybe there’s one thing in that, although. Might Nintendo be channelling all these concepts right into a straight sequel, a-la Tremendous Mario Galaxy 2? In spite of everything, everybody might do with getting away from all of it once more — now greater than ever, no?
We will however dream (and cross our fingers, legs and different limbs till we glance fairly foolish). Whereas we await Mario’s subsequent journey — one which we did not already take pleasure in on Wii U, that’s — let’s elevate a glass to his final actually epic journey.
Apologies for mentioning Galaxy 2 — we all know it nonetheless smarts. Be happy to share your individual reminiscences from three years of Tremendous Mario Odyssey — and your hopes for the longer term — beneath.
