‘Super Mario Odyssey’ may look bizarre, but it feels just right

There’s perhaps no better example of Nintendo’s creativity in game design than the Super Mario Bros. franchise. At a glance, the company’s mascot seems like an unchanging, static figure. In reality, every game he stars in tweaks the Mario formula ever so slightly — adding new power-ups in Super Mario Bros. 3, rethinking level design in Super Mario World or introducing exploration in Super Mario 64. If the E3 demo of the newest game in the franchise is any indication, our favorite plumber’s latest adventure is no different: Super Mario Odyssey is a creative, joyously fun remix on a formula the company has been tweaking for decades.
