See the first trailer for Super Mario Odyssey

At Thursday’s Nintendo Switch livestream event, the upcoming 3D Mario title teased in the initial reveal trailer was finally unveiled as Super Mario Odyssey. It’s described as the first sandbox-style game since Super Mario 64.

The trailer shows Mario hopping out of a sewer pipe and exploring a very real-looking city, using his hat to solve puzzles, platforming in alleyways, and bouncing off light posts. Bowser and Peach showed up as well, with slightly different appearances than usual. 

Check out the trailer for yourself below. 

The final tease shows a pair of eyes on Mario’s hat, a character that will play an important role in the game’s story. 

Super Mario Odyssey will launch this holiday season.
