Today Nintendo release new footage for the highly anticipated Switch game, Super Mario Odyssey — given us a glimpse at the game’s co-op playability. The video illustrates the feature’s functionality and how you and your friend can join in on all the fun that awaits both of you.
In co-op mode, the 1st player is in control of Mario while the second player is in control of Cappy, the sentient hat on Mario’s head. Cappy is able to move about on its own if you’re the second player, yet you can still throw Cappy as Mario when necessary in the game. Furthermore, we’re shown highlights of new landscapes within the game while in co-op mode—we also get a sweet look at the game’s ‘Capture’ function. Check out the new video below:
Super Mario Odyssey launches this Friday (October 27th) for the Nintendo Switch.
