It's almost impossible to list the many delightful aspects of Super Mario Odyssey. The new Nintendo game is filled with fun twists and turns and a number of warm and fuzzy nostalgia-soaked moments. To write about every highlight would make for a long list, and hey, you probably want to discover them yourself. My favorite part of the game as I observed a playthrough is easily Mario's many costumes. You can acquire them as you move through the kingdoms, and more than a few of them are nods to Mario's long history. Easter eggs or not, I'm mighty envious of Mario's vast wardrobe.
And it should go without saying, but if you don't want to view the costumes for fear of spoilers, you should stop reading now because I'm going to show off several of our favorite ensembles.
Yeah, Mario can run around in his boxers. And yeah, maybe it's mean to make him do that in a frigid environment...maybe.
Anytime Mario dances is my favorite part of the game, even if he's wearing a football uniform while doing it.
Can I please don an aviator's outfit and ride around on creatures and have adventures? This really image captures the utter joy and silliness of the game.
Can you even deal with more weird and great outfits? If you said yes, it's your lucky day. Keep on scrolling to the gallery below to see more of Mario's fabulous threads.
