Super Mario Odyssey Has Hat-Based Co-op

Gameplay aside, though, the fact that Nintendo's putting the keys to Mario's castle in the hands of a third-party - even hands as capable as Ubisoft's - before it even gets to stake its own claim on the franchise with Super Mario Odyssey speaks volumes about the platform holder's current mind-set, both with Switch and its wider business. By throwing his magical hat companion - called Cappy - Mario cannot only smack enemies at a distance and cross long gaps, but he can also "capture" bad guys and objects to take control of them and use their special abilities.

Showing a demo of the mode during the stream, game director Kenta Motokura said that the Switch's two detachable controllers inspired him to add co-op controls. They collect some coins and some moons.

A demonstration of the co-op mode for Super Mario Odyssey was done at the E3 2017 today. A prompt shows up on the screen during this game that alerts players who can then control both Mario and Cappy.

Cappy is also unbeatable.

Mario also has to control his camera.

It can be played simply with the two Joy-Con the Switch comes with, but that does mean you have to compromise on the camera controls.

Ronaldo seeks Real Madrid exit after tax accusations in Spain
Even as he enters the final phase of his career, there are only a select few teams Ronaldo could depart for. A move away from Real Madrid could, thus, be on the cards for the veteran forward.

What Can Cappy Do In Co-op Mode?

"I$3 t felt completely different and new to come up with ideas that would work [in Super Mario Odyssey]". It reminds me a little of games where one player has all the fun and the second player does all the shit jobs.

Unlike previous exploration-based 3D Mario games - the last of which was 2010's Super Mario Galaxy 2 - you're not kicked back out to a hub world once you've solved a puzzle or completed an objective.

Those who can recall playing the star in Super Mario Galaxy, which had nearly similar two players local co-op mode can identify with the latest one.

In co-op mode, player two will take control of Mario hat in Super Mario Odyssey.

There's been a lot of talk about Super Mario Odyssey ever since it was showcased in a big way at E3 2017.
