Super Mario Odyssey and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe were officially announced yesterday during the Nintendo Switch Presentation in Tokyo, Japan.
Super Mario Odyssey is an all-new 3D plaformer starring Mario. This time, Mario will be able to throw his cap, which he can then use as a platform to jump across gaps or bounce to higher areas. As seen in the trailer, Mario will visit a variety of locations, including a bustling city where he can interact with cars and human beings. Odyssey's release date is currently scheduled for the 2017 holiday season.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will bring back all the racers and tracks from Mario Kart 8
, including the ones from both DLC packs. Joining the race are Inkling Boy and Inkling Girl from Splatoon
, as well as Bowser Jr., Dry Bones, and King Boo. Other new content includes added items (Feather and Boo) and a revamped battle mode with Balloon Battle and Bob-omb Blast. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will launch on April 28.
Both games were briefly shown, but not named, in the First Look at Nintendo Switch
trailer released back in October.
