At the Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017 event, Nintendo gave us details on the Switch console, launching March 3rd, 2017 for $299.99. Aside from hardware details, Nintendo spent some time discussing the software that would be made available for the new Switch console, and what would a Nintendo console be without a Mario game?

Super Mario Odyssey is a new open world Mario game launching in Holiday 2017. We only saw a brief trailer for it, which didn't give us too many hints as to the story, timeline, or world. What we do know is it is open world, in the same vein as Super Mario 64, and that Mario can now bounce around on top of Taxi's in the busy streets of some city we haven't discovered yet. The trailer looks very, very promising; coming from a Mario fan who has gotten a bit burned out on the franchise as of late.

What do you guys think? Excited for Super Mario Odyssey? Let us know in the comments below!
