Coming as no surprise, Super Mario Odyssey has sold over 1.1 million units in its first five days in the United States, becoming the fastest selling Super Mario game in U.S. history. Nintendo of America’s president, Reggie Fils-Aime, gave his thoughts on the new game’s success:
“The public continues to respond positively to Mario’s latest adventure. We’re also seeing sales momentum for Nintendo Switch thanks to an ever-growing catalog of games from large publishers and indie developers.”
Thought of by many to be the true sequel to Super Mario 64, Super Mario Odyssey brings with it some wonderful new features, among them, the capture. As mentioned in previous articles, Mario now has the ability to ‘capture’ enemies and objects, thus gaining the ability to control them. This seems to be the most popular, and most fun feature of the game that is sure to become the next classic in a long line of great Super Mario games.
