When Super Mario Odyssey for the Nintendo Switch launched in NYC, we headed over to the Nintendo NY Store at Rockefeller Plaza, which had been turned into a Super Mario Odyssey fun zone.

Note: I was invited as media to this event. However, any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.

There was all sorts of carnival types of activities including hat toss and decorating. Posing for photos with Mario, his hat Cappy and characters from the game.

Driving a MarioCart. A mini one anyway. And at the end we received our very own cappy!

Of course we had to get a first gaming experience with the Super Mario Odyssey game. My son really enjoyed the game and I was impressed with the game feature of how Mario uses the new hat-based abilities.

Super Mario Odyssey is now available exclusively for Nintendo Switch for SRP:$59.99.

Three game-themed amiibo of Mario, Bowser and Peach in wedding-themed outfits are also available as a set for SRP:$34.99, or individually for SRP:$12.99 each.

A bundle that comes with the Nintendo Switch system, a download code for the game, Mario-themed red Joy-Con controllers and a special carrying case is also available for SRP:$379.99.
