– I’m gonna use your dog
against you, girl. What? – This is definitely not
the Super Mario I know. – ♪ (8-bit intro) ♪ – Super Mario Odyssey. – Is this the new
Super Mario one? Oh my gosh! – I’ve heard of it,
but I’ve never played this one. I’ve played some older
versions of Mario. – I’ve been wanting to
play it forever. I love Mario and this looks
so different and random. – (FBE) This is Super Mario Odyssey,
the most recent Mario platforming game.
This game comes out 36 years after Mario’s
first video game appearance. – 36 years?
Wow, I’m [bleep] old. – This time he is paired up
with his sidekick hat, Cappy. – He has a name now?
I just thought it was a hat. – We are ready on this
odyssey and this journey. – “In the skies above
Peach’s castle.” – I’m about to fight him?
I’m so small! – I like how in each game,
his ship just gets more massive. – Are we still trying to save Peach?
This girl gets in the most trouble. Always trying to save her. – RIP Mario. – Princess Peach, no! – This is so dramatic.
Oh no! – How’s this hat gonna
help me now? – Oh no, dude.
Oh, the hat gods came through. – That looks like a ghost
with a hat. – This is the super hat world. – So his eyes look a lot
like the ones that was on the cover. – “Sorry for running away like that.
You startled me.” – “And to make matters worse,
the fiend has kidnapped my little sister.” Is that Bowser’s hat?
Well, he wasn’t little. Oh, a Peach version.
Oh, her crown! – “Unfortunately, all of our
airships were wrecked in the attack.”
You’re a [bleep] ghost. Just fly up there. – “Although now that I think on it,
I’m fairly certain there’s a functioning ship in
the next kingdom over. I could get us there,
if only I could reach the top of Top-Hat Tower.” – “It seems we’re after
the same thing. Perhaps we should team up.” – It’s a good look for him. – Oh, wow.
Ooh, okay. That’s hype.
That’s cool. – Cappy is now your companion!
Okay. “Try throwing me with Y.”
Oh. – Oh my God! – It’s kind of like web swinging
in any Spiderman game where it’s just a fun
game mechanic to do. – Oh.
Little flick the wrist action. – Ooh, those–
ah, how do you get those? Ooh, look at me
figure stuff out! – I love the background music, too.
It’s so cartoony, enchanting and kind of ominous
at the same time. – Top-Hat Tower.
Oh, I’m in there. – Ah, what? – “That ledge is awfully high,
Hm, I know. Try throwing me
at a frog.” – Wow, I’m getting such strong
Pokemon vibes. – Oh, does the hat
give you the powers– oh, that’s crazy! – Am I becoming the frog? – From the perspective of Mario,
Cappy didn’t tell him this would happen.
He was just throwing a hat and he fell into another dimension. – Ribbit.
I’m a frog? I’m a frog.
(laughs) – It gained a mustache. – “You captured a frog.”
No, I am inhabiting a frog. – “L Y to dash.
B to jump.” Oh my lord. – This is such a better version
of the powerups. – I really like controlling
a frog. It adds a whole new dimension
to the game. How do I get out of frog?
Oh. It’s all discombobulated. – Okay, going in here. – Oh, look it.
We’re here now. – “His long eared henchmen
are still on the Top-Hat Tower.” Okay, I’ll get ’em fam. – I feel so fulfilled that
I’m getting all these coins at once. – Boss fight.
Let’s do this, bros. – Oh, shit.
Is everything hat themed? – Oh, he’s a big boy.
Get away, get away, get away. – Ah, I’m not sure.
Ah, he’s gonna kill me! Ahh, okay.
Oh, I need to kill his hats. – Jump on him.
What are you doing? – Okay, stop, stop.
Ah, okay. – Oh no. – I’m trying to jump on him.
Did I do it? – Ooh, hand him the L.
Oh, that’s a KO right there. – What the [bleep]?
So that’s how you move to the new world. – I like that.
That was a good intro to the game. – “Cascade Kingdom.
Fossil Falls.” – This is so much better
than a zipline. Maybe not for him. – “Our first power moon.”
Oh, I hate those things. – “There should be an old
airship somewhere around here. Let’s see if we can find it.” – For some reason, I feel
like I’m in a Jurassic Park world. – Oh, that doesn’t look good.
I have to fight that, huh. – Ahh! – Oh, I went the wrong way.
Got it. – I’ve spent 20 years
of my life watching that happen, and now I get to do it. – Gotta fling this guy into that.
Now I have a super moon! – Aw, you got a moon! – Okay, we got a moon
and what’s new. Cool, convenient,
convenient bridge right there. – That was pretty dope.
“Multi moon atop the falls.” – Okay, I got this. – “What a lucky break.
This will come in handy to power our airship.
Have you ever seen anything like it?” – We made it.
The hardest part of the game. – Yes, wait,
I need you. Just in case I die
fighting those guys over there. – Oh, not again. – Maybe the next one. Oh no. – Maybe I can just
sneak around them. Is that an option?
Is that a dinosaur? – Whoa, I was way too busy
focusing on the birds. Oh, there’s a dinosaur! – Wake up.
– (T-rex roars) – Oh my God. – Oh my God.
Okay, L Y to dash. B to attack. – Why am I a dinosaur?
It’s so cool! – This is definitely not
the Super Mario I know. This is some weird shit.
Wait, does he have a [bleep] mustache? – Oh, sorry.
(gasps) I’m gonna fall! – Okay, hmm.
Stomp. Wow, okay, so he
just destroyed everything, cool. Oh, is that an old school
minigame in there? That’s cool. – Wow, and it’s got
the [bleep] jump noise! Nintendo throwing it back
to the OG shit. – Ah, see?
You just get near it and it kills you. – (gasps) What?
This is cool. Whoo!
We got a moon! We got a moon. – Oh, wow, okay.
That’s sick. That’s so sick.
I’ma go comp this game. I don’t even play video games.
This is tight. – That’s so cool. – Oh look, it’s the chick. – Okay, looks like
it’s time to fight again. – Oh, Jesus, hideousness. – “It sounds to me like someone
wants to be a snack for my adorable Chain Chompkins.”
Why thank you. I know I’m a snack, but
you don’t need to say it out loud. – Oh, oh [bleep].
This is gonna be hard. – All right.
Ooh, oh no. – Ah!
Ah, bless. – Hoo, and I’m guessing
I have to do that three times ’cause three is the magic number? – Ay, I feel like a matador. – I’m gonna use your dog
against you, girl. What? – Stop it.
In yo face. – There we go. – Try me, lady.
Try me. Get away from me! – She’s threatening
to spank me. I am not a bad boy!
I’m a good boy! Just kidding.
I’m a bad boy. – Let’s go.
Boom, and I just caught me three moons. – You got a multi moon. – (FBE) And that is all
we’re gonna have you play today. – But I wanna play more. – Oh, really?
We don’t get to actually do the whole airship thing?
Man, all this work for nothing. – It’s so cool!
You can use the things that normally kill you
to help you win. – I’ve never had the experience
of buying a system specifically because
of a game before, but I’m going to for this. – Thanks for watching us play
Super Mario Odyssey on the React Channel. – What game should we play next?
Or maybe more Mario. Let us know in the comments. – Bye guys! – Hey everybody, Derek here,
one of the React Channel producers and thanks to Super Mario Odyssey,
the hardest thing to do in this job now is keeping track
of this Switch. Everybody just keeps taking it.
Stop it! It’s not yours!
