Treehouse Live jump into Super Mario Odyssey’s co-op mode and more


27/06/2017

Super Mario Odyssey arrives on Nintendo Switch on October 27th, and offers a sublime single-player experience in a 3D world full of exotic Kingdoms to explore.

Did you know that you can team up with a pal, too? Well, you can! Super Mario Odyssey game director Kenta Motokura took to the Treehouse Live at E3 stage to showcase just how the local co-op mode works in the game. You can watch the full video below.

In co-op play, one player controls Mario while the other controls Cappy, flying around wherever they desire. What’s more, Cappy is invincible so he can protect Mario from harm. Playing in this mode is a great way to enjoy Super Mario Odyssey with a friend or younger players who aren’t used to the game, and all you need is one Joy-Con each!

The Treehouse team also played around in the Wooded Kingdom, which wasn’t part of the E3 demo on the show floor. You can see more gameplay from this world in the video below, which also features a T-Rex in a very dapper hat.
