Nintendo E3 207: Super Mario Odyssey Local Co-op Confirmed, Other Player Controls Cappy

At E3 2017, Nintendo finally showed off gameplay from the upcoming Super Mario Odyssey, and today it confirmed that the game will have two-player local co-op on the Nintendo Switch. Before today, it seemed likely that co-op would be coming to the game, but now Nintendo has officially revealed it. The most interesting part of it, though, is that the second player controls Cappy.

On Nintendo’s Treehouse stream today, the company showed off cooperative gameplay for the first time. Each player holds a Joy-Con, and while one runs around as Mario, the other takes control of his magic hat. Cappy can fly around Mario, protecting him from enemies and helping him complete puzzles.

According to Nintendo, the co-op is meant as a way of introducing players to Super Mario Odyssey and video games in general. The controls are simpler for Cappy; the Mario player has full control over the camera. You can check out a bit of the gameplay in this GIF, from Wario64’s Twitter.

Super Mario Odyssey launches on October 27, and you can read our E3 2017 impressions here. You can also check out a lengthy gameplay demo here. The game hasn’t been the only thing Nintendo’s talked about this week: it announced several new games, like Metroid Prime 4 and a new Yoshi game.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
