Super Mario Odyssey’s Nintendo Switch Box Art Appears To Have Changed

It’s relatively unusual for game box art to change after it’s been officially revealed, but it seems that Super Mario Odyssey‘s box has been tweaked slightly: Sombrero Mario has been replaced with Snorkeling Mario.

The change was spotted by Twitter user Nibel, and several retailers now show the updated art. Gamestop, Target, and Amazon have Mario snorkeling, while Walmart and Best Buy still advertise the Sombrero Mario art.

Interestingly, the official Nintendo website still hasn’t changed the box art. As a result, it’s hard to say when or why this change was made, or even if it’s going to stay this way. However, a quick look at the archived version of Gamestop’s page from June shows that the box sported the Sombrero Mario art originally.

Super Mario Odyssey launches on October 27 for Switch. We got a lot of new info about the game at E3 2017, and you can read our impressions here. The game includes local multiplayer where one player controls Mario’s hat; in addition, it does not have game over screens.

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.
