New Super Mario Odyssey Luncheon Kingdom Footage Shown at Gamescom 2017 (VIDEO)
The Nintendo Switch has already had a stellar year thus far, launching in March alongside the release of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Arms, and Splatoon 2 all releasing since then. The hybrid portable/home console will also soon see its first core Super Mario entry in its library with the release of Super Mario Odyssey this October. The internet has already been captivated by the new “capturing” mechanic, allowing Mario to become different objects and beings around him. Now, we also have a new look at the Super Mario Odyssey Luncheon Kingdom, a new setting to be featured in the game.
Nintendo has shared their entire Wednesday livestream on YouTube, and seen in the video seen around the 4:31:00 mark, the new Super Mario Odyssey Luncheon Kingdom levels have been exhibited in depth. The Luncheon Kingdom is one of several new areas that Mario will venture to during his travels in the new game, hence the “Odyssey” title. The physical kingdom appears to largely be made up of giant versions of food, and Mario can even purchase a chef’s outfit. The enemies there will allow reference cooking such as the Hammer Bros. who throw frying pans instead of hammers.
The puzzles also take advantage of the food theme such as Mario “capturing” a Lava Bubble, so that he can enter a pot and cook the food inside, or “capturing” a Hammer Bro and throwing the frying pans at cheese walls. This new kingdom certainly seems quite clever in its design, and it will be great to see Mario take us to Flavortown.
