Mario poised for a triumphant return

Mario poised for a triumphant return

Around this time in 2016, many people were questioning Nintendo’s ability to realistically compete with Sony and Microsoft.

The Wii U had tanked, and the new console, Switch, seemed like it would be just too basic to make an impact.

The Switch though has gotten off to a blistering start, selling almost three million units in the first month alone.

The first big release – Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – is now considered to be one of the best games created and to further help the recovery, Nintendo will once again turn to its biggest star.

Super Mario Odyssey was announced yesterday and will see the plumber’s first foray into the “real” world.

In at least one level, he spends some time in a city, modelled on New York, where he can roam around and do tasks on your own.

It’s just like Grand Theft Auto, but you’re helping people instead of shooting them in the face.
