Mario’s famous red hat is a character in itself in Super Mario Odyssey. Not only is it able to break objects such as crates, but it can also collect pick-ups for you when it comes into contact with them when it is tossed. The hat can also be thrown at enemies and other objects, which allows you to take control of them.

In the below videos, we see Mario’s hat being thrown towards everything from frogs, taxis, Bullet Bills, goombas, dinosaurs, rockets, and more. As explained above, they’re then under your spell.

Of course we also get the traditional Mario platforming, as well as the colourful worlds. The second video shows off half an hour of gameplay.

In surprising news, the game will be released as early as October 27th, so not long to wait now to play what has already been branded the weirdest Mario game so far. That really is saying a lot.
