Super Mario Odyssey May Have Multiplayer And Network Features

In a roundtable interview hosted by GameSpot with Yoshiaki Koizumi and Kenta Motokura of Nintendo EPD yesterday, the talk of multiplayer and network features in Super Mario Odyssey came up. Judging by the comments made, it’s certainly something that we could expect. When asked about multiplayer and online support, Koizumi stated:

“The first thing I want to say about multiplayer is that since this is the Nintendo Switch, and it does have two controllers, it’s very easy for you to imagine handing one to another person. So there probably is some…thing you’ll hear about multiplayer. The timing is not quite there, so I hope you’re able to wait for a little longer to hear about that.”

“As for Network features,” Koizumi continued, “since this is something the hardware is capable of, there might be something that you’ll head about there as well, and we hope you’ll look forward to it.”



  1. Honestly, multiplayer in Super Mario 3D World made it one of my favorite Mario games. I’m not sure how well that would translate into this style of Mario, but I’m sure it’ll be good.

  2. I hope there’s online play, there’s too many resources to waste on just playing alone the whole time. Maybe co-op levels or just online multiplayer in general.
