There’s many ways to play the super-fun Super Mario Odyssey on the Nintendo Switch. In a recent interview with TIME, Super Mario Odyssey producer Yoshiaki Koizumi and director Kenta Motokura recommended that fans use the game with the Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons detached for the best and most enjoyable experience. However, how you choose to play the game which launches October 27th is totally up to you.
“You can play it either way, with the Joy-Cons attached or detached, but playing with them detached, and using some of these motion controls, we believe it feels a bit better, we’ve arranged for it to be a more positive experience,” says Motokura. “As far as instructing the player on the different controls, whether playing docked or undocked, there are some things we’re not able to show you today, but that explanation or way of teaching players is in the game.”
