Super Mario Odyssey has been confirmed to have infinite lives and no Game Over screen. Mario will still be able to “plunges to the depths”, according to Nintendo. However, instead of losing the limited amount of lives you have and getting a Game Over, you will just lose 10 coins. Even if you don’t have 10 coins, you will still be able to continue and you will not get a complete game over. 1-Ups will not be in the game, either, as the life system has been replaced by Coins. According to game producer Yoshiaki Koizumi, he said to Polygon during E3 last month that the team wanted to allow players to “get into a kingdom and you can just kind of continually keep going through that kingdom without being pulled out”, so this is why they made this decision. Super Mario Odyssey releases on October 27th on the Nintendo Switch.
