During Tokyo's live Nintendo Switch stream, Nintendo revealed the Switch's first Mario title, Super Mario Odyssey.

In the brief trailer, we see Mario jump from a sewer and onto a street, a street in the real world. We then see Mario running past traditionally proportioned humans who seem stunned by the stumpy plumber's appearance. super-mario-oddysee

What follows is a series of Mario stunts and some Assassin's Creed-like climbing. Mario seems to travel to a few more locations afterwards. An arid desert, a lush jungle and many more. We even got a quick glimpse at some of Odyssey's bosses, a few of which were very reminiscent of some Mario Galaxy's .

Unfortunately, Super Mario Odyssey won't be a launch title. However, it was suggested it will be ready for release by Christmas 2017.

At the event, Nintendo announced a huge number of titles (full list coming soon) and also revealed an official release date and pricing.
