Mario’s adventures started on Nintendo’s latest console, Nintendo Switch, with Super Mario Odyssey in 2017. Super Mario Odyssey has become the best platforming game to date, interestingly, it does not even follow the traditional Mario games, and its revamped game mechanics and experience made it highly successful.
And it looks like Nintendo is gearing up for a sequel to Super Mario Odyssey. Social media influencer Nintendo Prime shared on Twitter recently that Nintendo is sending out surveys about Super Mario Odyssey via email, asking the players about their favorite voyages in Super Mario Odyssey.
Uh… Nintendo is emailing me and others about Mario Odyssey in 2023. They REALLY want us to play the game again…

Fans in the comments have quickly concluded that this could be related to the sequel of Super Mario Odyssey. The Super Mario Bros. Movie is also coming out in 2023, so Nintendo might be planning to go big with Mario’s franchise this year.
About Super Mario Odyssey
Super Mario Odyssey is a 2017 platform game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch. An entry in the Super Mario series, it follows Mario and his new ally Cappy, a sentient hat that allows Mario to control other characters and objects as they journey across various kingdoms to save Princess Peach from his nemesis Bowser’s plans of forced marriage.
In contrast to the linear gameplay of prior entries, the game returns to the primarily open-ended, 3D platform gameplay featured in Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine.
In Odyssey, Mario explores various kingdoms and collects Power Moons hidden inside them, used as a fuel source to power an airship known as the Odyssey to travel to new locations.
Cappy’s main function is the “capture” ability, letting Mario possess enemies and other objects, helping him solve puzzles and progress in the game. After completing the main story mode, other post-game kingdoms are unlockable, and an additional minigame, “Luigi’s Balloon World”, is playable. The game supports multiplayer and virtual reality with a Nintendo Labo virtual reality kit.
Odyssey was released on October 27, 2017. It received universal acclaim, with praise for its inventiveness and originality and for improving on concepts introduced in previous Mario games. Odyssey is cited as one of the greatest video games ever made. The game won several awards and has sold 23 million copies, making it one of the bestselling Switch games and the fastest-selling Super Mario game.
