Nintendo has released a new 7-minute Super Mario Odyssey gameplay video during its Nintendo Direct livestream yesterday. The gameplay video features a first look at several new environments.

The game is the first Super Mario franchise title that will not feature the iconic "game over" screen that was included in previous entries.
Instead of the default "game over" screen players will simply see their currency decrease by ten every time they die. Once players are out of currency the same screen will appear, but the counter will not decrease.
Along with the new gameplay video Nintendo has also announced a Nintendo Switch bundle that features both the console and the game at a slightly reduced price. The Joy-Con controllers included in the bundle are colored in red. A handheld carrying pouch is also included.
Super Mario Odyssey launches on October 27th, 2017, for Nintendo Switch.
