In Super Mario Odyssey Mario has to keep Princess Peach from Bowser's claws, who want to marry the princess. To do this, Mario has to travel through a number of different locations, including New Donk City, a copy of the non-fictional city of New York.

The game features typical movement mechanics, such as wall jumping, diving and long jumping, as well a new mechanic related to Mario's cap. The cap comes alive, can be used as a frisbee to grab items, but also to get hard-to-reach areas.

Mario's cap can be controlled by a second player by using one of the Joy-Con controllers. The second player can also use the cap to collect coins and to take out enemies.
