Can you believe it? Super Mario Odyssey is one year old already, as it’s now 27th October in Japan. It seems like it was only yesterday we were eagerly anticipating the game’s release on the Nintendo Switch. At the same time, it also feels like a lifetime ago as we’ve played many other games since.
In celebration of the big occasion, Nintendo’s Japanese Twitter account has released some special artwork (see above) and an instrumental dance version of Jump Up, Super Star:
In the UK, the official Super Mario Twitter account is promoting a snapshot contest to celebrate the one year anniversary. The contest is open until 30th October, with the winners to be announced on 12th November. Here’s a bit about it:
The theme for this round celebrates the one year anniversary of Super Mario Odyssey – it’s ‘Yourfavourite Captures’. So, find the things you love to Capture most and snap away! Get as creative as you like!
Upload your best shots to Twitter or Instagram before the end time, including the #OdysseyJournal and #SuperMarioOdyssey hashtags
After the closing date, we’ll select our three favourites and feature them on the official Nintendo website, and our Facebook and Twitter pages!
In case you missed it, last week Nintendo added new snapshot filters and a new zombie outfit to Super Mario Odyssey to celebrate the spooky season. The outfit will set you back 5,000 coins and the headwear is priced at 3,000 coins.
