Nintendo revealed a number of new mechanics for its Super Mario Odyssey platformer for Switch (read our preview) at the Electronic Entertainment Expo trade show last week in Los Angeles, and one of the biggest changes that we experienced while playing it at E3 is that Mario can now play dress-up.
The publisher has shown Mario running around in different outfits in a handful of Odyssey trailers and screenshots since announcing the game in October. The plumber can ditch his default overalls in favor of a tuxedo, an Al Capone-style pinstripe suit, his construction outfit from Super Mario Maker, and more. Fans have since pieced together that many of these outfits are from previous Nintendo spinoffs like NES Golf or Super Mario Land. But Mario donning a sombrero and poncho isn’t just a reference or a fashion statement (or a stereotype), it also has ramifications for how you can explore Odyssey’s wacky worlds.
In the clip above, you can see me try on Mario’s…
