Super Mario: a photographic odyssey part 1 - Reader’s Feature
Super Mario Odyssey – the world’s best wedding photos

A reader makes good use of Super Mario Odyssey’s photo mode, to show why exactly its his new favourite video game.

How do you make what is already the best game ever even better? Add a photo mode of course! Super Mario Odyssey would have been my favourite game ever without it, but being able to take photos of Mario’s exploits for the first time adds a whole new layer of fun to the adventure.

It’s amazing how much character Mario has without the need for any words. He is just so photogenic! Especially with his new expanded wardrobe. Who knew I’d get such excitement from dressing a short Italian plumber up as a sailor and taking photographs of him?! So without further ado, please enjoy a selection of my snaps from my Odyssey with Mario.

(WARNING: I haven’t included any bosses or major secrets but if you want to stay completely spoiler free you may wish to stop reading now.)
