Is this a tease of more to come?
Super Mario Odyssey came to the Switch back in 2017, and many have been surprised that Nintendo didn’t follow up that successful launch with a major DLC expansion. While anything is possible with DLC, as we’re seeing with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe now, Nintendo hasn’t made a peep about new content for the game in years. That said, a new email from Nintendo is causing Nintendo fans to speculate.
Nintendo has sent out a Super Mario Odyssey-themed email to some Switch owners, and it’s trumpeting the game’s features, mechanics and locations. Along with that is one blurb that has really caught the attention of those who received the email. The blurb reads as follows:
“But there may be even more out there still to be discovered… Perhaps it’s worth hopping aboard the Odyssey once more and taking the trip all over again.”
Nintendo continuing advertisements for their games years after they launch is nothing new. Nintendo has been promoting games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Animal Crossing: New Horizons for a very long time now, and continue to do so with new commercials. The same has happened with Super Mario Odyssey, but to a somewhat lesser extent. The question is why is Nintendo doing this now, and why include the message above?
Again, some fans think Nintendo is hinting at things to come for Super Mario Odyssey, but that’s just speculation at this point. Nintendo could very well be spreading the word on Odyssey right now to reach some of the new Switch owners who’re looking for the next big game to play. Only the Big N knows what’s really going on, and obviously, they’re not telling!
