A quick snippet from today's Direct that brings back some Mario nostalgia. No word if these paintings are going to be all over, or if they are special locations. Looks like this one takes you to New Donk City. It might be a way to teleport to other kingdoms, or portions of those kingdoms you can't otherwise access.
This game is a pure celebration. Everything from the costumes to these little easter eggs. Feels really special.
Calling it right now. This game will beat out BOTW for GOTY by most gaming outlets. Haven't been this hyped for a Mario game since Super Mario Galaxy.
