Nintendo celebrates Super Mario Odyssey's 3rd anniversary with a special tweet

3 years and going strong!

It might seem impossible, but its already been 3 years since Super Mario Odyssey hit the Switch. One of the Switch's flagship titles, Super Mario Odyssey is still being enjoyed by millions around the globe. That's why Nintendo put together the tribute to Super Mario Odyssey above. Mario, Bowser, and the gang got together to do a little dance tribute for the 3-year anniversary, and everyone's looking better than ever!

Instead of having this, why not add more content to the game? Like a Luigi mode or more Power Moons or something.

Because that takes a lot more work, for probably not very much to gain financially?

If they said earlier that they intend to add more content to their evergreen games, then they probably should.

I've been assuming that Odyssey's DLC went the way of BotW's, but only time will tell.

MK8 is the highest selling Switch game of all time (for now). Would it really be a good use of time and resources to create DLC for a 6 year old game? They did make some DLC for SMO, so you can't say they haven't fulfilled the letter of the law, but I'm asking sincerely, are you that eager to pay more money for a little more content in a game that already has 800+ moons? 🤔 More power to you if you are, but I'd rather my money and their time go to making a great follow-up to a launch year classic.

Then explain that logic for Smash and why a two year old game is still getting newer content to this date despite being based on the previous version?

SMO atleast is a new game. Again, Nintendo said that they intend to add new content to their evergreen titles. And they just added vr modes for SMO and BOTW two years later...so yeah, anything is possible.

Multiplayer/co-op-focused games have a different life cycle than a single-player game. There's no title more evergreen than GTA5 and it has had a lot of updates and life.... for its online multiplayer mode, yet there's been no single-player DLC.

If Super Mario Odyssey was a loot-based co-op platformer then they probably would be updating it, but name me a major single-player focused game that's received a 3+ year long cycle of single-player focused DLC. Stardew Valley maybe? That's it? If Nintendo and every other major publisher *could* make money by adding extra content for years on single-player games, why have none of them done so? It's obviously not because they have never thought of it.

The VR modes added to the games you mentioned were for the sake of selling Labo.

If Super Mario Odyssey was a loot-based co-op platformer then they probably would be updating it, but name me a major single-player focused game that's received a 3+ year long cycle of single-player focused DLC.

Minecraft? And just because the game is heavily multiplayer wise doesn't always mean that the lifespan for them is higher than that of single player.

Point here is that Nintendo said that they want to add more content to their evergreen titles and Smash as of now is still at it.

You're comparing what may literally be the highest grossing game of all time (Not including mobile games), that DOES have a lot of longevity thanks to its multiplayer/co-op ability btw, to a single-player focused platformer. And again, Smash Bros is a multiplayer focused game. There are annual and local tournaments still involving Smash Bros and there still will be for years to come. How many can you find involving SMO?....

Maybe that should tell you something.

Whether multiplayer is a huge factor or not isn't the point. Because they said they plan to add more content to their evergreen titles and SMO is one of them.

It is the point if you're a company who's interested in getting a good ROI.

We're obviously not going to see eye-to-eye, but if there was money to be made from single-player DLC for popular multi-year old single-player games, more companies (like Rockstar and Nintendo) would be making them. If Nintendo says "We will make DLC for more of our evergreen titles" then you have to understand that as a company there is an implied addendum to that statement of: "if it makes financial sense to do so."

EDIT: Accidental double post. I'll say I really liked Odyssey and thought it was very substantial on content.

Super Mario Odyssey was one of the first games that I got for the Switch and it's been of my favorites ever since than. Happy anniversary Mario Odyssey!
