Preview videos: Super Mario Odyssey

Super Mario Odyssey is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated games of the end of the year. It is with a little apprehension, but also a lot of excitement that we put our hands on the Joy-Cons to discover some elements of gameplay for approximately one hour. It was quite difficult for us to stop playing the game, and we are looking forward to the release date, in the meantime though, we offer you a bunch videos we captured ourselves.

So, looks like the game is as good as it looks, right? Can´t wait to play this with my Switch! BIG THANKS for the videos, as always!

Thank you all so much for these videos in very high quality!!!

Nintendo's games' beautiful art styles and gorgeous colors deserve a high quality treatment to truly pop out. Super Mario Odyssey looks freaking epic every time I see it. Just looks incredibly fun and jolly as hell. Another GOTY contender.

Yeah, this looks like a system seller.

Agree. This makes me want to buy a switch. Perfect game to cheer me up in the upcoming cold winter months.

Played these videos on my 65B6 and to my surprise it looks really crisp, even when sitting 2 meters away from the TV. My guess this is at least 900p or higher.

1st party Nintendo games are really polished, its pretty impressive.

I think it like you, the look is great.
For me The resolution is dynamic 1080p, with a range of 800p-1080p like splatoon 2.

Definitely dynamic res. And why in 2017 are they using checkerboard transparency? Damn... Also noticed Mario's voice and various other sfx sound a bit rough. like they're 11KHz or something. Seems to be using selective AA too, Mario seems smooth but you can see aliasing on stuff in the levels. Might just be proximity based or dynamic like res. Just got to the 5th vid and the music sounded all rough at the beginning too. Hopefully just the vids, would be a pretty big issue if the sound was broken like that in the final version. Saw a bit of stuttering too, guessing they set a lower limit to the dynamic res and when it got a bit too much the fps drops instead.

    Melmoth @jmd749: OLED is king for watching movies, and especially if you sit off-center (9 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @jmd749: FALD can be a bit hit and miss, depending on how many zones and how aggressive it's programmed to work. Like the Q8 that's got far fewer zones (causing glow around bright objects) (11 Hours ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 I'm excited for you, that is a beast of a television, with far superior HDR performance than any OLED with minimal to no burn-in issues. :P (14 Hours ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 When I got my OLED 2017 FALD panels were more expensive, it's good to see they've dropped in price. I'd probably have bought the same as you, cause tbf FALD with just under 500 zones is good for a 65" (14 Hours ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 @Melmoth: 15ms latency is pretty good and 2K nits will make for some very good HDR viewing, though a higher electricity bill. :P Agreed, I play old games on my PC monitor to avoid burn in on my OLED. (15 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Most of the rough edges in BFV are around stuff like UI. The actual game is solid as hell. (20 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX This is also the first Battlefield game that won't have expansions, which is something consumers asked for. (20 Hours ago)
