Super Mario Odyssey co-op multiplayer has second player controlling Mario's cap Cappy

Nintendo recently held a Treehouse livestream during E3 2017 and has confirmed that "Super Mario Odyssey" will feature local co-op gameplay. While controlling Cappy, the second player is able to fly around independently from Mario, which they show off by solving a puzzle involving collecting music notes.

Cappy allows players to perform actions that the lead character can not. While one gets to control the titular character, another controls his new magical hat, named Cappy. We also got a new trailer that showed a ton of things we'd never seen before, including Mario throwing his hat on enemies and objects to inhabit them. With the creatures that Mario captures with his hat, he will be able to imitate their abilities.

What Can Cappy Do In Co-op Mode?

"That's was certainly intentional on our part", Nintendo producer Yoshiaki Koizumi said during the livestream.

Talking about India rematch in the final, he said, "Both teams ( India and Bangladesh ) are playing well, so we will play whoever gets through".

The demo runs for half an hour, most of which is played in single-player, so give it a look for even more insight into the next big Mario game. As we already know, there will be a Mario Kart ride which is detailed in the quote below and also an awesome sounding Donkey Kong roller coaster. In addition to playing the game, I found out a ton of details about it.

Nintendo then unveiled the Super Mario Odyssey amiibo that will be coming out.

In contrast to many recent Mario adventures, Odyssey is an open, 3D exploration game akin to Super Mario 64 or Super Mario Sunshine. Nintendo wanted take advantage of the fact that the Switch comes with two controllers by default, hence the mode.
