Super Mario Odyssey ditches the 'game over' screen completely

Share

Dying in a Mario game is a pretty common thing, but as long as you have enough lives you can typically avoid a game over screen without much of a fuss.

Nintendo is finally making moves into the smartphone space with its Super Mario Run and Fire Emblem Heroes apps, which has lead some to believe it may spread its wings onto even more platforms. While Mario can die in myriad ways throughout the game, he'll never make the player sit through one of the iconic end screens. Whenever Mario's help drops to zero, he will lose 10 coins and if he has less than 9 coins, the game will continue. Close in the lines, the attention span of an average gamer is very less and when it says game over, you should close the game and do something else.

"By the way, if you fail with nine coins or less, it won't be Game Over".

"We also wanted people to be able to, you know, you get into a kingdom and you can just kind of continually keep going through that kingdom without being pulled out", Koizumi told Polygon at E3 last month.

Super Mario Odyssey is looking pretty good - it looks weird and different but still absolutely brilliant, and it's hard not to have confidence in Nintendo's ideas coming of the back of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

It's a little bit sad to see the iconic game over go by the wayside. "So that was why we kind of wanted to get rid of the lives idea".

"Nintendo fans are mental over the upcoming "#Super Mario Odyssey".
