Super Mario Odyssey 2: Is the Sequel Releasing? Latest News

Super Mario Odyssey 2

Before we begin with the Super Mario Odyssey 2 release date and other official reports, I would like you to comment below the year when you first played any Super Mario game version. 

Just like me, I am hoping the majority of you played it before 2010 or even 2005.

Just like Gaming company Nintendo which is super old, this game has also been around for quite a long (the first-ever Mario game came out in 1983 with the title Mario Bros).

Even those who don’t play or can’t play Mario games anymore will surely smile or become interested in sharing their past stories whenever this game is mentioned anywhere! 

I first played it in 2008 when I was a teen, and even now, I can’t resist myself without saying, “THOSE WERE THE DAYS”. When no one gave a damn about graphics (2D games were on the rise), and the only focus was gaming experience.

 Super Mario Bros was another blockbuster (a word not doing justice to the game’s remarkably well success, but please manage!) of this great franchise!

Super Mario Odyssey: Success so far

It is a Nintendo Switch platform-specific game, released on October 27, 2017, by Nintendo. 

While the game has changed dramatically with the addition of a lot of new features, the original story of Mario Bros is still continued. 

Our childhood superhero Mario is yet again all set to save the princess Peach from his all-time enemy Bowser who only dreams of marrying her forcefully. 

While the game was released in late 2017, you will be surprised to know that the development work began right after the release of Super Mario 3D World, which dates back to 2013!

A whopping 20 million copies have been sold as of March 2021, which makes it one of the best selling Nintendo Switch games till today!

Unlike other Mario versions developed for common gamers, one special factor that was kept in mind while developing Super Mario Odyssey was to make it as appealing as possible for the “core fans” of original Super Mario Bros and yes that’s us! 

This version also received the “best version of the series/franchise” award for being close to the original Super Mario Bros.

Super Mario Odyssey 2: Development and Release Date Possibilities

When the game first came out in 2017, developers didn’t plan to release a part 2 and were very particular about it. One major reason for such a decision was to avoid the competition from existing Super Mario Odyssey 1, another reason being able to add a DLC (downloadable content) to add features to the existing version. 

However, seeing the unexpected success of the first part, they’re considering making the sequel.

While there is no official statement of either continuing or discontinuing the series, making a sequel of their biggest success can be considered practically guaranteed. 

Shigeru Miyamoto who holds several high positions in the company and is the producer as well as director of Nintendo has insisted on making the sequel.

Super Mario Odyssey 2: Conclusion as on 2021

We looked deeper and deeper, but no official statement has been made by the company so far.

Several rumours surfaced about the game development and release date in the first quarter of 2021 but due to missing factual information, it can be kept aside.

With the company working on several other huge projects and the Super Mario Odyssey 1 team already deployed in making a completely different title, the wait is going to be quite long from here.

But we can hopefully get the confirmation of the game development from the company by the end of 2021.
