With the newest update for Super Mario Odyssey just being released, we thought we’d talk about which costumes or hats we would like to see in future updates. Agree or disagree with our opinions? Let us know in the comments below!
I know this has almost no chance of happening…but a Mario Pikachu costume would throw so many people off. Part of a limited time promotion in Japan, a Mario Pikachu costume would really shake things up in terms of Mario’s wardrobe. It’s very unlikely — as Mario Pikachu would require the full cooperation with Game Freak/The Pokémon Company and a unique model. It’d be a wacky crossover that a lot of people wouldn’t see coming.
Hanafuda cards are of major significance to Nintendo, being the original product of the company all the way back in the 19th century. Nintendo makes many references to their origins and this includes within Super Mario Odyssey itself (as an Odyssey sticker from the Bowser Kingdom). However a costume has not appeared yet and, in my opinion, this would be a great outfit. The artwork above has Mario still with his traditional red cap but they can change this to Napoleon’s iconic headwear instead for more originality. A unique outfit and a great throwback, make it happen Nintendo!
I’m more into cultural clothing and I’m already very happy with the inclusion of the New Years-Outfit. But Nintendo did such a good job with Mario’s outfit fanservice in Odyssey, what is left?
Well, with Football Mario representing one of America’s most popular sports, how about an outfit representing Europe’s most popular sport? Of course, I’m talking about football…or better known as soccer around here. I think Mario still has his soccer outfit somewhere in his closet…when it wasn’t burned off during his quite brutal and destructive soccer matches.
So as a new costume maybe the Propeller Suit wouldn’t be able to fly like it originally could. Who cares? I always liked seeing Mario with his little copterhead.
