Super Mario Odyssey
Ahead of the launch of Super Mario Odyssey, Nintendo is hosting a cross-country tour in the United States. At each stop, fans will be able to meet Mario himself (well… someone wearing a costume at least) with Cappy, take photos with him, and of course, play Super Mario Odyssey!
For this promotional event, Nintendo went and decorated a trailer with Super Mario Odyssey artwork, but also a giant inflatable Cappy. The areas where the tour will stop are inspired by actual places from the game. As you can expect, the tour will be open to the public, but on a first-come, first-served basis.
Here’s where and when this tour will stop:
