Speaking to the microphones of Gamespot, Yoshiaki Koizumi from Nintendo EPD has suggested that Super Mario Odyssey could include multiplayer game modes in local and online. More details will come in the next few weeks.
Yoshiaki Koizumi stated the following when he was asked about Super Mario Odyssey multiplayer mode: “The first thing I want to say about multiplayer is that since this is the Nintendo Switch, and it does have two controllers, it’s very easy for you to imagine handing one to another person. So there probably is some…thing you’ll hear about multiplayer. The timing is not quite there, so I hope you’re able to wait for a little longer to hear about that.”
“As for Network features, since this is something the hardware is capable of, there might be something that you’ll head about there as well, and we hope you’ll look forward to it,” Koizumi finished.
In short, it is very likely that Super Mario Odyssey ends to include multiplayer features for online and local gaming.
Please note that the title will be released exclusively on Nintendo Switch on 27 October.
