Breath of the Wild is great. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is fun. ARMS is definitely a good time. But there is no game headed to the Nintendo Switch in 2017 that is more hotly anticipated than Super Mario Odyssey. A Super Mario game is finally coming to the Switch. FINALLY! Odyssey will be released on October 27th, and it launches at the standard price point for all new top-tier Switch games: $59.99. Of course, if you’re an Amazon Prime subscriber you can save 20% by preordering it, dropping the price to just $47.99.

Here are some key details from the product page:

* Explore huge 3D kingdoms filled with secrets and surprises, including costumes for Mario and lots of ways to interact with the diverse environments – such as cruising around them in vehicles that incorporate the HD Rumble feature of the Joy-Con controller or exploring sections as Pixel Mario.
* Thanks to his new friend, Cappy, Mario has brand-new moves for you to master, like cap throw, cap jump and capture. With capture, Mario can take control of all sorts of things, including objects and enemies!
* Visit astonishing new locales, like skyscraper-packed New Donk City, and run into familiar friends and foes as you try to save Princess Peach from Bowser’s clutches and foil his dastardly wedding plans.
* A set of three new amiibo figures* – Mario, Princess Peach and Bowser in their wedding outfits – will be released at launch. Some previously released amiibo will also be compatible with this title. Tap supported amiibo to receive gameplay assistance – some amiibo will also unlock costumes for Mario when scanned!
