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:
