Nintendo just released a commercial for Super Mario Odyssey nearly two minutes long in the spirit of a musical combining live-action with animation. The rendered animation of Mario looks stunning as he runs and jumps around what is meant to be a real-life version of New Donk City as Mayor Pauline sings and it blends quite naturally with the environment and real performers. Footage of actual gameplay is shown as well.
This is certainly one of the best advertisements I’ve seen in a while. Nintendo never drops the ball when it comes to maintaining hype.
