Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Super Mario Odyssey 2 will never happen

It's a bold claim. Super Mario Odyssey is a huge hit, critically and commercially. Do we need a direct sequel? No. Is there a good chance we'll get one? Yes.

Whatever year Breath of the Wild's sequel doesn't come out in 2020-2022 would be a great time for Super Mario Odyssey 2. I think there's plenty of ideas they could implement. Maybe they could mix power-ups with the Capture Mechanic. How about adding Luigi and finally having split-screen? Throw in Yoshi to ride as well. And don't use the tired Bowser kidnaps Peach plot. You could have different enemies. Basically, there's a lot of potential.



Lifetime Sales Predictions 

Switch: 125 million (was 73, then 96, then 113 million)

PS5: 105 million Xbox Series S/X: 60 million

PS4: 122 mil (was 100 then 130 million) Xbox One: 50 mil (was 50 then 55 mil)

3DS: 75.5 mil (was 73, then 77 million)

I simply think there's just more potential in another 3D World style game. Having the same basic gameplay concept, but without the "play-it-safe" mentality that game suffered from along with fleshed out mechanics would probably be a better idea in the long run. The team gets to do another 3D Mario with only a fraction of the team size and budget, Nintendo gets a big multiplayer hit for the holidays, and they have another game for those who prefer the more traditional Mario style. It's a Win-Win-Win honestly.
