I just got this game for Christmas. And it's honestly a masterpiece. Seriously talk about going all out! I cannot tell you how many times I fangirled when playing this and it definitely fixed my day since I was unfortunate enough to get sick. We are truly living in the golden age of Nintendo games.

I didn't realize that it was Kate Higgins voicing Pauline, much less that she had such a great singing voice! Pauline is just full of surprises:

- Making a few appearances mirroring her role since her debut in the 1981 game "Donkey Kong", she makes a huge comeback, in a main Mario title, no less!
- She's the mayor of New Donk City.
- She can sing, thanks to her VA Kate Higgins. What's unique about Kate's casting is that Mario games strictly hired VAs that are based in Seattle or Japan, but she's based in LA.

This game looks so great!! If there was ever a reason for me to get a Switch, now is the time.

Also, never thought I'd see Kate Higgins involved. She has a wonderful singing voice!

Yep, I would say it's a good time. I don't blame anyone for waiting and seeing during the first few months but ever since Splatoon 2 came out they've been taking no prisoners on its game lineup. Anyone getting a Switch for Christmas can get this, Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2, Mario + Rabbids, Xenoblade 2, Mario Kart 8D... and that's before even getting into all the indie games, Arcade Archives, and third-party support that's starting to ramp up.

I'm not quite done yet so I can probably elaborate later, but so far, I feel pretty good saying this is the best Mario since Galaxy 1 and 2. No questions asked.

After playing this, I have to say I'm brought back to the feeling of playing Super Mario 64.
While I love the Galaxy games, I do like how this game brings more emphasis on each kingdom rather than make a lot of different levels.

Breath of the Wild or this... It's kind of hard to decide.

@electronic456 IKR!, It's one of the best Mario games ever made, even the best one "I" ever played. Even like I said before, Super Mario Odyssey is a masterpiece! =)

Just got this game three days ago! It's one of the best Mario games I ever played in my life, out of all the Mario games I have, this the best one I've played yet. I definitely give it a 5 out of 5 stars all the way! No matter what, Super Mario Odyssey is a masterpiece! =)

Wow, Tails is Pauline and Ocarina of Time Link is Topper. Man I LOVE voice actors! I had no idea Kate had an incredible singing voice.
said at 6:24 PM on Sun Oct 29 2017
@ErronDio Most voice actors are talented singers. I instantly connected that it was Kate Higgins when I heard the singing.
said at 1:01 PM on Mon Oct 30 2017
@ErronDio Isn't that kind of a spoiler?, because I haven't got to the end yet. No offense by the way.

@Anthonyiscool64 It's not a spoiler cause Pauline and her song have been in basically all the trailers and promos since E3.
said at 1:32 PM on Mon Oct 30 2017
@NCZ Oh Ok, I just misunderstood.
said at 11:13 AM on Tue Oct 31 2017
@NCZ Because he said that Link is Topper and Tails is Pauline, originally I didn't know what he meant when he talked about it. But now I understood what he meant, the voices of the characters is what he meant. That's what had me a little confused at first, and that's why I thought it was a "spoiler". It was my mistake.

It's surprising to see Kate Higgins, the same one who voiced Lissa from Fire Emblem games be voicing Pauline, Mario's first rescued damsel in distress (before Princess Peach existed)/ex-girlfriend and sung this best wonderful vocal in the entire Mario franchise. Gives props for Greg Chun with this amazing music direction.

I've been watching a friend play through the game, and it's just as beautiful and charming as I hoped it'd be.

Between this and Breath of the Wild, I'd dare say Nintendo's pretty much dominated the year in terms of gaming

I'd forgotten that Kate Higgins had a background in jazz music. I don't think any praise could accurately describe how much I loved her singing in this.

Not going to lie Greg Chun has gotten quite lucky with Nintendo games. First he got cast as not one but two Fire Emblem lords and now he's directing this? What's next is he going to become Link's official dub voice?
said at 2:57 PM on Thu Oct 26 2017
@Soul-dragon he only directed the song
said at 7:37 PM on Thu Oct 26 2017

If Link ever happens to have a speaking role in a future Zelda game, I wouldn't object to that! XD

On a somewhat related note, I find it funny that OOT's Hero of Time has returned to a Nintendo game as a rabbit. :D

With him and Kate involved I think it's probably that Nintendo have realized they and Cup of Tea have a good thing going, since I'd bet it's there Kate did her part. It's a pretty happy coincidence when they're probably glad doing business with them and both Kate and Greg (whom they've worked with before) have a musical background.

After the last few in-house Mario games didn't have cast credits it all, it's awesome not only to see they're back, but they even get matched up to character. Plus, Kate Higgins' singing talent finally put to use in a game!

Only one more day until this masterpiece is finally in my hands...

@NCZ Who'd that the former actress of Tails would be Pauline!^^
said at 7:31 PM on Thu Oct 26 2017

Agreed, it's very nice to see Nintendo give it's voice cast some much-needed recognition!

It's also pretty neat that Nintendo went "tri-coastal" (Is that a thing? If not, I'm making it one! XD) for the voice recording on this game--between Seattle, LA and Japan.

On that note, I definitely did NOT expect Kate Higgins as Pauline! When I saw that in the credits, I was gobsmacked! What a coinkydink that she'd managed to be in two major Nintendo games only a week apart from each other!
said at 1:37 PM on Mon Oct 30 2017
@NCZ Her voice sounds pretty impressive!

I can already tell this is going to be a hit. I mean it looks awesome! However on an unrelated note, I am curious as to how Sega is doing (poor guys).

Sonic Mania is absolutely amazing. It and Odyssey will complement each other perfectly. It's crazy what a year this has been for platformers; even Crash managed to have a big comeback.

(Now.. Where's Klonoa 3?)

@NCZ It just keeps looking better every time I see it.

And somehow looking at this made me really glad to miss out on all three of the 8th gen consoles

Finally the Mario Sunshine heaven in me get to see that again

Also Bowzer's rad outfit...

The game still looks interesting, I'm still going to get no matter what when it comes, this will soon be another part of my Mario collection. Also, I'm seriously going to go crazy if I never get my hands on a Nintendo Switch really badly!

@Ghosty404 In New York, but it would be a missed opportunity if they didn't make an Italian place in this game, considering that Mario's Italian.

@SteelEthlan Maybe. But he and Luigi were raised in New York even if they were born in Italy.

I think this game has the potential to be something really special. It looks like it's taking the best aspects of Mario 64, Galaxy, and 3D World and mashing them all together. As much as I loved the two Galaxies and 3D World/3D Land, it's going to be really nice to see them revisit the more open sandbox style of 64 and Sunshine after all these years and technological advancements. This could be a real winner.
