Super Mario Odyssey will be released somewhere during Fall, and enthusiastic players and veteran players alike are looking forward to it. Especially since the game’s mechanics have significantly evolved over the passing of time and evolution of technology.

With respect to Super Mario Odyssey, Miyamoto, the creator of the character and game series, has said that the evolution of technology and its capabilities have opened new roads for the game’s mechanics. However, he believes that these capabilities are as efficient as the designer’s ability to describe – and prescribe – the designing to his fellow developers.
He’s said that:
“I think it’s really essential and crucial to be able to communicate to the programmer in exact detail how you want your concept to come to life”.
And as far as the creation of Super Mario Odyssey is concerned, he has said that, whenever he spoke with directors, he demanded an almost innate working experience with technology and to speak in clear terms. Also, for Miyamoto it is important that the developer can use numbers and flowcharts to be clear about what the message he wants to transmit to the programmer is.
This goes further down to the players of the game. And for Super Mario Odyssey he says that he needed to put in place a clear set of rules in order to ensure that all types of in-game mechanics are understood.
For him it is important that the player knows what happens at all times: when a player makes a move, touches an object. What can be touched and what cannot be touched. And he speaks about one of the goons in Super Mario Odyssey of whom Miyamoto thinks that it is his masterpiece. The Tox Box is a constantly moving cube trying to crush Mario. On the side, there is a hole in which Mario can hide.
But when put in in-game mechanics terms, Miyamoto says that it becomes complicated. Nonetheless, the creator of the Mario Universe and game series is all and happy of the thought that with Super Mario Odyssey he has achieved a milestone, and that this will help him with future Mario projects.
