Mario & Friends Put on Dance Number in Jump Up, Super Star! – Super Mario Odyssey Musical

I’ve seen thousands of game trailers and commercials in my time as a gamer, including hundreds of Mario related ones. I think Nintendo has finally released one that tops them all, at least for the Mario franchise. In their latest commercial/trailer, Mario gets on the streets of a real life New Donk City, putting on a huge dance number with town residents and what appears to be a professional dance group. All while Pauline herself sings the theme song from Super Mario Odyssey.

Nintendo calls it a musical, which is fairly appropriate given they are using real life people here versus an animated bit that’s just a commercial. It’s very entertaining and I have to admit, the fact I love musicals probably plays a little bias into my enjoyment of it. Watch it and let us know what you think down in the comments!
