1. Super Mario Odyssey

Many are saddened by not being able to travel to Japan for the opening of Super Nintendo World in Universal Studios Japan. A cure for the fans would be a 3D adventure, Super Mario Odyssey from the comfort of your home.

It’s a must game for everyone to connect and enjoy the company of others.
