Try as hard as you like, you’ll never see a game over screen in Super Mario Odyssey. Suck as hard as a Hoover, you still won’t see one.
Nintendo revealed that in their upcoming open-world Mario adventure that if you die or fall into some chasm, you won’t “lose a life” anymore. You’ll only lose ten coins. That’s it. In fact, it seems like the concept of lives has gone out the window.
The news came by way of Nintendo’s official Japanese account for Super Mario Odyssey. An example was included, depicting Mario dying to a Spiny.
