The googly-eyed hat in Super Mario Odyssey seems to have mystical powers that can allow Mario to possess his enemies.

During Nintendo’s E3 press conference, a new trailer, seen below, for the upcoming Nintendo Switch game revealed Mario chucking his hat at various baddies, including Bullet Bills and Piranha Plants, to spirit link into their bodies. Players can even take control of dinosaurs. Of course, when a T-Rex is around that should always be Mario’s number one choice.

Inanimate objects can also be taken over to traverse new areas and gain a new perspective as Mario explores this new world. Aside from possession, the inclusion of dinosaurs in the game is taking a strange but exciting turn.

Nintendo also revealed the previously leaked release date of October 27th, 2017 is when fans can get their hands on Super Mario Odyssey.
