During the latest Nintendo Direct, a feature on Super Mario Odyssey gave a look at the many worlds and enemies Mario will encounter on the Nintendo Switch. On a more quirky level, fans can also look forward to the chance to get a good photo of Mario surrounded by all of Odyssey‘s magical splendor.
Known as Snapshot Mode, the player can freeze time to look at all of the angles on the screen. In the video, seen below, we get a first look at the feature as Mario hops into the air to throw Cappy at the screen. Once time is frozen, the camera can be zoomed in and out or even tilted to get the perfect shot to create a wallpaper for mobile phones.
The editing doesn’t stop there either, as players can blur the background to make Mario the focus of the picture or turn it into sepia tone or black and white for a filtered look. There are even nifty Super Mario Odyssey stickers that can be added to any photo to create your own custom branded screenshot like the pros!
While the Switch has a built in snapshot button, not every title has its own photo mode. However, Splatoon 2 has a photo mode that will show off the Inklings and their creative side with posed selfies and the ability to share them in the Splatoon community. Perhaps Mario will have a similar functionality apart from social media so players can keep an eye on their friends in-game.
Super Mario Odyssey launches exclusively for Nintendo Switch on October 27th.
