Top Tuesday: Favorite Kingdoms In Super Mario Odyssey

Happy Tuesday!

Hype from Super Mario Odyssey has gone down a little bit. I haven’t had a chance to go back to the game and find the rest of the moons, but I did want to talk about some of my favorite levels from the game.

5. Cap Kingdom

This kingdom isn’t very large and, especially in the beginning of the game, you don’t do too much here. Still, I think it’s a cool place. It’s unique as far as Mario games go and I enjoy the atmosphere.

4. Bowser’s Kingdom

Bowser levels are usually one of my favorites in Mario games. While I enjoyed this one, it didn’t make it too high on the list. It was certainly different and not at all what I expected. I missed the lava pits, but it was a cool level anyway. The music was excellent.

3. Snow Kingdom

This was a pretty level. I especially loved the many doors you could go through to get to smaller levels within the main level. Also, crushing the snow was the most satisfying thing ever.

2. Sand Kingdom

I’m not one for the desert levels, though this didn’t feel like a typical Mario desert. The Sand Kingdom is the second main kingdom and it’s so big that it’s almost overwhelming. But I felt like I was playing Breath of the Wild again because it was so open and there were so many things to do. Of course, the other kingdoms were big as well, but the Sand Kingdom felt the biggest and had the most stuff to do.

1. Mushroom Kingdom

Call me cliche, but I really enjoyed the throwback to Super Mario 64. The way they did the castle and the outside were awesome as well as the music and the various paintings that you could find and hop into.

    • The food one was cool too. It wasn’t anything I expected to come from Mario. And the Lost Kingdom was great too. All of them were pretty clever levels.

  1. I would love to get a Switch for the boys… OKAY, for us adults also! 😉 Can’t quite afford it 🙁 Anyone has a broken one they don’t want, send it my way. I bet I can fix it! LOL… (Slowly pushes a box of various system parts further under the bed…

    I can’t wait to play the new Zelda, someday!

    • I know exactly what you mean… Kris and I saved up for a while before the system officially came out. Even then we couldn’t find one, lol.

      Do you have a Wii U? You can play Breath of the Wild on that system, though I understand if you’d rather have it on the Switch.

      • Nope, still haven’t acquired a Wii U yet either. My sons think the world is close to ending because of these things! lol… I get to say things like… “When I was your age, I had to play E.T. on my Atari 2600!” Or… “I didn’t get an NES until I was 15!” lol…

  2. The Mushroom Kingdom was my all time favourite, simply the best of them all. After getting a certain outfit there, waves of nostalgia came flooding over me, it was overwhelming. The Metro Kingdom was really fun as well and with its secrets that gave a nod to classic Mario games. Definitely the two best kingdoms in the whole game

    • Oh, I was so excited to get that outfit! They did such a great job sending throwbacks to 64 and the like. If you’ve been a fan of Mario for so long, it’s hard not to enjoy Odyssey.

  3. Cap Kingdom was pretty cool indeed. I am just sad its dark and ghastly nature probably meant there was no chance for a Boo Kingdom or something of the sort. Maybe we’ll get that when the sequel comes around.

    Nice list, by the way. Sand Kingdom was my favorite by far. I loved how wide open it was and how it packed so many moons, caves, sublevels, and secrets.

    • I was thinking about that the other day, actually. They always have a Boo related place, which is always my favorite, and they didn’t have that. But, if you think about it, Cappy and everyone else in that Kingdoms look like ghosts. So maybe that’s supposed to count?

      Thanks, Sand Kingdom was great. It amazed me how many secrets they piled in there.

      • Yeah, I think Cap Kingdom worked as a replacement for an eventual Boo Kingdom. Had they done anything of the sort, we would have ended up with two kingdoms that would be quite similar.

    • Yeah, they’re all good. I’ll admit that New Donk City wasn’t as exciting for me I think because of the commercials. It was cool, obviously, but it wasn’t as a big deal. when I made it to the city.

      • I think the festival was what really put it over the top for me. It was such a great homage to the series and Nintendo’s history.
