Mario touring the USA to drive up Odyssey hype


He'll be your hero

Remember back in 1994, when WWE's Lex Luger went around America on a bus to build momentum for his upcoming Summerslam match with Yokozuna? Luger went from state-to-state kissing babies, signing autographs, and wearing stars and stripes Zubaz to get the country behind him for his defining moment, toppling the villainous WWE champion and taking the belt for Uncle Sam.

Then Summerslam happened and Luger choked.

Undaunted, Mario is taking a page out of the Luger handbook, and is preparing a bus tour of North America. Starting in Los Angeles on October 10 and ending in New York on October 26, one day before the launch of Super Mario Odyssey, the decked-out Super Mario Odyssey trailer will journey across the land, stopping to allow for photo sessions and for fans to try out the new game.

So keep an eye out for the colourful behemoth, adorned by a huge inflatable Cappy, if it rolls through a city near you. The tour will stop at Los Angeles, Dallas, Chicago, Philadelphia and New York. Location details and times can be found on Nintendo's official site at the link below.

Whether Mario will be wearing stars and stripes Zubaz is sadly unconfirmed.
