New Musical Trailer Shows Off Mario's Stylin' Dance Moves

Nintendo sure have a flair for the light hearted and dramatic that no other publisher really matches. Today that unique sense of style arrives in the form of a new trailer for Super Mario: Odyssey in which real actors dance with the red hatted plumber, set to the game's amazing 'Jump Up, Super Star!' theme song.

Gamers delight in having control of their bodies ripped from them, enjoy watching a dog get taken over, and everything is so happy I almost forget how inherently dark the concept of host possession is. Everything about this game just looks joyous; I can't wait to dance through the streets and be happy about the loss of my free will. It all just looks so fun.
