So I just realized how Odyssey starts.

So remember during the Switch Presentation when it was first announced we saw Bowser step on Mario’s hat?

So I was watching the Mario trailer today for E3 and noticed something when they were in the “intro” level I can assume.

That looks like the gates to a cemetery right? Like a little bit, because it’s all dark, dreary, and spooky. THEN I REALIZED WHAT CAPPY’S NORMAL FORM LOOKS LIKE.

HE LOOKS LIKE A GHOST, AND THEN HE PROCEEDS TO TURN INTO MARIO’S HAT. WHICH LOOKED DESTROYED BEFOREHAND.

SO BASICALLY, MARIO WAS SO SAD HIS HAT FUCKING DIED. THAT HE WAS ABOUT TO BURY IT AT A HAT CEMETERY. CAPPY DECIDED “MAN I DON’T FIT ON YOUR HEAD, LETS JUST FIX YOUR HAT UP” AND NOW MARIO HAS A HAT BUDDY TO BEAT BOWSER’S SHIT IN.

BEST STORY 10/10 WOULD BUY INSTANTLY.

The Odyssey

Here we go! Off the rails!

Did you know? Its time to raise our sails!

It’s freedom like you never knew!

Don’t need bags, or a pass!

Sail away- I’ll be there in a flash!

You could say my hat is off to you!

Oh, we can zoom all the way to the moon from this great, wide, wacky world!

Jump with me!

Grab coins with me!

Oh yeah!

It’s time to jump up in the air!

(Jump up in the air!)

Jump up, don’t be scared!

(Jump up, don’t be scared!)

Jump up and your cares will soar away!

And if you jump outside this world!

(Jump outside this world!)

Don’t fear, don’t shed a tear, ‘cause -

I’ll be your 1-up girl!

So lets all jump up super high!

(Jump up super high!)

High up in the sky!

(High up in the sky!)

There’s no power-up like dancing!

You know that you’re my super star!

(You’re my super star!)

No one else can take me this far!

I’m flipping the switch!

Get ready for this! Oh!

Let’s do the Odyssey!

Odyssey, ya’ see! Odyssey, ya’ see! Odyssey, ya’ see! Odyssey, ya’ see! Odyssey, ya’ see! Odyssey, ya’ see! Odyssey, ya’ see!

Odyssey! Odyssey!

Helen is not of Troy
and not of Sparta.
She does not live in the towers of burning Ilium,
or the ruined palaces of once-great Greece–
No, she is found between the folds of history
over and over and over again.

Blamed and de-famed and cruelly scorned,
She is every woman who bears the burden
of the faults of men and gods.

She is all of us–
History repeating itself,
maybe to punish
maybe to teach
maybe to remind
But it does not matter–
Whatever might be the ill-taught lesson,
the shouts of the imprisoned and deprived
are forever lost in the clanging of weapons,
false pride
and forgotten women.

Sing, o goddess, the rage of Helen
–which launched not a thousand ships
but was stifled and silenced
by a war fought wrongly in her honour.
