According to a post published on via MarioOdysseyJP on Twitter, the new adventure of Nintendo Switch does not exist any “Game Over” screen and then it seems that the players will have unlimited lives.
As shown in short clip, however, it may incur a penalty like Mario losing 10 coins every time he “plunges to the depths.” Coins replace the traditional lives system of other Mario games. “No matter how many times he fails, there is no Game Over,” the tweet continues. Nintendo’s goal is precise to allow the player to roam without interruption in the universe of the new and highly anticipated Super Mario Odyssey.
Means that even if Mario has less than 10 coins in his possession, the player can still keep going without worrying about a complete game over. Yoshiaki Koizumi, the game’s producer to Polygon at E3 2017 also said: “We also wanted people to be able to, you know, you get into a kingdom and you can just kind of continually keep going through that kingdom without being pulled out, so that was why we kind of wanted to get rid of the lives idea.”
