Mario has come a long way from his 8-bit origins. Since making the leap into 3D, Nintendo’s mascot has toured the universe and elsewhere. With ‘Super Mario Odyssey’ on the horizon, this Broadway-inspired commercial urges us to “do the Odyssey”.

Set in the game’s New Donk City level, Partizan’s Warren Fu blends live-action and CG to jolly effect. Promo specialist Fu handles a sizable cast - he even coaxes a sprightly performance from the venerable plumber.

The game’s theme song delivers, too. ‘Jump Up, Super Star!’ conveys the title’s sandbox freedom with toe-tapping charm. Amidst autumn’s glut of first-person shooters and adults-only fare, Nintendo’s flagship platformer offers pure escapism.
