If you’re anything like me, landing in Bonneton for the first time and taking in its foggy, moonlit atmosphere was a highlight of Super Mario Odyssey. Drawing you into its world and just how distinct kingdoms could be compared to Mario’s usual stomping grounds, I explored every last inch of it I could right away. With this newest concept art to come to light, I’m getting those feelings all over again.

 

 
It’s the little details that really make this, though. Apparently, the grass was inspired by hat felt to really drive that motif already seen in the lights, buildings, and citizens. The color choice, on the other hand, was meant to bring out the moon, making for a great visual and setting the stage for the later parts of the game.

Be on the lookout for more Odyssey art, both of the concept and hint varieties, as Nintendo continues to show off one of its finest games.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
