We have the chance to learn more about New Donk City, with Super Mario Odyssey director Kenta Motokura taking time to talk about the moustachioed character’s globetrotting adventure.
“Mario’s latest odyssey of an adventure takes place in a world made up of many different kingdoms. You’ve heard a bit about the Sand Kingdom, but today I’d like to tell you a little bit about the Metro Kingdom, which is home to New Donk City, the cutting-edge, fast-paced city that never sleeps,” Motokura explains.
“This particular kingdom is overflowing with life and energy as people lounge in the park, taxis wind through the streets, and high-rise buildings soar into the sky.
“The inhabitants of this city are known as New Donkers, and they’re all well-known for their sharp sense of style. You won’t catch a New Donker out of a smart suit and hat! It comes off a bit formal, but trust me – they know how to party.
“If you keep your eyes peeled while exploring the city, you might even come across a certain New Donker you can capture! Like many New Donkers of late, this guy’s really into the sport of RC Car racing, so if you manage to capture him, you might just be able to give it a try yourself!
“By the way, here’s a handy hint if you’re looking for likely targets to capture – it’ll only work if they’re NOT already wearing a hat!
“I’m afraid that’s all I’ve got for you today, but I’ll see you next time around!”
Super Mario Odyssey will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide on October 27th.
