Have you heard about “Super Mario Odyssey” yet?

Nintendo released a new trailer for its upcoming video game “Super Mario Odyssey” at the E3 Convention, which focuses on both video games and electronic devices.

The trailer, seen below, shows Mario on a 3-D adventure across multiple worlds as he seeks to rescue Princess Peach from the evil Bowser.

“Super Mario Odyssey” will be released on Oct. 27 of this year.

If you think this is another run-of-the-mill Super Mario game (like “Super Mario 64” or “Super Mario 3D World,”), you’re wrong.

This game will feature a co-op mode, which allows players to journey through Mario’s world together, according to video game news website Polygon. The second player will control a new character named Cappy, that looks a lot like a floating hat.

The game also brings gamers to entirely new landscapes, like New Donk City, a New York City knock-off with cabs, tall buildings and luscious parks, according to The Verge.

And while the game may feel familiar, The Verge reports that new challenges make it more difficult than previous Mario games.

“'Super Mario Odyssey' introduces new ideas and mechanics that seem like they will take some time to get used to, as they significantly alter a very familiar formula,” The Verge reported. “What is clear from even just a few moments, though, is that this is a game bursting with ideas, and one that brings back a style of game that Mario has been missing for years. 10 minutes in New Donk City isn’t enough.”
