It was clear from the beginning that Super Mario Odyssey was meant to be something very special. A successor to main of the best Mario games, and one that hasn’t gotten the credit it deserves in Super Mario Sunshine. Regardless, by the time the game hit the floor of E3, fans had an appreciation for Super Mario Odyssey that went beyond the game itself. Why? Because it had a theme song.

“Jump Up, Super Star!” felt like something Nintendo would do, and they executed it to perfection. It’s fast, it’s charming, and it has the perfect voice to go along with it. It filled the halls of E3 and it got everyone thinking they were back in the 20’s for the big band era. Yep, it was good…and then…today…Nintendo gave it a live-action music video! Yep, you heard me right, the hit song now has a music video that not only shows off the game but proves that Nintendo knows how to have fun like no other game company out there.

So check it out below, and see if you can dance to the beat that’s being sung. Super Mario Odyssey arrives on the Nintendo Switch on October 27th. That’s right, only two weeks away!
