Super Mario Odyssey is a beautiful game. It was almost two years ago that Mario's latest 3D adventure found its way to our screens, bookending a year which started with the similarly wonderful Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and loading it up now after all this time never fails to surprise us. Each time we see it, we're blown away.

As it turns out, there's a way to make it look even better, and that way is to put it in the hands of a professional photographer. Dan Cordero says that he's spent six months with the game's Snapshot mode - a function which allows you to pause the game, move the camera around, add filters, and more before taking your perfect screenshot - and has shared the results online for all to see. We've included some of our favourites below, but you absolutely must go and check out the entire collection.

Not only does it show off Cordero's amazing skills, but it also shows a completely different way to have fun with Super Mario Odyssey. We've got to say, seeing all these images is making us want to go and revisit the game to search for amazing photo opportunities for ourselves. What serves as a platforming playground for some doubles up as a piece of pure art for others, and we think that's pretty neat.
