Super Mario Odyssey has arguably been Nintendo's crowning glory at this year's E3, as you'll know if you've read our glowing and detail-rich preview from the show floor.

The latest entry in the long-running Super Mario series, Odyssey is shaping up to be the plumber's most impressive and feature-rich yet, and just in case you're not excited enough already, Nintendo has published a special developer diary with the game's director, Kenta Motokura.

In the footage, Motokura goes into detail regarding the game's story, Mario's new abilities and even how amiibo will be used in the game. As well as the three new Mario, Peach and Bowser figures - all dressed in wedding outfits - Motokura confirms that all existing amiibo will have some functionality in the game.

Super Mario Odyssey launches on Switch this October. The wait is already killing us.
