No matter which costume you decide to use to crash Bowser’s wedding at the end of Super Mario Odyssey, the giant lizard is not happy about it. However, depending on what you’re wearing, you may be treated to a unique line of dialogue as Bowser dresses Mario down for his choice of outfit.

It ‘s important to note that the following video by Youtuber Zephiel810 contains spoilers for the game. It doesn’t go beyond the introduction of the final boss, but does reveal the vast array of outfits that Mario can acquire throughout the game. If you haven’t beaten Odyssey yet, it may be better to skip this one.

If you do watch though, what you’ll see is Bowser’s response to every single costume that Mario can wear during the end boss fight.

Super Mario Odyssey - Bowser Reacts to All Mario Costumes

No matter which outfit you come sporting, Bowser begins his spiel with his signature laugh and the line, “Crashing the wedding, Mario? That’s tacky, even for you!” What follows though can be altered by Mario’s costume. If he’s wearing the invisibility hat, Bowser will say, “Huh? Where’d you go?”

He then follows it up with the standard response of, “Not that it matters, since you weren’t invited!” And this is followed by the zinger: “Now it’s time to make like a bouquet and get thrown out!”

Other outfits that can trigger a custom response from the big guy include Bowser’s tuxedo and the wedding dress. In the case of the latter, Bowser considers his mustachioed foe to be quite fetching in the white get up, and who wouldn’t agree with him? The floral and facial-hair combination is a sure-fire way to make a statement at any large gathering.

There are a few more outfits which share responses, where Bowser suggests Mario looks familiar, isn’t dressed fancily enough for the occasion, or is wearing a particularly scary outfit — apparently he’s not a fan of Mario donning a swimsuit to attend the nuptial ceremony. He’s not scared though. He wants that to be perfectly clear.

Giving Bowser a few custom responses at this stage in the game is a nice touch that makes the variety of potential outfits for Mario feel like a real part of the game world rather than just a reskin. It’s also a nice nod to other characters within the Mario universe, something that Odyssey does very well.

Stuck trying to beat Bowser no matter what outfit you wear? Here are some tips and tricks to help you out.

Nintendo introduces a new Super Smash Bros. Switch OLED for Black Friday
Super Smash Bros. Nintendo Switch OLED.

Nintendo unveiled all of the Black Friday deals and bundles it plans to offer in the coming weeks. These offerings are headlined by a brand new Nintendo Switch bundle with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate that has never been available before.
The Nintendo Switch -- OLED Model: Super Smash Bros. Ulitmate Bundle costs $350 and comes with a code for the fantastic 2018 crossover fighting game as well as three months of a Nintendo Switch Online Membership. The bundle's Joy-Cons feature a design based on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Unfortunately, this deal includes neither Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's Fighter Passes nor the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack. Nintendo says this bundle will be released on November 19, although they've already been spotted in some stores.
The other big new offering from Nintendo this holiday season is the Super Mario Party + Red & Blue Joy-Con Bundle. It costs $100 and includes a download code for Super Mario Party in addition to Red and Blue Joy-Con controllers. Keep in mind that this bundle includes 2018's Super Mario Party, not 2021's Mario Party Superstars, which remastered a lot of content from the series' older games.
Nintendo also plans to offer bundles that have been available before, like the Nintendo Switch Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Bundle and Animal Crossing: New Horizons Nintendo Switch Lite.
Various game discounts for Switch games will also go into effect on November 19. In terms of Nintendo-published games, people can expect Everybody 1-2-Switch! and Nintendo Switch Sports to be discounted by $10, titles like Luigi's Mansion 3, Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Xenoblade Chronicles 3 to have $20 discounts, and for Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe, Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze, Mario Strikers: Battle League, and Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes to all be available $30 cheaper than usual. Sadly, it does not look like Nintendo itself will offer any major deals surrounding this year's The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
All of these bundles and deals will become available on November 19.

Super Mario RPG is halfway between a remaster and remake
Mario, Mallow, Bowser, and Geno stare off-screen in Super Mario RPG.

Between The Super Mario Bros. Movie and Super Mario Bros. Wonder, it’s been a banner year for the Italian video game icon – and it’s not over yet. On November 17, Nintendo will cap off a successful 2023 with the hotly anticipated Super Mario RPG. The surprising release brings back one of the plumber’s most eccentric adventures, 1996’s Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars for the Super Nintendo. It’s a neglected cult classic that’s been long overdue for some attention.

The question, though, is what kind of treatment a title like that deserves. Should Nintendo simply have rereleased it on Switch Online? Would an HD remaster suffice? Or was a full remake in order? If the Switch version is any indication, Nintendo may have found itself a little stumped with that question too.
