Super Mario Odyssey Guide – How to unlock the Super Mario 64 costume

Super Mario Odyssey is out now. It’s an incredible game and it’s also huge. Not to worry though, we’ve got your back with a number of handy guides, tips and hints. If you’re a fan of nostalgia, then this guide is the one for you.

Light spoilers follow.

How to Unlock the Super Mario 64 costume

Super Mario Odyssey is the first Mario title to let players change the hero’s clothes. You can be a chef, pirate, topless, an astronaut, a cowboy and more. One of the most fun costumes though is the Super Mario 64 costume.

This makes Mario look exactly as he did in Super Mario 64, albeit in HD. Instead of the gorgeously rendered character seen on-screen for the duration of the game, the Super Mario 64 hat and clothes downscale him. He’s all blocky, flatly textured and looks hilariously out of place in the immaculately detailed Super Mario Odyssey.

To unlock the costume, you’ll need to complete the story and be able to travel to the Mushroom Kingdom. You’ll need to collect 20 special Mushroom Kingdom coins and head to Crazy Cap. The Crazy Cap in the Mushroom Kingdom is right near the Odyssey, just next to the fountain.

Speak to the Special Coin salesman and you’ll be able to buy the Super Mario 64 hat for 5 coins and the Super Mario 64 clothes for 15. Once you put them on, you won’t want to take them off.

PowerUp! has been incredibly fortunate to have received a copy of Super Mario Odyssey ahead of release. We’ve managed to play through and finish the game and have prepared a number of guides. Some of these guides are a work in progress as Super Mario Odyssey is enormous.

Please check back regularly to get all the latest updates to all our Super Mario Odyssey Guide.

Super Mario Odyssey was provided to PowerUp! by Nintendo.
