The hat strikes back – Cappy can kill Mario in Odyssey

If the Goomba fears Mario, does Mario have to fear his hat?

An interesting glitch found by Twitter user DefinitivNichtSacha allows Cappy to take down our favourite video game plumber in Odyssey:

Simply capture a Piranha Plant after you’ve fed it a rock in two-player mode. After that order Cappy to attack it and it will kill the plant and Mario too! You have to reload to get the good sir back.

It is unlikely Nintendo would willingly kill off its title character, though they haven’t announced a patch as of yet or really even spoken about the issue.

Maybe it’s finally Luigi’s turn to take over?… Or they are currently working on a fix – seems more likely somehow.
