Sunshine’s FLUDD Device Is Added to Super Mario Odyssey in a Mod
Fans of Super Mario Odyssey may be interested in discovering new ways to play the game five years after its debut, and a new mod that incorporates the FLUDD gadget from Super Mario Sunshine into the equation accomplishes exactly that. One of the reasons Mario Odyssey has received so much praise is the diversity of Mario’s move set and the vast possibility for interesting platforming it offers, but as this mod demonstrates, there’s still a place for some of Mario’s more famous tricks.
Super Mario Sunshine, released in 2002 for the Nintendo GameCube, is an outlier among Mario’s mainstream platformers. The game has a tropical atmosphere overall, the primary goal is to clear up strange sludge, and Mario wears a robotic water-shooting backpack throughout the trip. The Flash Liquidizer Ultra Dousing Device, or FLUDD, is Mario’s friend in the same manner as Cappy was in Mario Odyssey, and it, like Cappy, gives a variety of skills unique to Sunshine, as its varied nozzles enable players to fly for a brief period, leap extra high, or dash at high speeds.
