“It's the views that make Seaside Kingdom so special.”
Bubblainian, Super Mario Odyssey

The Seaside Kingdom is a beach kingdom that appears in Super Mario Odyssey, being either the ninth or tenth kingdom visited, depending on whether the player chooses to go here or to the Snow Kingdom after leaving the Metro Kingdom. It is the greater location of Bubblaine, a cliffside beach resort area. Due to the local inhabitants being beret-clad snails, the boss having a French name, and two of the missions having a French title, the location may have been partially or fully inspired by France, most likely the Côte d'Azur, also known as the French Riviera. When Mario first arrives, Mollusque-Lanceur is sitting on top of the Glass Tower drinking all of the Sparkle Water, and the fountains are corked. To restore peace to the kingdom, Mario must uncork the fountains and defeat Mollusque-Lanceur.

It is daytime during Mollusque-Lanceur's attack on the kingdom. Once he is defeated, the time of day changes to dusk for the rest of the game.

Brochure details[edit]

The Glass Tower shines in the setting sun.

Raise a Glass[edit]

The spectacle known as Glass Tower isn't just majestic, it also fulfills the critical role of manufacturing the famous local product Sparkle Water.

It stands atop the Glass Palace, which has a uniquely beautiful architectural style. It's a treasure to be explored!

Behold, the power of carbonation!

A Miraculous Mixture[edit]

The four fountains in Bubblaine spray seawater toward the Glass Tower. The ocean here is carbonated but otherwise unremarkable. However, when blended in the Glass Tower, it takes on a deep, elegant flavor and becomes Sparkle Water!

This treasured beverage is said to bring good fortune, happiness, and even romance to those who drink it, which has led to it being featured in many wedding ceremonies.

A Love Nest for Eels[edit]

In addition to the fun resort spots found in Bubblaine, there are some notable dangerous locations as well. One of these is the underwater cave connected to the lighthouse where gigantic creatures called Maw-Rays make their nests and shoot out their long bodies in response to stimuli. A little caution can go a long way when exploring this place.

Deep enough for a full-body soak.

Nature's Hot Tub[edit]

A ways away from the beach sits an outdoor bath fed by a natural hot spring. Featuring full ocean views, it has become quite popular with tourists. This spring was formed by volcanic activity on the ocean floor, and it's said to have numerous medicinal effects. Take one dip, and we're sure you'll fall for its charms. It's also a lovely natural reprieve from the modern resort developments.

Relaxing Competition[edit]

When in Bubblaine, be sure to enjoy a game of beach volleyball on the local court. The on-site coach gives strong guidance, even for beginners. As they say around here, "Let's play!"

Nature's Fire Hoses[edit]

These unusual creatures collect seawater constantly. They use this water both to defend themselves and to propel themselves, sometimes straight up!

The player can also collect a Power Moon if they travel to this kingdom using a painting found in a future kingdom (either the Mushroom Kingdom or Bowser's Kingdom). After the player defeats Bowser in the Moon Kingdom, 2 more Power Moons become available to collect.
