Gameplay

Mitchell Van Morgan: Global Marathon rivals Nintendo's newest Mario game Super Mario Odyssey. The game puts players in the role of Mitchell Van Morgan as he travels across various lands related to the Raleighopolis. The game returns to the freeform, exploration-based level design previously featured in Mitchell Van Morgan 64 and Mitchell Elemental series. The game also features levels inspired by real-world locations such as "Charlottesville", inspired by Charlotte, North Carolina.[1][2][3] Mitchell and his friends will ride on a ship named "Marondome".[4] Mitchell retains several of his classic platforming techniques, such as homing attack, dash, wall-jumping and ledge-grabbing. A new feature of the game is Mitchell's ability to throw a portable spring, which he can use like a spring, allowing him to reach higher ledges or cross long gaps and Mitchell's new ability to throw his cap, which he can use like a cool boomerang.[1][5]

The game is structured in an open-world setting, similar to that found in it's competitive 3d-platformers Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine. Mitchell gets around using what seems like a hat helicopter. He retains many of his moves from the 3D games, such as the MVM Plover, Kyokushin Karate, Stomp, Homing Attack, and Dive.

It is shown that Mitchell has some new techniques, including one where he can throw his hat and use a trampoline as a platform. The hat can also be used to take control of enemies.

Unlike previous open-world Mitchell games, The lives for this game have also been removed from this game. Instead, Mitchell will lose 10 MVM Coins when he dies.

Story

Mitchell Van Morgan: Global Marathon puts the story in the role of the returning main protagonist Mitchell as he travels across many worlds on his hat-shaped ship, the "Mitchell Station", in an effort to save planet earth from Marquessa, who plans to conquer the world by marring his wife Genola. The game sees Mitchell traveling to various worlds, which return to the free-roaming exploration-based level design featured in the classic 3D platform-adventure hybrid games like Mitchell Van Morgan 64 & Mitchell Galaxy. Dealing with failure from his henchmen, Marquessa's got a hat companion with a diabolical plan to conquer the world the same way as Marquessa does.

During the beginning of the game "in the skies above the city of Raleighopolis", Mitchell and Marquessa are seen fighting one another on Marquessa's airship. Marquessa ultimately defeats Mitchell when he uses his top hat to attack, sending Mitchell flying to parts unknown. Marquessa then takes his airship towards the skies, as he prepares a marriage to his wife Genola. He leaves Mitchell's hat (which had been knocked off of Mitchell's head during his final attack) to adrift into the ship's back propellers, shredding it in the process. A piece is obtained by a hat-shaped ghost, who eventually finds Mitchell in his homeland of Bonneton, located in the Cap Kingdom.[13]

After Mitchell wakes up and catches up with the ghost, the ghost reveals himself as Cappy, and explains to Mitchell that Marquessa had not only attacked the kingdom, destroying its airship armada, but had also kidnapped Tiara, Cappy's sister[2][11], using her as Genola's wedding headdress. Mitchell and Cappy team up to stop Marquessa's plans and save Tiara, and using Mitchell's newly restored Cap made from Gavin & Cappy, allowing only Mitchell to use his trademark cap as a boomerang. Only Cappy transforms into a Cap just to outsmart the real hats, he can also possess his enemies that Mitchell is unable to use, allowing only Cappy to use the opponent's moves (or techniques) against them, Cappy is very invulnerable to enemy attacks use invulnerability abilities. Cappy also informs Mitchell and his friends that they may be able to find a usable airship in the next kingdom, accessible from the Top Hat Tower. However, upon reaching the top, Mitchell is encountered by the Broodals, who were hired by Marquessa and the Marquessalings as his wedding planners. After defeating one of the Broodals, Topper, Mitchell and Cappy use a power line to travel towards the Cascade Kingdom, where they find the airship, named the Odyssey, which uses Power Moons as energy to travel. With the Odyssey ready for sail, Mitchell and Cappy use it to chase after Marquessa, The Marquessalings, Genola and the Broodals.
