I’m playing Super Mario Odyssey and have beaten Bowser, and am now returning to the various kingdoms. I left Metro Kingdom after unlocking the band since I could not enter the pipe for the Festival.
Returning, I still cannot enter. I leave Mario’s ship, enter the pipe on the platform that enters a 2D area with a pipe directly above. In all YouTube walkthroughs, players simply jump to enter the pipe above. However, when I jump, it acts as a barrier: I cannot enter.
You can see the section at 27:00 in this YouTube video:
Here is a screenshot from that video showing Mario jumping, about to enter the pipe above his head. It’s this pipe I can’t get into.
I have tried:
Jumping in many ways - the Y button, flicking the controller, moving around the small 2D area
Wearing the pinstripe suit and hat, in case it was a prerequisite for entering this stage of New Donk City
I have version 1.0.1. Running software update tells me there are no updates.
