There are a lot of NPCs in Super Mario Odyssey. How many are there throughout the game which you can interact with (i.e. press A to open a dialogue)?
I am counting NPCs who start minigames, who work at the Crazy Cap shop, and who you can interact with at one point in the game but can’t later.
(Like Princess Peach.)
Does anyone have a tally of how many NPCs fit these criteria?
