Super Mario Odyssey is out today

Probably the single most anticipated title for the Nintendo Switch by a country mile, that famous plumber returns in Super Mario Odyssey – which just happens to be available today.

The review embargo was lifted as of this morning and as we don’t have a copy (as yet) here’s what everyone else is saying about it.


Daniel Vuckovic @ 5/5

Super Mario Odyssey is a wonder and shows everyone why Mario is still king.


Shannon Grixti @ Press Start: 10/10

I don’t know how Nintendo continues to do it, but they’ve managed to reinvent another classic franchise and push it further than imaginable. Super Mario Odyssey is the game that we’ve been waiting to play for more than 20 years.


 Philip Kollar and Allegra Frank @ Polygon: 9.5/10

…it’s no surprise that Super Mario Odyssey is, yes, a great game. But more than that, it’s a fantastic, even fundamental addition to Mario’s legacy.


Alex Donaldson @ VG 24/7:

Super Mario Odyssey is the best of the 3D Super Mario titles and a Game of the Year contender in a properly stacked year. It’s difficult to believe one company has put out both this and the also all-time-great Breath of the Wild in one year, but here we are.
