EDGE Gives Super Mario Odyssey A Perfect Score

It’s crazy to see how many fantastic games have come out for the Nintendo Switch and it hasn’t even been out a year yet. From the amazing launch with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to great games like Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle and a slew of smaller indie games, the Switch’s library has ballooned into something truly special.

Now we have our first review of Super Mario Odyssey and it comes from EDGE magazine. They are notoriously harsh critics, giving only 19 games a perfect 10 over the lifespan of the periodical, which launched way back in 1993. Now Mario’s latest adventure marks the twentieth game to receive the honor. We’re excited to get our hands on the full game on October 27!
