SUPER Mario Odyssey scores have been extremely positive, as fresh details emerge from a near-perfect Nintendo Switch review.
Super Mario Odyssey releases this Friday (10/27), and review scores are beginning to trickle in.
Super Mario Odyssey received a perfect score from Edge Magazine earlier this month, and an impressive 39/40 review score from Famitsu.
Fresh details have since emerged from the Famitsu review that appeared in the most recent issue.
The game received three perfect 10/10 scores and one 9/10 score from the Famitsu reviewers.
According to Nintendo Everything, the first 10/10 reviewer liked the fresh capture abilities, the Joy-Con controls and the way each stage is full of discoveries and surprise.
The second 10/10 review also praised the capture abilities, as well as the huge number of secrets and surprises that makes it worth exploring every corner of each stage.
This was echoed by the third person to award it a perfect 10/10. The critic praises the map design and the excellent way it balances comfort and originality.
The reviewer with the 9/10 score describes the 2D sections as original, and likes the way fans can keep playing thanks to features that are unlocked after clearing the game.
With the release date pencilled in for October 27, fans have discovered a hidden surprise in the boxed version of the game.
The boxed version of Super Mario Odyssey contains the lyrics to the game’s ‘Jump Up, Super Star’ theme song.
And that’s just one of many surprises in store for Super Mario fans this week.
The game also contains classic 2D platforming sections, and appearances from legendary characters such as Pauline.
Super Mario Odyssey also benefits from the latest Nintendo Switch system update.
Update 4.0.0 adds the ability to capture video, but only from select Nintendo Switch games.
This includes The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, ARMS, Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Super Mario Odyssey.
The update also includes a Super Mario Odyssey surprise or two, which is perfect if you want to update your Nintendo Switch profile.
