Nintendo Switch fans will be pleased to hear that the first Super Mario Odyssey review has gone live.And the good news is that EDGE magazine absolutely loves the next big Nintendo Switch exclusive, awarding Super Mario Odyssey a perfect 10 review score.The review says that Super Mario Odyssey takes risks with an established formula, and that these risks pay off handsomely.

It concludes by saying that while Mario might be getting on a bit, Odyssey proves that he’s no dinosaur.

EDGE isn’t known for dishing out perfect scores very often, having awarded fewer than 20 in its more than 20 year history.

However, it’s not the first Mario game to receive a perfect score, with Mario 64 and both Galaxy games getting 10 out of 10.

Part of its appeal is that Super Mario Odyssey contains an old-school surprise or two.With the release date just a few weeks away, the brand new Super Mario Odyssey trailer reveals everything you need to know about the upcoming Nintendo Switch exclusive.Towards the end of the trailer, Mario is shown navigating a construction site while avoiding barrels and collecting coins.

This Donkey Kong surprise is set against the backdrop of New Donk City, which is where Pauline resides as Mayor.

Retro gaming fans will recall that Pauline was captured by Donkey Kong in the classic arcade game.

The new trailer – which can be seen below – also gives fans a look at some of the things Mario can capture with Cappy. This includes a tank, Bullet Bills, Cheep Cheeps and lowly Goombas.

Express Online recently went hands-on with Super Mario Odyssey and preview some of the new game worlds, including the Cap Kingdom, Luncheon Kingdom and Seaside Kingdom.

And it’s in the Seaside Kingdom where one of the best Super Mario boss fights of all time takes place.

It all revolves around a giant octopus that has bottled up the kingdom’s famous sparkle water.

The battle takes place over the entire stage and requires Mario to capture the local wildlife to succeed.
