Edge Magazine Reportedly Gives Super Mario Odyssey a Perfect Score

Mario's odyssey offers top-tier amenities.

In the wee hours of this very morning, gaming magazine Edge tweeted the latest issue is being slightly delayed "to accommodate an exclusive embargo."

It seems the embargo is for the highly-anticipated Super Mario Odyssey on the Nintendo Switch—which, according to a few subscribers who have in fact netted the latest issue of the magazine, received a perfect 10 out of 10.

"JPickford," a member of rllmukforum.com's message boards, posted a snap of the review. It's indeed a 10, and though we can't see too much of the review's text, there are definite words of phrase. It appears Edge is happy with how Super Mario Odyssey's risks pay off and keep Mario feeling fresh and new despite his age.

Unless we're holding the real McCoy in our hands, it's prudent to point out something like this can be photoshopped—but given Edge's own announcement of an exclusive embargo and Mario Odyssey's impending release date, it's more likely Edge is simply very fond of Nintendo's latest Mario game.

Edge doesn't give out 10's very often. The last game to get the elusive stamp was The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and before that was 2015's Bloodborne.

Super Mario Odyssey is coming to the Switch on October 27. Look forward to USgamer's review soon!
