Cartoon violence and comic mischief detailed for Super Mario Odyssey

The Entertainment Software Rating Board has revealed its summary for Super Mario Odyssey. The platforming game ended up with a E10+ rating due to cartoon violence and comic mischief. You can find the full ESRB description for the latest Mario videogame below:

This is an action platformer in which players assume the role of Mario as he embarks on a quest to rescue a princesses from the villain Bowser. As players run and jump through themed 3D environments, they can hop on enemies’ heads and/or use a cap to defeat them. Most characters react to damage with blinking effects, comical yelps, cowering gestures, or by turning into coins. During one boss encounter, players can capture a “cartoony” tank and fire cannonballs at a mechanical boss; large explosions are depicted as the boss is defeated. In another sequence, Mario lands several punches against a boss character; action is highlighted by impact sounds and screen-shaking effects. In a lunch-themed level, a giant bird-like creature spits out a trail of pink soup (and other food items) towards the player.

Super Mario Odyssey will be released on the 27th of October in North America. If you are interested, you can preorder the Nintendo Switch exclusive platforming game with this link on Amazon.
