Look out Link – Super Mario is returned today and poised to challenge for the Game of the Year title that seemed to be safely locked around The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s waist. Reviews for Super Mario Odyssey have been pouring in today, and they’re not unlike the type of reviews that Breath of the Wild garnered upon its release – namely that it’s a breath of fresh air into the series and a modern masterpiece.

Rarely have big title entries in both the The Legend of Zelda series and Super Mario series came out in the same year, so it should he interesting to see which game can come away with Game of the Year honors from Nintendo fans and publications alike.

Super Mario Odyssey is out October 27th, while The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is scheduled to receive it’s second batch of DLC, The Champions’ Ballad, in winter 2017.
