About Games Graded 9.9 A++
A grade that exists on the CGC scale but not in WATA’s rating system, games graded 9.9 A++ by CGC are seldom encountered. 9.9 A++ games are assessed as virtually perfect by CGC and if any defects exist at all they are so faint they are likely unseen by the naked eye.
About Super Mario Odyssey
Time and time again fans wonder aloud if Nintendo can bring forth another classic standalone Mario title, and as always, Nintendo delivers. Super Mario Odyssey is a classic entry in this storied franchise and then some, delivering an immensely deep game with new yet simple mechanics and loads of replayability. With a backstory similar to many Mario games – once again, Mario must save Princess Peach from the nefarious Bowser, a new sidekick Cappy joins the fray to the delight of fans. Allowing the player to control any character the hat is thrown on, Cappy gives life to one of Mario’s signature items, his iconic red hat. Within just three days of this title’s release in 2017, over 2 million copies were sold worldwide across digital and physical channels. Super Mario Odyssey would quickly go on to stand on its own among other “all-time” Mario titles and is considered one of the best games of all time, currently sitting as the third highest reviewed game ever on Metacritic.
With Super Mario Odyssey giving life to one of Mario’s signature items (Ok ok, we know it isn’t his real hat, but Cappy is a great stand in) and its fantastic gameplay this game is an historically important entry in the Mario franchise. A high-grade sealed copy of Super Mario Odyssey would fit nicely into a “best of” Switch game collection, among a vertical of Mario games, or simply as a superb display piece for Nintendo Switch lovers.
