Super Mario Odyssey Nets CERO B Rating


Bewilderment has spread across the internet over the reveal of Super Mario Odyssey‘s Japanese rating, with the consistently family-friendly franchise managing to obtain a Cero B rating (ages 12 and up) rather than the usual Cero A (for everyone) and causing many to begin theorizing as to what plumbing of the depths of depravity could have possibly brought on this change.

The U.S. and Europe have also gotten slightly higher ratings for the game (ESRB 10+ and PEGI 7 respectively), which are the highest that any main entry Mario game has ever received – a short description explaining Super Mario Odyssey’s western rating is available via the official ESRB website:


Various reasons as to why the rating has leveled up were concocted, from it being due to the nipple-exposed Mario, the citizens of the game’s “New Donk City” or just the comic mischief – many are doubting that this new rating will affect the game’s sales however, considering how many parents will buy Call of Duty and the like for their impressionable children.

Super Mario Odyssey will make its way to the Nintendo Switch on October 27th.

    Imagine the rating if the same game had princess in bikini, or better yet - without top and with nipples.

    In all seriousness and nipple humor aside, the ESRB always specifically states the reasons for their ratings in spoilery-indifferent fashion, so in this case the rating is most likely to Mario punching a boss violently. This counts as Cartoon Violence and is the same reason the many LEGO games of all things have the same E 10+ rating.

    That is none other than famed adult actor Ron Jeremy, illustrious star of both Super Hornio Bros 1 and 2, the Mario-pornos made around the time of the live-action Mario movie. They're most notable because after the failure of the Mario movie Nintendo, in their panic to protect their now-tarnished IP, literally bought the rights to both pornos so that they could prevent their release and subsequently buried them, making them exceptionally rare finds.

    So if you ever want some stupid trivia to bring up at the beer table, you can talk about how Nintendo purchased the rights to a pair of pornographic movies.

    I wonder if it is worth making some more porn parodies of Nintendo's games - with the aim of selling them to the Nintendo.

    When childhood and very adult memories collide. *shivers* I am going to sit fully clothed in the shower rocking back and forth for a couple hours now.

    The live action Mario was played by the late WWF wrestler Captain Lou Albano

    That's what you get for salami slice nipples. Expect Fucktendo to released a non-nipple version to lower the rating.

    It's pretty obvious that it's because of content like the graffiti in New Donk City and the shirtless outfit. Glad that Nintendo stuck to their vision for the game, despite the affect it had on the rating.
