    Super Mario Odyssey will receive an "E10+" rating by the ESRB, as confirmed by Nintendo's listing for Super Mario Odyssey on their official website. This is the first time a main-series Mario game has received a rating higher than "E".

    I blame the normal looking humans, too edgy for Mario. Plus Bowser seemingly wanting to marry Peach, bestiality, ew.

    If we're being real it's probably because of the possession thing

    Rated M Zelda, when?

    Anyway, most people are going to just ignore that rating. Even if it was rated for teens, people would buy it just the same, as if the rating never changed.

    Oh, a rating. Lol I mean yeah that is a interesting note, but so is super smash bros brawl rated T 14+ And nintendo made other games with higher ratings before right?

    Can we consider this mainline mario game? Cause I mean there is many mario games, which is main line? Super mario bros? You know the original 2 player game with luigi? It wasn't until some games that started being single player only like Yoshi island, and even though it has Super mario world 2 in the title, is it part of mario or yoshi series? So who consider this main line?

    By main-line, I mean the ones that are pure platformers. The "Super Mario" series. That would be Mario 64, Sunshine, Galaxy 1/2, New Super Mario Bros. /2, Super Mario 3D Land/World, etc.

    EDIT: Here's a list: https://www.mariowiki.com/Super_Mario_(series)#Main_games

    It's the first time one of the main "Super Mario" platformers was given a rating above "E."

    Related to this subject, something has always bothered me: Donkey Kong 64 is rated E and has in the intro, the DK rap which includes the word 'hell.' While Super Smash Bros Melee was rated Teen and includes a cover of the DK rap, yet the word Hell was changed to Heck... so seriously, what's the logic here? This had for years boggled my mind and I really can't find any good reasoning for this.

    Because it's Nintendo, they censored their own games numerous times, like Metroid Prime 3 and changed "damn" to "darn". Same with Mega Man 7 and Breath of Fire 2, both featured the word "damn", but have gone back and edited them.

    PEGI rated it 7+, which is also higher than the usual 3+ rating.

    Yes, but why wasn't DK64 forced to say Heck from the start? Why was DK64 able to be rated E with the word Hell, if Hell is an E word, why censor it in a T game? Just doesn't make sense, even understanding Nintendo's logic.
