Over 3000 years ago, a man named Homer wrote “It is hateful to me to tell a story over again, when it has been well told” in his book The Odyssey. The story of Mario, Bowser and Princess Peach has been well told, multiple times, over the last 30 years. On October 27, we get to hear that story again.
If you're looking for a copy of Super Mario Odyssey this is where you can find the absolute cheapest copies in Australia.
Jump up, Super Star!
This is the one I’ve been waiting for, a game where an overall-clad plumber-racer-golfer and his sentient mind-controlling hat go on an adventure around the universe in a spaceship visiting exotic locales and getting into togs.
Whoa. That sounds insane.
Will it dethrone Breath of the Wild as the best Switch game? I’m not sure, but here’s hoping.
Let’s check those prices.
Courtesy of our friends at Vooks, Big W are coming in with that lava-hot introductory price of $62 so you can spend big on DLC down the track. Unfortunately not stocking
This price is in-store, but if you want delivery just tack on a reg-latte ($3.50) and you’ll get it to your door. Don’t forget – they will price match in store too, so grab it for $62
Gerry! Gerry! Gerry! Gerry!
My final thought: Sometimes a price comes along that is both fair and profitable for a large-scale retail organisation. This is one of those times. Take care.
Gamesmen are running with the same price as basically everywhere else. Good.
Have to tack on the added cost of shipping which pushes this up around the $73 mark, but still good value if you're happy to wait. Express delivery will set you back about $77.
More expensive than previously listed by 99 cents, but free delivery. Still a great price, but I mean, ****, it’s 99 cents?!
As usual, Play-Asia is pricier but the major benefit is that it’s real useful if you’re looking for other language versions of the game, for whatever reason.
At this point, I don’t know why you’d turn up to EB Games without a solid price match deal floating around your brain.
This is Gametraders online store price. This is not a very good price. It’s also out of stock.
The Nintendo Switch is region-free, so in theory, if a cheaper price (with currency conversion) arises elsewhere in the world, you will be able to log in to that region's eShop and download Odyssey there. As it stands, you'd be looking at $70+, with the Japanese eShop price hovering around $73. Not bad for a digital copy.
In AUD, the eShop price is still to be confirmed.
Super Mario Odyssey launches digitally and in stores next Friday, October 27, for the Nintendo Switch. We'll update this post should any better prices come along!
