Super Mario Odyssey Jump-Rope Glitch Uses Talkatoo To Score 99,999

A glitch discovered in the latest Mario game for Nintendo Switch is breaking the high score leaderboard.


You can now hold the Jump-Rope record in Super Mario Odyssey if you happen to have sixteen hours of free time and a Nintendo Switch. Glitchers have discovered a new bug in the latest Mario game that allows players to float in the air while they set a Jump-Rope record. This has thrown the global leaderboard in New Donk City out of whack, but you probably want to know how to join in on the fun. Here is how to Jump Up, Superstar.

To unlock the Talkatoo camera glitch, players need to throw Cappy at the bird and hit the A button as it strikes the back of its head. Then roll away without looking at Talkatoo. Once situated in the Jump-Rope challenge, do a few butt stomps and turn to look at Talkatoo to activate the camera glitch. Mario will be stuck levitated in mid air.

If you plan to hit the maximum score of 99,999 jumps, plan on leaving your Nintendo Switch on for about sixteen hours. This is clearly a glitch, and it remains to be seen how Nintendo will handle this on the Super Mario Odyssey global leaderboard. For now, the glitch is alive and well. Head on over to New Donk City if you want to do it for Shacknews.

          No, but there is a global leaderboard for it.

            The leaderboard was ruined within days anyway. You could pretty trivially hit the score cap with a button pressing bot on a set interval once it reaches max speed.

        Have they ever patched a non-competitive glitch? Not including bugs that cause problems mind you.

        Unlike Blizzard mind you, who sees somebody beating Diablo 3 Inferno too quickly and does a quick patches and boots them before they can finish. Not that Diablo 3 didn't ship with a shit ton of other stuff that needed to be patched.

        Or Sony who killed a raid in Everquest to keep them from beating a boss that wasn't intended to be beaten.
