Turns out Talkatoos are even more helpful than we thought.
A glitch has been discovered that allows players to get absurdly high scores in Super Mario Odyssey’s jump-rope challenge.
Kotaku reports that a newly discovered glitch has the leaderboard filled with scores all the way up to 99,999. This method has been dubbed the “Talkatoo glitch” as it uses the helpful bird close to the jump-rope challenge to cause the camera to freeze and suspend animations.
To get the glitch to work, players throw Cappy at the bird and talk to him just before Cappy reaches his mark, which eventually leads to Mario frozen in place as the rope moves cleanly around him.
Played as intended, the jump-rope mini game consists of a challenge which sees how many times the players can successfully jump over the rope, with the Jump Rope Hero Power Moon available at 30 jumps in a row and Jump Rope Genius awarded at 100 jumps. You can check out your score (as well as the scores of your friends and players worldwide) on a nearby leaderboard.
