To celebrate the 35th anniversary of Super Mario Bros., Nintendo have announced one hell of a retro collection. The Super Mario 3D All-Stars bundle includes revamped versions of Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy.
This is the first time these titles are available to play on the Switch, and the first time Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy have been available to play outside of their original consoles.
Super Mario 3D All-Stars will be dropping later this month on 18 September, and will be available to purchase until the end of March 2021.
Where can I pre-order it?
Super Mario 3D All-Stars will retail for $79.95, but you can save yourself around $10 depending on where you choose to pre-order it.
You’ll find the cheapest copy of Super Mario 3D All-Stars at Amazon, Mighty Ape, JB Hi-Fi and The Gamesmen, who are all offering the bundle for $69. The former three are also promising pre-order price guarantees, so you’ll only have to pay the lowest price if the price drops before the day of release.
Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit
Super Mario 3D All-Stars wasn’t the only thing Nintendo announced during the anniversary Direct. Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit combines remote-controlled cars with an augmented reality experience to create a new kind of Mario Kart game. You’ll need a Switch or Switch Lite to play it.
If Mario isn’t your guy, there’s also a Luigi set available for pre-order.
Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros.
Nintendo also announced a cool Game & Watch throwback. This handheld comes preloaded with the original Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, a Mario-themed version of the original Game & Watch title Ball, and, most importantly, a digital clock.
This Game & Watch is due to release November 13 and will cost you $79.95. Unfortunately, it looks like most pre-orders have sold out. I smell another NES Mini situation.
