Back in September of last year, Nintendo released Super Mario 3D All-Stars to celebrate the 35th anniversary of Super Mario Bros. This retro bundle for the Switch includes revamped versions of Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy. This was the first time these titles were 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.
Reviews for Super Mario 3D All-Stars were pretty positive across the board, which isn’t too surprising considering how well received the individual titles were during their individual release. The collection is a fantastic celebration of the 3D Mario titles, but like all parties, this celebration wasn’t meant to last. When the game was announced it was also announced that it’ll be discontinued at the end of March.
This article has been updated since its original publication.
When will Super Mario 3D All-Stars be discontinued?
Super Mario 3D All-Stars is a limited time release, with a set availability of six months. That means that Nintendo will no longer be supplying new copies of the game from March 31 (this goes for digital sales as well). You’ll still be able to buy the game off the shelf at your retailer of choice, but once those stores are sold out, the game is gone for good.
It’s a shame this is such a limited release, because Super Mario 64, Sunshine and Galaxy are all great games. You can probably pick up a second hand copy of the game later on, but there’s a good chance that scalpers will try to price gouge you.
Where can I buy 3D All-Stars?
Super Mario 3D All-Stars retails for $79.95, but you can save yourself some money depending on where you choose to buy it. You’ll find the cheapest copy of 3D All-Stars at Amazon, who are offering it for $62. After that, The Gamesmen have it for $68 while Mighty Ape and JB Hi-Fi are selling it for $69.
