Nintendo is about to honor their flagship mascot in a big way, as the very popular “Super Mario Bros.” franchise is celebrating its 35th Anniversary this September — and he’s getting a handful of new games, products, and in-game events coming up to tie in with that celebration!
Announced via a special Super Mario Bros. 35th Anniversary Direct video released today, Nintendo is planning on releasing some awesome new Mario content to celebrate the plumber hero of the Mushroom Kingdom — including a sweet “Super Mario 3D All-Stars” collection that includes optimized versions of classics like “Super Mario 64”, “Super Mario Sunshine”, and “Super Mario Galaxy” for the Nintendo Switch! Other noteworthy announcements are “Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit”, a special “Game and Watch: Super Mario Bros.” collectible device, an enhanced version of “Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury” for Switch, and the classic “Super Mario All-Stars” joining the Nintendo Switch Online Catalog. Oh, and there’s a special version of the original game that started it all with “Super Mario Bros. 35” — an online battle game that pits players against one another to prove who’s the best Mario player, and that arrives on October 1 exclusively for Nintendo Switch Online members!
