To celebrate the 35th anniversary of the world’s most famous plumber, this morning at 9 am EDT, Nintendo released Super Mario Bros. 35th Anniversary Direct, a 16 minute video outlining future Mario titles to be released by Spring of 2021.
In less than 20 minutes, Nintendo announced the release of over 10 new products, ranging from games to events to physical items, and here they are.
GAME AND WATCH: SUPER MARIO BROS
A special, limited release Game and Watch system will be released on November 13. On it, you can play the original Super Mario Bros, as well as The Lost Levels and an updated Game and Watch balls with Mario as the titular character. In addition, in honor of Mario’s 35th, it comes with 35 extra touchups.
SUPER MARIO 3D WORLD + BOWSER’S FURY
Super Mario 3D World is coming to the Nintendo Switch with bonus content. In addition to the original game, this title will include a new section named “Boswer’s Fury.” All we know at this point is this section is set to contain new levels, but Nintendo has said they will provide updates closer to the release date, February 12, 2021
SUPER MARIO BROS 35
It’s the original title… now with up to 35 PLAYERS! The classic game has been reimagined as a battle royale where you compete with 34 others to be the last one standing. Among the many new mechanics is enemy swap, where a defeated enemy will reappear on another player’s screen, and vice versa. Releasing October 1, this title will be exclusive to Nintendo Switch Online Members and will only be available to play until March 31, 2021.
MARIO KART LIVE: HOME CIRCUIT
In the spirit of live interactive Mario accessories like LEGO Super Mario, Nintendo is releasing yet another real life interactive title, Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit. Players will receive a REAL remote control car they control with their Switch. As it moves around a pre-established playing space, it projects its surroundings onto your Switch or TV. You can still use items and be affected by hazards, and it will all show up on your screen, making your cars stop in real life. It releases October 16, and additional accessories are sold separately.
SUPER MARIO ALL STARS
The original 4 titles, Super Mario Bros, Super Mario Bros 2, Super Mario Bros 3, and Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels will be available later today on the SNES Nintendo Online Shop. These titles have been remastered with updated graphics and audio.
SUPER MARIO 3D ALL STARS
Hold onto your red M hats. Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, AND Super Mario Galaxy are coming to the Nintendo Switch! What’s more? These three titles are all in ONE GAME! These remastered versions have updated graphics, new optimizations, and their entire soundtracks will be available to listen in Music Player mode. Super Mario 3-D All Stars hits shelves September 18, and you can preorder it today!
In addition to all of these new games, Nintendo will also be hosting numerous events from now until March of 2021. These include a Super Smash Bros Ultimate tournament, a special Mario Kart Tour event with original Super Circuit Characters, Mario Themed Splatoon 2 maps, Mario styled furniture in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, real life products such as keychains and T-shirts, and more!
