Super Mario 35th Anniversary

A lot more than just ports it seems. Merchandise, a Mario Kart you can literally play in your living room, collectibles, even a freaking Game and Watch with Super Marios Bros and Lost Levels on it!

That Mario Kart looks very interesting.

If I understood correctly both the digital and physical release of the Anniversary Collection will be limited. I really want a physical copy, just hope they aren't too limited.

I read it as available for six months and that's your lot rather than only so many made?

Edit- eurogamer does say limited supply of cartridges. How strange.

Scalpers on standby..........

Only the Mario kart thing was interesting

The Game and Watch thing, im going to mirror some of my comments on the GameGear Mirco
"Why not just have a load of games on it?" "Its a bit pointless, just a thing for collectors to bung in a display case and gather dust

No new Mario game, years after Odyssey. Maybe for the 40th? Is 35 years a big anniversary somehow?

Well you do get people posting "This <insert thing> was released 23 years ago today"
Treating it like its a big anniversary of it

Nintendo UK Store too, got my Game and Watch and Mario 3D All-stars ordered.

Rest can wait. £100 for Mario Kart and another £100 for Luigi? Yikes.

Pre ordered 3D All Stars for £43 from Shop To. If they intend this to be their major holiday release then the supply might not be that limited. Either way I'm just glad to have one reserved.

A little on the fence about the Game & Watch, leaning against it to be honest. It's a cool little thing though, especially for us retro nerds.

You can get something that looks almost the same that has a load of games on it for more than half the price.
Build quality might be worse but its one of those shelf items that you will play for a few minutes then plonk it on your shelf

I'd think that it's up there with the GameGear Micro in terms of useless novelties. Especially so, given that I've already got eight Nintendo-branded handhelds that I can play Super Mario on.

Ninten-do what Sega shouldn't have. :lol:

Well, if you never beat the Lost Levels, that will sink some time. And since its the original Famicon version, you need to beat it 8 times with no warp pipe short cuts in order to access worlds A-D to 100% complete it, so that'll probably be what most your time would go towards to get value for your money....unless you use it as an alarm clock too. :lol:

I'm assuming I'll be able to get Sunshine and Galaxy digitally for Switch.

It says in store/downloadable on the eShop page.

With the 'limited run' lasting six months I guess there's only going to be 5 million or so copies knocking about by the end of it.

Limited availability - Nintendo really know how to treat us don't they?

Looking at it, there seems to be something for everyone here. I like the idea of taking the 3D games on the move, but hope they tighten up a few of the bugs (like slipping through the boat on one Sunshine level). I don't know why Galaxy 2 wasn't included.

I'm really interested in SMB35 though. It seems a great tweak on the formula and mixing up classic levels. Tetris 99 has the same battle aspect, and it could potentially be played forever...if Nintendo let us.

As for the other bits, not really for me as I can see the Mario Kart one could cost a bomb. But a cool idea though!
