Nintendo Announces Final Shipment of Super Mario All-Stars 25th Anniversary Edition
Nintendo’s celebration of Super Mario Bros’ 25th birthday left as many (and maybe more) faces sour as they did smiling, especially with the culmination of all the celebration in a 15 year old package.

Go buy it if you haven’t already, as it may be worth something in the future!
