The festivities for Super Mario Bros. 35th anniversary have finally kicked off, and one of the biggest announcements of the day was Super Mario 3D All-Stars. The upcoming compilation will be launching on September 18. Here’s the trailer:

Here are the games in the collection:

  • Super Mario 64
  • Super Mario Sunshine
  • Super Mario Galaxy

Nintendo says the following about the game:

“Optimized versions of 3D Mario games Super Mario 64Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy are coming to Nintendo Switch in one package. In addition to having higher resolutions than their original versions, the games have been optimized for a smooth gameplay experience on Nintendo Switch. Super Mario 3D All-Stars also includes an in-game music-player mode to play the music and songs from all three games. Players can also listen to music on their Nintendo Switch systems when the screen is off. A limited production of Super Mario 3D All-Stars launches exclusively for the Nintendo Switch family of systems on Sept. 18 and will be available until approximately March 31, 2021.”

A couple details to round things off: first, preorders are live for both the digital and physical versions of 3D All-Stars. However, if you’re interested in a physical copy you’re going to want to act quickly as these are going to be in limited quantities. Also, the game is only going to be available for a limited time, with a tentative cutoff being listed as around March 31, 2021. It’s an odd limitation but one that makes sense considering Nintendo’s propensity for subscription models for its retro games.

Are you pumped for this compilation? Which version(s) will you be buying? Tell us in the comments and on social media!
