Nintendo Reveals Super Mario 3D All-Stars Remaster Collection, Launching This Month

Nintendo finally reveals the long-rumored collection.

After being heavily rumored for what feels like most of this year, Nintendo finally revealed Super Mario 3D All-Stars today. A surprise Nintendo Direct revealed the remastered collection of Mario games.

Super Mario 3D All-Stars includes the remastered Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy. The collection launches for the Switch on September 18, but there's no information on pricing as of right now.

Oddly enough, the collection will only be available for a limited time. You'll only be able to purchase the 3D All-Stars collection until March 31, 2021, both digitally and physically. Limited production is the reason for the finite availability, according to Nintendo, but it's still a bit of an unusual thing.

You'll likely remember that rumors first started circulating of Super Mario remasters earlier this year. Near the end of March, a report alleged that Nintendo was preparing to release multiple Mario ports to the Nintendo Switch later in 2020, as part of the Super Mario Bros. 35th anniversary.

This report was then backed up by several other corroborating reports, which said that Nintendo was also preparing to release a new Paper Mario in 2020 (which has come to pass with The Origami King). Elsewhere in the year of Mario is the planned opening of Super Nintendo World, a theme park in Japan which was originally slated to open in Spring 2020. Although the opening has been indefinitely delayed, we've glimpsed several details of the park, including a Mario Kart-themed area.

Super Mario 3D All-Stars effectively closes out Nintendo's plans for the remainder of 2020. According to a recent report, Nintendo is seemingly more than willing to cede late 2020 to the launches of the PS5 and Xbox Series X and plans to launch multiple new games in early 2021, as well as a more powerful Nintendo Switch.
