Nintendo goes all-in on Super Mario for the holiday season

Nintendo has revealed its slate of holiday 2020 products, following deep delays of its plans due to the ongoing pandemic, with a raft of Mario-themed announcements overnight including classic game collections and new physical gadgets.

The Japanese gaming giant and its three-year-old Switch system will be up against brand new consoles from Sony and Microsoft in the lead up to Christmas this year, with Nintendo’s lineup of Super Mario 35th Anniversary items — headlined by a new collection of old games and a pair of augmented reality remote controlled cars — avoiding a direct competition by targeting lapsed and young gamers as well as dedicated players.

Releasing in two weeks on September 18, the new collection titled Super Mario 3D All-Stars packages together higher resolution and widescreen versions of Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy; originally playable on the Nintendo 64, GameCube and Wii respectively.

This will be a limited-time $80 release, with a small number of physical copies available and Nintendo claiming it will remove the collection from digital stores in March; presumably to be replaced by three standalone downloads.
