In March, a rumor swirled that Nintendo had some huge plans for 2020 regarding Super Mario. One of those rumors included a new Paper Mario game, which we got with Paper Mario: The Origami King. The other half of that rumor was that Nintendo would be rereleasing Super Mario 64, Sunshine and Galaxy.
Today, that rumor was confirmed when Nintendo streamed a Nintendo Direct that announced a limited release of the three classic Super Mario titles, along with a rerelease of Super Mario 3D World that includes a mysterious new addition called “Bowser’s Fury,” a semi-IRL Mario Kart game called Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit and a Battle Royale version of the original Super Mario Bros. There are also neat Mario-themed tidbits announced for other games as well as some merchandising partnerships.
The collection of classic 3D Mario games, dubbed Super Mario 3D All-Stars, will release September 18th. Curiously, the games are being released in a limited-edition run and will be removed from stores at the end of March next year.
