Nintendo officially announces Super Mario 3D All-Stars

Three classic Super Mario-titles in a limited package.

Nintendo finally shared the announcement that many of us have been waiting for at today's Nintendo Direct: Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy are coming to the Nintendo Switch in a pack called Super Mario 3D All-Stars. The release will be available in a limited amount of retail copies and will only be available until March 2021 digitally.

While these games are no remastered or remade version of the originals, they will be enjoying several optimizations for the Nintendo Switch, such as higher resolutions and new control schemes to fit the joy-cons. Additionally, Super Mario 3D All-Stars will include a music player in-game that will give players the option to listen to any of the soundtracks from the three titles, with the option of turning off your screen.

Strangely enough, Nintendo decided to go for a 'limited availability'-plan, with the retail copies being limited in production, and its digital version will be available until March 31, 2021. Looks like eBay will soon be filled with overpriced copies in no-time, purely purchased by those people to resell at ridiculous prices.

The announcement brought forth mixed feelings amongst fans, where many were hoping for increased visuals or even remakes, as opposed to a basic port with enhancements for controls and a higher resolution. Other fans are ecstatic about the three games making their way to Nintendo Switch, and so are we!

Check out the trailer below and let us know whether you are excited or disappointed.
