Super Mario 3D All Stars finds a limited home on the Switch

Rumors have been flying for quite some time about an anniversary collection of Mario 3D classics in one Switch bundle. Today those rumors have been confirmed as Nintendo announced Super Mario 3D All Stars (following on from the SNES title of a similar name). Each game on this collection will be HD remastered. 3D All Stars will have a small physical release as well as wide digital availability but with a catch; you have until March 31st before it goes back into the Disney—I mean Nintendo—vault.

That’s right, you have around 5 months to purchase this classic collection before it disappears into the aether. I can’t think of a more Nintendo move than a limited availability on even the digital distribution of three beloved classics.

Much to the chagrin of Galaxy 2 fans, this collection will only have Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy. Make no mistake, these are three amazing titles and a perfect batch for a collection. While everyone wishes there were more, there isn’t. With a value of approximately $20 per game, it’s not a bad deal at all. If you’ve been dying to dive into some classics, this is the way to go. I’ll personally be picking this up even though I already own all three games. The portability of the Switch makes rebuying other games much more palatable.

The one downside is for Switch Lite owners. Due to the motion controls of the Wii’s Super Mario Galaxy, you will need a pair of detached joycons to play Galaxy. Gone are the dreams of playing this game with a pro-controller. I can’t say I’m surprised but it sucks there wasn’t a more viable solution than to “buy a set of joycons” for owners of the lite.

All in all, it will still be a great piece for a Switch collection despite the Nintendo weirdness. Buy it while you can on September 18th.
