In November of this year you can expect a special Mario related version of the classic Game & Watch handheld. Then we had Super Mario World 3D, which is coming to the Switch next year with new content called Bowser’s Fury.
Super Mario 35 is a redo of Super Mario but with a Tetris 99 twist, and then there was Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, a set of RC Mario Kart toys that involve control using a Nintendo Switch.
There was some Mario tie-in merchandise that flew by, but more importantly was the announcment that Super Mario All Stars will be available for download on the Super NES online collection today for anyone with a Nintendo Switch online subscription.
The biggest news was left for last though with confirmation of the long rumoured Super Mario 3D All Stars, a collection of Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy. Even more surprisingly, Super Mario 3D All Stars is releasing on September 18th, 2020.
