As many Nintendo fans have no doubt found out, Mario is set to receive a host of new games to mark 35 years since his initial creation. One of the most notable inclusions is Super Mario 3D All-Stars for the Nintendo Switch, which is a collection of three classic titles — Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy. While not ground-up remakes, each remaster is said to be optimized for the hybrid console, which means higher resolutions, new screen ratios, and added Joy-Con support. Also included is an in-game music player which allows users to play 175 tracks from each game, even while their Switch console is turned off.

Pre-Order Now

What’s even better is the collection is out in just over two weeks on September 18. The downside is this is the lack of time players have to secure a copy. To add to the pressure, Nintendo has announced that the title is a limited-run until March 31, 2021. What this means is that the game is available both digitally and physically until then but after that, its future is unknown. This undoubtedly puts a lot of pressure on Nintendo fans, especially physical game collectors who want to secure a copy of the game for launch. Nintendo announced that the game will be up for pre-order from September 3. However, retailer information is scarce and Nintendo’s website simply states the information is coming soon. That doesn’t mean some retailers haven’t already put their orders up.

Due to the limited nature, people are often known to purchase multiple copies and reselling them at a higher rate once all stock is depleted. As a result, the limited-run has has ensured stock is in short supply, so getting that pre-order is vital for those who want a physical copy on release. Luckily, multiple outlets are still taking on pre-orders and are expected to arrive on release.
