The Super Mario Collection Amiibo may have sold out on Amazon.com, but Amazon UK has just listed them for pre-order. They’re all available while I type, so be sure to get a pre-order in if you’re thinking of adding them to your collection. They’re retailing for the recommended retail price of £10.99.
Well that didn’t last long, as the Super Mario Collection Amiibo figures have already sold out on Amazon.com. The pre-orders for the figures went live last night and have subsequently sold out. Let’s hope that Amazon gets more stock in to deal with the demand, otherwise there will be a few angry Nintendo fans who missed out.
Thanks, Sean and Lord Zedd

It’s been revealed that the forthcoming Super Mario Collection is in fact just a rehashed version of the Super Nintendo classic Super Mario All-Stars.
Whilst it was initially thought that it may contain graphically revised editions of the NES and Super Nintendo classics recent screen shots suggest it’s just a simple port.
Still there’s plenty of reasons to purchase it as it comes with a soundtrack CD that covers the entire Mario series and it also comes with a lavish booklet that showcases rare and unreleased artwork.
Popular online retailer PlayAsia have revealed some more information about the recently revealed Super Mario All-Stars collection which is coming to the Wii under the guise of the Super Mario Collection Special Pack.
Super Mario is celebrating his 25th anniversary this year. Now’s the time to rediscover the fun of all the Super Mario games you have played. All instalments will be included in this super package, enjoy the classic platform action from the 80s and step up to the new ones. You can even experience the rare Super Mario USA journey.
Besides gaming, the package comes with a booklet with all the game sketches, illustrations and development information. Come see how Mario evolved over the years as you listen to the special soundtracks. Favourite themes and arrangements from all existing Mario games are collected into this CD. If you are a true fan, you couldn’t miss this package.
According to the latest issue of the prestigious Famitsu magazine Nintendo have issued a trademark for the Super Mario Collection.
Whilst links have been made between Super Mario All-Stars and the proposed trademark, nothing has actually been confirmed. Undoubtedly the title will surface for either the Wii Virtual Console or the Nintendo DS at some point in the near future.
