More details have emerged this morning regarding Nintendo’s plans for the 35th anniversary of the Super Mario franchise. Video Games Chronicles says that Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy re-releases will be produced as one Nintendo Switch physical collection as a special anniversary collection of games. Super Mario 3D World will be sold separately and will feature new content and levels.
On the topic of the return of the Paper Mario franchise for the Nintendo Switch platform, Venture Beat reports that the game will be a return to the series roots. It will feature plenty of RPG action and will be more like earlier entries rather than the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U entries.
This array of Super Mario titles to celebrate the franchise’s 35th anniversary was planned to be announced at E3 this June, but plans have changed due to the coronavirus pandemic spreading throughout the world.
