I have one, it's in an unofficial category but as far as I know it's the fastest time for it.


I got this in a voice call with someone blaring hentai and it was beautiful.

2. 4 or 5 games on one cartridge is alot of work. If they did do it, there is no way Nintendo would still charge it for 60 bucks.


Maybe a little late for this bump but might as well.
-Halo: The Master Chief Collection has 6 technically more impressive games (all with graphical upgrades) for $40.
-Both the Crash N-Sane trilogy and the Spyro Reignited trilogy are $40 each which are all ground-up remakes.

Nintendo could maybe slide by charging this like $30 and maybe having this as a release with a larger more anticipated game like what with Sega did with Sonic Mania/Forces (gesture towards the past while looking towards a bright future), but $60 is a bit much for what's essentially 3 ports of semi-retro games that (aside from Sunshine) are still available for decently cheap on Wii/Wii U. It's not a matter of how much work needs to be put in (seeing as Super Mario 64 is in 4:3 and 30 fps when fangames have put it at 16:9 and 60 fps), it's a matter of branding.
What makes less sense is that this is marketed as the star attraction for Mario this year. Granted, Super Mario's 25th anniversary game was just as if not more half-assed (a port of Super Mario All-Stars with some extra goodies), but Galaxy 2 had come out 6 months prior which on its own could have acted as a 25th anniversary game, and it wasn't marketed as the hot new system seller 3D All-Stars is. Now, the last original Mario game that came out was Odyssey almost 3 years ago, so seeing what is for the most part a rom and 2 iso's be marketed as the huge release baffles me.
What ultimately breaks the camel's back here in my opinion that the game is a) in a limited physical release, so it's mostly digital and b) the digital release is only available for 6 months, and after that is gone forever. The first one is mostly personal preference (I grew up in an age where digital downloads for new games weren't really a thing, and I'd say about 95% of all the media I personally own are still on physical media), so maybe others aren't super bothered by it. The second one however is inexcusable. I get that consoles become unprofitable to maintain and thus games stop being made and printed for them (I mean you aren't going to see any game for a console that's older than 15 years old in your local Gamestop), but the Switch is nowhere close to that point. In just 3 years, the Switch sold 60 million units, a number I'm sure only the DS and the PS2 could claim to have even matched. I'd expect to see the Switch to be produced at least for the next 7-8 years, so having a limited release game at this stage seems incredibly scummy. In addition, I wouldn't be surprised if this is the big new Mario game for at least the next 3 years because I'd imagine they'll still be rereleasing Wii U games by the time the system finally bites the dust (maybe they'll start rereleasing Gamecube and Wii games once the Wii U well runs dry? lol).
I personally have quick and easy access to all 3 in the form of my own copy of Super Mario 64 DS, a friend's copy of Super Mario Sunshine, and my own copy of Super Mario Galaxy, so I don't have much incentive to buy it. Maybe others aren't as fortunate as I (it's probably the cheapest way to buy Sunshine for now if nothing else), but that's the position I'm in.

Might as well give my thoughts on the rest of what was offered in the Mario 35 direct.
-Super Mario Bros. 35 is a neat little idea, basically Tetris 99 in Super Mario Bros form. I don't know why it's only playable for like 6 months but it is I guess.
-The Super Mario Bros. Game and Watch is a little overpriced and gimmicky but nothing horrible, if it was a little cheaper I would definitely pick it up.
-Super Mario 3D World+ is another Wii U port.
-Mario Kart Live is OK, I would have gone crazy for this had it released in 2012 but it's been over 6 years since we've received a brand new Mario Kart and 15 since we've received a kart of significant quality. Plus $100 is a little steep for what amounts to a kind-of-but-not-really Mario Kart Maker.
-The new merch is neat, I already have a fair amount so I don't see much need to get more but if you don't have I'd imagine it could be a good starting point.
-The Super Mario All-Stars release is pretty inoffensive, I don't know why they didn't include the version with Super Mario World (the 25th anniversary release also didn't use that version) but whatever I guess, it's free with Online.

Overall, it's a bit disappointing overall, it's just too little for what they're advertising as this big thing. Everything is either hampered some baffling decisions by Nintendo or simply coming at the wrong time.

It's still better than whatever Game Freak is going to shart out come 2021 (any one of Diamond and Pearl remakes, Let's Go Johto, or Ultra Sword/Ultra Shield).

Anyways happy 35th to Super Mario Bros.

Been nearly 6 years since I signed up there...

I'm WAZZUPYOSHI. I don't battle much anymore but you can challenge me to Gens 1-4 OU or Gen 7-8 UU/RU whenever I'm on. Obviously randbats as well.
