Nintendo Planning New SUPER MARIO Games And Remasters To Commemorate The Series' 35th Anniversary

According to multiple sources, Nintendo's first-party line-up for the rest of the year will be dominated by Mario games old and new, to celebrate the 35th anniversary of Super Mario Bros...

As reported by Video Game Chronicle, Nintendo is planning to hold an event to coincide with this year's anniversary, which marks 35 years since the start of the mainline Super Mario franchise in 1985. 

At this event, Nintendo will unveil plans to re-release most of Super Mario's back catalogue this year, remastered for Nintendo Switch.

Furthermore, Eurogamer reports that remasters will include 1997’s Super Mario 64, 2002’s Super Mario Sunshine and 2007’s Super Mario Galaxy.

Additionally, Nintendo will release several other Super Mario titles in 2020, including a new instalment in the Paper Mario series and a Deluxe version of 2013’s Super Mario 3D World.

These plans will be revealed alongside new details of Nintendo’s partnership with Universal, and the pair’s Super Nintendo World theme park attractions and animated Super Mario movie.

The Super Mario 35th Anniversary reveal was originally due to take place as a physical event at E3 in June, but Nintendo is now reviewing its plans becauseof the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. E3 2020 has been cancelled due to the virus outbreak and Nintendo could instead opt for a digital showcase.

When asked about this story, Nintendo said it “Does not comment on rumour and speculation.”
