This year it is 35 years since Mario jumped on his first Goomba. Over the years, he has become a superstar and poster name for the entire gaming world. Of course, the anniversary does not go unnoticed and Nintendo will celebrate his golden boy really.
The celebration includes games that are new to Switch as Super Mario 3D All-Stars, a collection of three classic Mario games in the form of Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy. In addition, it is also released Super Mario Bros. 35, an online game where 35 players can play together in the world from Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, a finely honed version of Super Mario 3D World.
Highlights from the broadcast:
Super Mario 3D All-Stars: In this collection you get updated versions of Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy, for Nintendo Switch. In addition to higher resolution than its original versions, the games have also been optimized for a smooth gaming experience on the Nintendo Switch. However, the physical version is only a limited edition and the digital version will only be available at the end of March 2021.
Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit: Created in collaboration between Nintendo and Velan Studios. Here you finally get the opportunity to get all the fun of the Mario Kart series to the real world by using a Nintendo Switch or Nintendo Switch Lite and competing with a physical kart.

Players place poles to create the course layout in their own home, where the only limit is their imagination. Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, available in the Mario or Luigi variants, will be launched on October 16.
