Nintendo has finally announced Super Mario 3D All-Stars to celebrate Mario's 35th Anniversary.
Once upon a time, Super Mario Sunshine was one of the best games ever released; and if you ask some Nintendo fans they will still say it is right up there with the greats.
Released all the way back in 2002 for the Gamecube, it's arriving on the Nintendo Switch.
Let's take a look at everything we know so far!
The game will be available on the Nintendo Switch only.
The game is only available for a limited time and will expire in March 2021.
The game is retailing for £49.99/$59.99 USD/$59.99 CAD.

So it appears Nintendo is going all out for their 35 birthday, and this may also be in large part due to the on-going global pandemic. Perhaps Nintendo is filling the void that they originally had with other first-party titles, but are being forced to delay them.
