Report: Super Mario remasters coming to Nintendo Switch for 35th anniversary

Nintendo will reportedly release most of its Super Mario franchise games on Nintendo Switch this year, according to a new report.

British gaming website Video Game Chronicle reported that Nintendo will celebrate Super Mario’s 35th anniversary by releasing updated versions of “most” of its Super Mario games. No specific games were mentioned, but Eurogamer reported that Super Mario Galaxy is among the remastered titles — “alongside a couple of other 3D Mario favourites.” Both reports suggested a new Paper Mario title will also be released this year, as well as “a Deluxe version of Super Mario 3D World” with a bunch of new levels.

Video Game Chronicle also reported Nintendo will announce new details regarding its Super Nintendo World theme park and an animated Super Mario movie.

The Super Mario series was first introduced in 1985. Nintendo expected to announce its anniversary plans at E3 in June, Video Game Chronicle said. E3 2020 was canceled in March over COVID-19 concerns.

Nintendo has not responded to Polygon’s request for comment before publication time.

Nintendo Switch consoles are often sold out, but you can still pick up the handheld-only Switch Lite, which is perfect for portable gaming.
