To promote the upcoming Super Mario 3D All Stars collection, Nintendo Japan released several touching commercials.
Thanks to a sudden Nintendo Direct on Thursday the Super Mario 3D All Stars collection — which will feature Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy — was revealed. To promote the brand new collection, which will be releasing on September 18th for Nintendo Switch, Nintendo’s Japan released four heartwarming commercials promoting it:
The overarching theme of these commercials is that Super Mario 3D All Stars is a way for those who grew up playing these games, particularly Super Mario 64, to connect with those playing them now for the first time. Whether it’s parent and child, new players and veterans, everyone can come together and enjoy these titles. It’s a sweet and touching message, and the commercials are done incredibly well.
It’s funny that after months of these games being rumored, Nintendo just drops the news on our unsuspecting laps. All three titles will have higher resolutions: Super Mario 64 while remastered will only be running at 720p whether or not you’re playing handheld or on the big screen. Both Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy will play in 720p undocked and 1080p docked. Super Mario Sunshine and Galaxy will both have 16:9 screen ratio, and Super Mario Galaxy will add joycon support to replace the Wii controller motion gameplay. A massive OST featuring tracks from all three games will also be included in the collection.
Super Mario 3D All-Stars is set to release exclusively on Nintendo Switch. If you are planning to get a physical copy be sure to pre-order as soon as possible. 3D All-Stars will only be available until March 31, 2021, so there will be a very short supply unless you purchase digitally. You can pre-order the game right now on Amazon.
To check out all of the Mario announcements, you can watch the full direct on Nintendo’s official YouTube channel.
