Nintendo is planning to celebrate Super Mario Bros.’ 35th anniversary this year with several major releases, new and old.
Multiple sources have told VGC that the platform holder 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 series in 1985.
As part of its anniversary celebrations, Nintendo will reveal plans to re-release most of Super Mario’s 35-year back catalogue this year, remastered for Nintendo Switch, VGC was told.
As VGC’s network partner Eurogamer reports, these remasters will include 2007’s Super Mario Galaxy as well as other 3D Mario instalments.
Nintendo will also release several other Mario titles in 2020, including a new instalment in the Paper Mario series and a Deluxe version of 2013’s Super Mario 3D World.
