Super Mario All Stars for Wii = Time to buy Super Mario Bros. Again.
According to some Japanese leak (and people who know how to translate that shit into English) Nintendo’s planning a little surprise to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Super Mario Bros. for the NES later this year. It looks like those lucky fuckers are getting a re-release of Super Mario All Stars for Wii. You know: That cart that came out for the SNES with visual and audio upgraded versions of all the original Mario platformers and the infamous Lost Levels (known as Super Mario Bros. 2 in Japan). The package will also include some sweet-ass booklet and a soundtrack featuring music spanning the entire series (up to and including Galaxy).
Now what are the chances that America will see a release of all that cool shit? Probably slim to none (I think they’re still pissed about World War II). Well actually…the disc could happen, meaning I will buy it and own yet more versions of these games. The original NES carts, the SNES All Stars, the versions that I’ve downloaded for the Virtual Console, Super Mario Bros. DX, Super Mario Advance, the retro carts for the GBA….
…I think I may have a problem because I’m legitimately excited.
Hey that post was sort of like a news report!
