Nintendo recently announced that Super Mario All-Stars will be playable for free via Switch Online, providing you have a paid subscription. This SNES title from 1993 is made up of remakes of the first three Super Mario games from the NES, as well as Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels from the Famicom. All of the titles have improved graphics, an updated soundtrack, and other gameplay tweaks.
A decade ago, Nintendo re-released the title on Wii to celebrate Mario’s 25th anniversary, complete with a bonus soundtrack CD and art book. However, fans thought that this was an underwhelming cash-grab on the company’s part.
However, it seems that Nintendo have learned their lesson for the iconic plumber’s 35th Anniversary, with titles like Super Mario 3D All-Stars (made up of Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy) heading to Switch later this month. On October 1st, Super Mario Bros. 35 will be released – 35 players can in a battle royale version of the first game, with varying objectives and other neat twists.
