Super Mario has become a big boy now, and he is close to hitting his 35th birthday. Nintendo was rumored to celebrate the character’s 35th anniversary in style, but the current pandemic forced the Japanese company to scrap most of its plans. But a celebration is seemingly still happening.
According to YouTuber Nate the Hate, who has proved to be pretty reliable when it comes to Nintendo related rumors, revealed that the Japanese company is going to reveal the rumored Super Mario Remasters this month, possibly on the day Mario turns 35th, on September 13th.
As for when these remasters will finally release, Nate the Hate cannot say, but they should be made available for Nintendo Switch before the end of the year. Other related projects, like the Super Mario 3D World remaster, will probably slip to 2021 as a result.
Adding more fuel to the fire is Video Games Chronicles, who verified the information with their own sources. At this point, the only thing that is left is to finally announce these games, and let the celebrations begin.
The Super Mario 35th Anniversary Remaster collection is rumored to include Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, Super Mario Galaxy, and Super Mario Galaxy 2, acting pretty much like a 3D version of the Super Mario All-Stars collection, which includes the first three entries in the series as well as the former Japanese exclusive version of Super Mario Bros. 2, known in North America and Europe as The Lost Levels. This game may also hit the SNES – Nintendo Switch Online service in the near future as part of the celebrations. Which we hope will begin soon!
