    Nintendo confirms 'final shipment' of Super Mario All-Stars


    NINTENDO ANNOUNCES FINAL SHIPMENT OF RETRO MARIO COLLECTION

    Feb. 15, 2011

    Nintendo of America is producing its final run of the Super Mario All-Stars™ Limited Edition package that celebrates the 25th anniversary of the original Super Mario Bros.™ game. The collection went on sale on Dec. 12 at a suggested retail price of $29.99, and nearly all retail locations were out of stock within days. The final shipments will be in stores on March 13.

    The games included in the Super Mario All-Stars collection are Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, Super Mario Bros. 2 and Super Mario Bros. 3. Each game features the enhanced graphics and updated sound from the Super NES™ Super Mario All-Stars collection, and all four can be played on the Wii system using one of several controllers: the Wii Remote™ controller, Classic Controller™, Classic Controller Pro™ or the Nintendo GameCube™ controller.

    Also included is a Super Mario History soundtrack CD, a compilation of memorable music from the Mario™ franchise. Containing classic theme songs and fun sound effects from the original Super Mario Bros. game all the way up to the acclaimed Super Mario Galaxy™ 2 game, this special disc also marks the first official release of the "Super Mario Bros. Ground Theme," widely recognized as one of the most famous pieces of video game music in history.

    Rounding out the Super Mario All-Stars collection is a 32-page Super Mario History booklet featuring interviews, behind-the-scenes details and rare concept art. Fans from every generation can enjoy firsthand insights into the beginnings of Mario, illustrated with candid photos and never-before-seen design sketches. Together with the game software and soundtrack, it’s the ultimate tribute to a unique game series.

    Am I the only one bummed with its not having Super Mario World? I understand N doesn't want to be forcing people to get a Classic Controller to play it, but come on, it wouldn't cost them anything (perhaps it would go from 13 to 20MB scrubbed?) and would be a great bonus--IMHO, anyways.

    I think it's more the nostalgia factor of this release. They could have made a Mario collection and included a lot more than Mario World like Mario64, Mario Sunshine, and so forth given their size and how much they can fit on the disc but that's not the point. This release in identical to my SNES Super Mario All Stars cart so it's like jumping into a time machine.

    Lol, yeah for some reason the game play was simplistic and graphics were lacking. In all seriousness though it is nice to have them all in one area. I would go out and buy the collection if it came with all the old games like darkcide said, I wouldn't mind if they stopped before gamecube though since afterall you can still play the games on the wii.
