Super Mario 64 Is Being Remastered


Nintendo is bringing back Super Mario 64.

The gaming giant has announced that it will be re-releasing a series of classic games, including Super Mario Sunshine, Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario 3D World.

The exciting news comes as part of Nintendo's 35th anniversary celebration of the Super Mario Bros. series.

Super Mario 3D All-Stars collection is set to launch on the Nintendo Switch on 18 September, with a limited run until around 31 March 2021.

Nintendo has also announced that it is releasing and enhanced version of the Wii U game Super Mario 3D World - Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury - for Switch on 12 February 2021.

And if that wasn't enough, there's more.

Nintendo has also today (3 September) re-released Super Mario All-Stars, the Super NES collection which boasts remastered versions of Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, Super Mario Bros. 2, and Super Mario Bros. 3.

In a press release, a spokesperson for Nintendo said: "Optimized versions of 3D Mario games Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy are coming to Nintendo Switch in one package.

"In addition to having higher resolutions than their original versions, the games have been optimized for a smooth gameplay experience on Nintendo Switch. Super Mario 3D All-Stars also includes an in-game music-player mode to play the music and songs from all three games.

The exciting news comes as Nintendo celebrates 35 years of the Super Mario Bros. series.

"Players can also listen to music on their Nintendo Switch systems when the screen is off.

"A limited production of Super Mario 3D All-Stars launches exclusively for the Nintendo Switch family of systems on 18 September and will be available until approximately 31 March 2021."

The exciting package also includes Super Mario Bros. 35... a Mario-themed battle royale.

Nintendo expanded: "Welcome to Super Mario Bros. ... with 35 players. In this competitive online battle game, 35 players will compete to be the last Mario standing ... or running.

"Enemies defeated will be sent to other players' courses, but that also works the other way around! Players can activate special items to try and outpace their opponents."

Super Mario Bros. 35 will be available to play on the Nintendo Switch on 1 October as a digital freebie for online members.
