It seems that Nintendo is planning on pulling out all the stops for the upcoming 35th anniversary of Super Mario, and if VideoGamesChronicle’s latest update is anything to go by, there’s tons of exciting content coming for players.
Since its release in 1985, Super Mario has continued to be a smashing success for Nintendo, and to celebrate one of their most-loved game franchises, it has been reported that the Japanese gaming giants are ‘planning to re-release’ the entire Super Mario back catalog for Nintendo Switch.
It is also believed that a new title from the Paper Mario series will also be released in 2020, however no official date or more information about that game is available at this present time.
The plans are reportedly set to be revealed alongside the partnership with Universal, which pairs new information about the Super Mario Theme Park and upcoming animated movie.

VideoGamesChronicle’s state that Nintendo were supposedly going to reveal the Super Mario news at this year’s E3, but now that the event has been cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, they’re likely to reveal the news in a more digital format.
I can tell you one thing for certain, as soon as Super Mario Galaxy becomes on offer, I will be pre-ordering the hell out of it. While the world is in an uncertain place, one thing is for sure – I’ve got a LOT of exciting new games to be spending my isolation time on.
