Nintendo has announced a whole bunch of Super Mario games are soon heading to the Switch – including new version of Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Galaxy.
The Japanese electronics company surprise-announced the news in a special Direct broadcast at 2pm today, dedicated entirely to the 35th anniversary of the Super Mario Bros franchise.
In the Direct, Nintendo revealed that Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Mario Galaxy will be coming to the Switch on Wednesday, September 16.
The three games will be released in one package called the Super Mario 3D All Stars and each one has been upscaled for the Switch, with better graphics and performance.
Among other announcements, Nintendo is working on what appears to be a real-life Mario Kart circuit to play at home, through your Switch.
Mario Kart Lve Home Circuit is an Augmented Reality game which uses AC cars as well as your Switch console and it will be released on October 16.
Also coming to the Switch is Super Mario 3D World, which is an improved version of the original game on the Wii U console.
The multiplayer game will have an expansion with it too, bringing new levels to tackle when it releases.
Multiple old Mario games are coming to the Nintendo Switch Online service, like Super Mario Bros. 35, which is a digital-only title coming on October 1.
Super Mario All-Stars is bringing four classic Mario games to the Switch as well, which includes the first Mario game on the NES, Mario 2, Mario 3 and Mario Lost Levels.
These classic Mario games have been given enhanced audio and visuals from the original NES versions – as an added bonus this collection is available now.
The news is surely a relief to fans who have been hungry for anything Nintendo related this year since the company was yet to announce any of its first-party line-up titles coming to the Switch.
