Mario All-Stars coming to North America for 25th anniversary

It’s been twenty-five years since Super Mario Bros. first waddled into our lives, and Nintendo is celebrating the only way it knows how — with different colored consoles. If you didn’t want to buy another Wii just because it’s red though, don’t worry – Mario All-Stars is coming to North America, too. 

Mario All-Stars is a Wii compilation of Mario’s NES adventures, featuring enhanced graphics and sound. For $29.99 you’ll get Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, Super Mario Bros. 2 and Super Mario Bros. 3.

The lack of SNES or Game Boy titles is rather disappointing, and I’m not sure if four NES games are worth thirty bucks to me. Still, this looks like one of those games people buy just to have, and I’m sure it would look nice on your shelf. Besides, I’m a gullible idiot, so I’ll probably end up buying it anyway. 

The game’s out on December 12 and will be on sale “while supplies last.”
