Retail Super Mario collection coming to Wii… in Japan

Nintendo of Japan has confirmed that it will be releasing the Super Mario Collection Special Pack for the Wii in Japan this year on October 21.

The Special Pack is said to be basically be the Super Mario All-Stars collection released on the Super Nintendo back in the early-90s. The collection contained visually updated versions of classic Super Mario Bros. titles, including Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Bros. 3, and Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels.

Sweetening the deal, this package is said to come with a special booklet and a soundtrack CD. The booklet, “Super Mario History 1985-2010,” will reportedly feature never-before-seen development images and information. The soundtrack is a similar deal, and will contain select music from the Super Mario Bros. series of games, all the way up through Super Mario Galaxy 2.

No word on a North American release, but let me make my feelings on this clear, Nintendo: I WANT THIS NOW.
