Nintendo will release three classic “Super Mario” games for the Nintendo Switch in a collection called “Super Mario 3D All-Stars” on September 18. The games included are “Super Mario 64,” “Super Mario Sunshine,” and “Super Mario Galaxy.” 

“Super Mario 3D All-Stars” will cost $60 for all three games and both physical and digital versions will be available. However, Nintendo says “Super Mario 3D All-Stars” will only be available until March 31, 2021, at which point the digital download will no longer be available and new physical copies will no longer be made.

It’s unclear why “Super Mario 3D All-Stars” will only be made available for a limited time, especially since “Super Mario” is Nintendo’s flagship franchise and fans have been eager to see the games restored and preserved on Nintendo’s newest hardware.

Digital versions of “Super Mario 64,” “Super Mario Galaxy,” and “Super Mario Galaxy 2” are available on Nintendo’s previous console, the Wii U. “Super Mario Sunshine” was released for the Nintendo GameCube in 2002 and you still need the original game disc to play it legally — the game has never been made available digitally before “Super Mario 3D All-Stars.”

Hopefully, Nintendo will make “Super Mario 64,” “Super Mario Sunshine,” and “Super Mario Galaxy” available as separate digital downloads when “Super Mario 3D All-Stars” is no longer available, and with any luck, “Super Mario Galaxy 2” will be added to the Switch library as well.

How to preorder “Super Mario 3D All-Stars” for the Nintendo Switch

You can preorder “Super Mario 3D All-Stars” digitally through Nintendo’s eShop, which will let you download the game in advance to play as soon as it’s released on September 18. As noted above, the game will only be available to buy until March 31, 2021.
