December 3rd is the day the UK can get their hands on Super Mario All-Stars for the wii. We already knew for some time that Japan was getting it on October 21st but now Nintendo has nailed down a release date for the Brits.
Super Mario All-Stars is essentially a re-packaging of the classic Mario bundle from the SNES console. The shiny red box also includes a soundtrack with music from all the games, plus a special booklet with unseen artwork and development materials. It’s a retro junkies heroin fix if ever there was one. This long-time Mario devotee is drooling over the keyboard just looking at the box art.
There’s no doubt about it, this will be a much sought after stocking filler this Christmas.
In other Nintendo news, a new Mario-themed wii has also been announced. Continuing with the Mario Anniversary celebrations like a late-night stag party that just won’t quit, Nintendo will be unleashing a shiny new red wii with matching wii-mote.
The console will come bundled with the classic Mario Brothers NES game, but with a few twists. For one, the coin blocks have the number 25 in them. Japan will see the anniversary edition wii hit the shelves on November 11th, with a rest-of-the-world date to be announced.
