It comes with a soundtrack and a 32-page history booklet for just $29.99. .Supplies are said to be limited so keep that in mind if you're considering waiting for it to get cheaper.

Sites that still have it in stock at $29.99 or less:

Description from Press Release:

The games included in the Super Mario All-Stars collection are Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, Super Mario Bros. 2 and Super Mario Bros. 3. Each game features the enhanced graphics and updated sound from the Super NES™ Super Mario All-Stars collection, and all four can be played on the Wii system using one of several controllers: the Wii Remote™ controller, Classic Controller™, Classic Controller Pro™ or the Nintendo GameCube™ controller.

Also included is a Super Mario History soundtrack CD, a compilation of memorable music from the Mario franchise. Containing classic theme songs and fun sound effects from the original Super Mario Bros. game all the way up to this year's acclaimed Super Mario Galaxy™ 2 game, this special disc also marks the first official release of the "Super Mario Bros. Ground Theme," widely recognized as one of the most famous pieces of video game music in history.

Rounding out the Super Mario All-Stars collection is a 32-page Super Mario History booklet featuring interviews, behind-the-scenes details and rare concept art. Fans from every generation can enjoy firsthand insights into the beginnings of Mario, illustrated with candid photos and never-before-seen design sketches. Together with the game software and soundtrack, it's the ultimate tribute to a unique game series.

Edit: this is what the US Packaging will look like

This is what the Japanese version looks like for reference. I can't guarantee the US version will look like this:

And for those that want to hound on this being MSRP. I posted it here because it is a Limited item, and because there are many CAG who don't venture outside the deals forum and may have missed this. Mods can move this to a more appropriate place if they want.

Do want...but, how many damn times do they want us to buy the same damn game over and over?

Super Mario Bros:
NES
SNES (All stars)
GBA
Virtual Console

This will be the fifth time they sold us this game.

It's not their fault if consumers keep buying it though. They don't demand you buy it. Just like the average person, everyone is looking to make a quick buck.

Nintendo is amazing, 25 YEARS of the same game being released. Quite an achievment. Must make other companies marketing teams green with envy! And we buy it everytime! :lol:

It seems kind of odd now that the 25th Anniversary Wii bundle won't include this game. I also think Nintendo should have released a DS version of All-Stars for the 25th anniversary.

That makes no sense to me at all that this isn't included with the 25th anniversary Wii or DSi XL.

Wow, I can't believe I am going to buy these same games again. I don't want to buy them just because I have bought them so many times before (NES, Mario All-Stars, GBA, Virtual Console), but I just can't pass up this limited edition.

They want you to have to double dip. Having said that, I'm all over this like white on rice.

Picked up one, with my Fable III credit.

Though, when I went to check out, there was a $9.99 promotion applied, so I ended up getting it for free after promotions. :-s

I wish they would just sell a "bundle" of those games in the VC for that price. I don't want to put a disc in to play these games... Am I correct that you can't get the lost levels on VC?

No brainer for me I will get this just for the bonus items not to mention the games. I own these in every possible configuration but years ago I wanted something like this on the gamecube and gladly announced I would pay $100 for it and now we get this on wii with this bonus stuff for $29.99 count me in. I just purchased super mario bros 2 (japanese version) last night on wiiware for the 600 wii points and man that game is hard. I have a cartridge of it I can play on my nes but with no save state the game is nearly impossible to beat in one sitting. I've beaten it on snes (lost levels) because it does have the save state but I love the old super mario bros graphics from 1986.

I wish they would re-release all the SNES mario games on one disc...

Super Mario World
Super Mario Kart
Yoshi's Island
Super Mario RPG
Possibly even Tetris Attack, such a good game LOL

That being said, I'm a sucker for all things Mario and I pre-ordered as well on Amazon
