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


I guess I'll double dip and pick one up too. I am tempted to just wait for the 50th Anniversary Limited Edition pack which will undoubtedly include the same exact 4 games as usual, but alas I'll spend the money now.

If this game is widely sold it won't be worth anything so why are some people buying 2 copies? If it was only sold at one retailer or through Nintendo's website then it might actually be rare but this won't be. I'll wait for a price drop.

There's always a minor boost in value right after the game goes OOP. It could be an easy way to make $10. Nintendo games are usually the least likely games to see a price drop, especially if it's a limited print run. Zelda still has a MSRP of $50 four years after it came out.

How the Fuck is this the 25th anniversary of Mario? Super Mario Bros. 1, perhaps, but Mario Bros. and Donkey Kong were out well before 1985...1981 or around there. Too lazy to go look it up.


That's right, it's a SMB anniversary, not a Jump-man anniversary. ;)

Thanks for the heads up! I was having fits that we weren't getting this for the past few weeks. Preordered @amazon they opened them back up again. Well worth the $10 after the credits I have. :D

Shewww, just got my amazon order in. Don't know why it was showing up as not available for a few mins there. I think this will be very limited because people are going to be buying lots of them so I had to dive in. Plus if kmart gets it I will probably pick up a 2nd copy from them. This is a must buy. I don't know why the 1 click preorder thing did not give me the option to select free shipping but when I just checked out it still gave me the pre order price gurantee not using 1 click so I had to cancel the 1st order and order again saving me the $4.49 shipping cost or whatever it was. $31.79 for me with tax since I'm in Ky.

Anyone heard anything on the print run of this? I am split between picking this up as a nice collectors item and waiting for it to be $10 in 6 months like most games these days ;)

Pre-ordered! I already have them all on Virtual Console (got the first one for free through a Club Nintendo e-mail), can't wait

Only problem is there was no option for Release-Day delivery whatsoever, currently talking with Customer Support to see what happened there.

It is going to be widely distributed. It probably won't be $10 in six months as Nintendo is aggressive about preventing retailers from dropping prices on their first party games, but it also shouldn't be an item people are grabbing to speculate on. For $30 it's a fair price for what's included, but they will likely be pressing millions of them just like every other first party release.

Correct, it's not even a Mario anniversary as Mario Bros. was released 1983. I wonder how many more fake anniversary celebrations Nintendo can create if this one works out well for them financially?

one to play and one for the collection.

at 29.99, it's a no brainer for me.

I would have picked this up had it been $49.99 because I love anything mario and these 2d games where the best imho. The virtual console offerings are different too so to have the snes variations on the wii is neat.

FWIW-
"Nintendo says that sales will continue "while supplies last," which makes it sound like there will be only one run of the All-Stars collection."

Just like with the Metroid Prime Trilogy being a Limited Edition, this one is also a Limited Edition. And they proved last time that when they say "Limited", they mean it, they will only make a fixed number of these in a single run, once they are gone, they are gone.

prob the same as with MPT. I like that Nintendo actually made that limited. I hate limited/collectors editions that have 6 billions prints.

Thanks op, ordered a copy from GS. I had almost forgot about the $20 credit I had from SMG2, and this seemed like an apporpriate game to spend it on. With free shipping and tax total came to about $12.

Yes, but MPT was in stock for well over a year and just because something only has one run doesn't mean it's rare. They literally sold millions of copies of MPT. Heck, people are still finding copies of MPT at Toys R Us on clearance. I think this is a neat package, but people that are buying multiple copies in hopes of reselling them down the road are straight up foolish.

Buying a single copy as game I want to replay and introduce to others. If it actually turns out to be rare that is the great, but I'm not counting on it.

Awesome. Used $20 Amazon credit on it to drop it to $10. I still own the original, but my kids I love these games so much, I can't resist buying this...

I'm thinking that they will probably sell just the game after the "limited release" is sold out.

Ie, no music cd or artbook....

Super Mario Bros was released on September 13th, 1985. How is this year not the 25th anniversary of that game?

Thanks OP, preordered even though I have the game in cart form (mostly want it for collecting purposes).

That game didn't really come out, you see. The only Mario games that truly exist are Donkey Kong games and... Oh wait, people complaining about the anniversary are ridiculous. My bad.

Awesome, about time!

I think I may have to pick it up. Even though I don't need anymore of the games, I think it would be nice to have another collection of them as well as all the extra goodies. Plus, I love my Mario, so I have to make sure to keep my Mario games alive and there is no telling when one of the other copies is gonna go!

I never owned Super Mario All-Stars, although I did own the original games. Must buy!

i like a pristine copy for my collection.

btw, mpt is now selling for 80+

so while it might not pay the mortgage for resllers, i'd rather buy it now than have to shell out more later.

I can't believe SMW isn't included. I really want the extra stuff but I still have a functional, plugged-in SNES with the SMAS + SMW cart stuck in the system right now. I think I'll pass. Why in the name god didn't they at least include SMW? I actually know why but it still pisses me off. Nintendo knows how to make money, don't think for a second that they don't.
