Talked to the Nintendo rep at my store today and she hadn't been told anything about the so called "Super Mario 3D All-Stars recall" at the end of the month. Never heard them do anything like it in the 30 years of working for them.

I am curious about this myself. I think they are just stopping retailers from getting more stock/not making anymore. It doesn’t make financial sense to recall everything.

what would they even do with all the inventory if they were to recall the game? call up atari so they can bury it with ET?

I doubt there would be a formal recall of the game - all copies would just go on a sendback to the publisher on a certain date.

There will be no physical recall; they will be just removing the games from the eshop (*) and cease to produce 3D All Stars physical. I guess from April 1st and on, the physical version of the game will start to increase it's price considerably as a rare limited version.

 

(*) If you have already bought the game, you will be able to still play it. Even if you delete it, you will still be able to re-download it.

Not sure why people are thinking they are going to recall thousands of copies of the game that are out at retailers. They are just going to stop producing new copies. It's no different than most games that companies do one printing of.

Because the wording is that is exactly what they are planning to do.   It makes no sense for them to do it, unless this is something they want to try and do for future releases and these items are our "example".  So when the zelda 35th stuff comes up and it's limited ... we'll feel a little more pressure to go grab copies (though after mario, I'll wait for Walmart to stock the game(s) and save my $10+tax).

I've read multiple articles about it including the original Nintendo of Japan tweet and nowhere does it say they are going to be recalling or pulling copies of the game already at retail off the shelf.

SUPER MARIO 3D ALL-STARS
Nintendo confirmed that physical copies of the Mario re-release will stop being produced at the end of March. Also, the downloadable version will be pulled from the Nintendo eShop at midnight on April 1 in Japan.

As far as I could tell, they aren’t planning to have stores ship back unsold copies on April 1; they just won’t be making any more. Of course, I don’t know how that differs from all other games, it’s not like they are constantly producing them. I think the digital version is where the main difference is.

If I thought it was going to leave shelves. I would have bought a few copies last week before GCU went offline.

So bizarre. I wonder if the Big N is planning individual releases on eShop for SM64, Sunshine and Galaxy.

Yeah, I'm thinking retailers will just sell through their remaining stock and just never receive more. This whole limited time thing with these games was a confusing choice, but Nintendo was practically founded on confusing choices.

 

Thanks for the new thread btw!

Or there are tons of copies on shelves and they are trying to use the threat of lack of future supply to try to move the existing supply.

I fully expect this.  And add Galaxy 2 at some point.  $29.99 each maybe?

Pin Set #2 came today (USPS MI), box is much larger than expected (had hoped it would be the same dimensions a Set #1) but it'll fit somewhere!  :-P

Hey, I just checked the rewards website. there are more missions to qualify for the pins! I just finished mine and got an order in for the pins and the mario kart lanyard for just the $5 shipping.

As part of their anniversary campaign, Qubic Games discounts a good chunk of their catalog to $0.17, $1.70 and $5 if you own certain games of theirs. (You almost certainly do, there’s even a free one)

This includes the classic Bit.Trip games for $1.70 each!

I'm still hoping to snag a preorder of the SS Joycon at Walmart since it seems all other places have already sold out. Walmart has yet to put them up for sale.

I doubt they even made any additional copies after the first printing. My store is still sitting on 50 copies after the initial rush died down.

It would make sense.  I'm hoping they do the same for Bowser's Fury for those of us who aren't willing to re-purchase a Wii U game at full price just to get it.

If the theoretical new switch does have a bigger screen I wonder if it will cost more than the current model.

I've been holding out way too long waiting for an upgraded model, unique limited edition or even just some random sale to finally get a Switch since I've already picked up about half a dozen games for it. Lol.

A couple of things. Nintendo has not announced anything. If people are disappointed that the screen is bigger and not 1080p, they have to realize that Nintendo likely wants to keep the $299 price point and does not lose money on systems. I don't know too much about the specs but adding more memory and outputting 4K docked means they had to cut corners to hit that $299 price point to still be profitable. Hell, maybe they sell it for $349 because the parts cost over $299. All I know is that history shows us Nintendo does not like losing money on their consoles.

Alongside a BOTW2 Switch Pro Limited Edition, comes with Digital version of the Game

 

That will sell systems

7" display would make total sense. That's the diagonal size of the glass portion of the screen on the current model that now has a black bezel built-in. This means the new model could be the same physical size, and more importantly same physical height so existing joycons would fit.
