You’ll work your way through Super Mario Bros. levels against 34 other people, sending enemies to waylay them until only one Mario remains. Sound interesting? try it out on release 10th January 2021.
Super Mario All-Stars

Super Mario 3D All-Stars

Game & Watch
Fed up with your DS collecting dust in the corner? Well Nintendo have released a new handheld console…ish. What it actually is is a release of the original Game & Watch device featuring Super Mario Bros., The Lost Levels and a Mario version of Ball. It will function primarily as a clock that you can play SNES Mario on.
Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit
Love Mario but don’t think it scares the dog enough? Look no further than Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit. A RC car set that you control and play using your switch. You’ll be able to interact with others in the same way you would in Mario Kart (mushrooms and shells etc.). But you’ll also be able to crash horribly into a heap and run over the cat!
