Nintendo recently released a new graphic to celebrate the 35th Anniversary of Super Mario, highlighting classic Super Mario games that are now available to play on the Nintendo Switch. The graphic features five beloved titles from the franchise—Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World, Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine.
Classic Games Reimagined
The extended anniversary celebration comes after Nintendo introduced the paid online subscription service for its Switch console—Nintendo Switch Online. Nintendo has had a long-standing relationship with the characters of the iconic franchise, and this year marks 35 years since its introduction into gaming culture. To commemorate that milestone, they have re-released five of the most beloved titles from the series with updated graphics and gameplay.
The games all feature their original levels and challenges but have been remastered with HD visuals to bring them up to date with modern gaming standards. Fans of the franchise will be able to play levels they know and love just as they remember them while also exploring new game content that has been added just for this anniversary celebration.
“For many people, playing these games on a Nintendo platform brings back incredible memories of past experiences,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, president of Nintendo America in an official statement obtained by Nintendo Life. “You can relive those unique moments right now on Switch.”
“No matter if it’s your first or hundredth time playing it,” he added, “these classic Mario games are still just as fun today as they were decades ago.”
