Retail Codes Allow Super Mario 3D All-Stars to Be Sold After March 31

Nintendo has never explained the reason why, but on March 31 it will stop selling Super Mario 3D All-Stars through the Switch eShop and no more physical copies are being produced. However, the game will still be available in April, but probably not for long.

As well as producing copies of the game on cartridges, retailers were also offered download cards for the game. These cards contain a code which can be used to secure a digital copy through the eShop. As VGC reports, Nintendo has confirmed these codes will continue to work after the March 31 deadline. So if you still haven’t bought the game, there’s still a week left to grab it from the eShop, or you can try and find a download card.

If you’re wondering how serious Nintendo is about no longer selling copies of this Mario collection, in Japan, any remaining physical copies will be pulled from store shelves on April 1. Even merchandise associated with the games will be removed. Again, it makes little sense as to why the company decided to do this considering how popular Mario games are.

Launched on Sept. 18 last year, Super Mario 3D All-Stars offers Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy as a compilation for $60. All three games are emulated, with Super Mario 64 played at 720p while the other two games achieve a 1080p resolution. The games offer older gamers a nostalgia trip, while allowing younger gamers to experience fun as it was defined back in 1996 when Super Mario 64 was released for the N64 console.
