If you’re interested in Super Mario 3D All Stars, you only have a few months to get the collection. After March 2021, it will no longer be sold in any form. Shipping to the store will be discontinued and will be removed from the Switch eShop. The same is actually happening with Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and Blade of Light.

Nintendo’s US President Doug Bauzer was asked about this approach in an interview polygon.. When asked about the logic of removing a game, he explained:

“Yes, I think I’ll use simple words: Congratulations. That’s it-this is Mario’s 35th Anniversary Celebration. And we wanted to celebrate in a unique and different way. It’s Super. We did it through games such as Mario 3D All Stars, or through future releases such as Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury.

And Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. And Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit and other releases have made that happen. There are many ways to celebrate Mario’s 35th anniversary. And with some of these titles, we felt it was an opportunity to release them for a limited time. They are doing very, very well. Super Mario 3D All Stars has sold over 2.6 million units in the United States alone. And obviously, consumers were able to dive in and enjoy it. And while it’s not a strategy that we use widely, it’s a strategy that we think is very unique on an actual anniversary. “

Bowser concludes, “At this point, the decision was actually made about the function and aspect of the celebration.” “I can’t talk about plans after the end of March,” he said.
