Given that he is the mascot of the company and generates more revenue each year than we can imagine in our little mind, Nintendo will certainly have a poor old Mario day next year. It’s like hell to ruin.
March 31, 2021 has been shaped to be a fairly memorable day in Mario’s history, all for the wrong reason. On that day, Super Mario 3D All Stars will no longer be sold physically or digitally. Super Mario Bros. 35 launches from Switch eShop. The new Super Mario Game & Watch System will no longer be available for purchase. And now the online service of the poor old Super Mario Maker is shut down.
So what about the March 31st deal? Now, the only thing that jumps out to us right away about that date is that it hits the turn of the fiscal year – it will serve as a sort of reset for companies around the world. The limited availability of Super Mario 3D All-Stars can be seen as a tactic to boost sales and revenue figures for the current fiscal year, tempting fans to spend more cash faster than usual. But that’s not the description of Super Mario Bros. 35 unfortunate cutoff.
Whatever the reason, the world will be a little less Mario from that date. very Certainly a sad idea.
