@Snatcher don't know about you but absolutely loved the collection. Thought it was a perfect. Although I wouldn't have minded them also adding galaxy 2.

I am extremely curious what Nintendo will do to celebrate Mario’s 100th anniversary but I will not be around by then to know

@1UP_MARIO That one was arguably even lazier than this one because Nintendo rereleased a game from 1993... it must have been legitimately saddening.

@TheJGG it was but it was also retailed nearly half the price. Came with a Mario music cd a history booklet. It was presented better and the box alone felt like a anniversary.

@1UP_MARIO nice but I agree with @TheJGG that it was lazy.

30th anniversary was the best for Mario fans but it was on the Wii U. Super Mario maker.

Thing is the 25th Anniversary Collection does look like a collectors item, far more so than 3D All Stars which didn't have a stell book case, fancy manual or anything extra.

@1UP_MARIO @MetalToad Yeah, the thirtieth was the best, thinking about it. Mario Maker was very uncharted territory for the Mario series as a whole and it was a resounding success. 35 was alright considering COVID but it’s bittersweet because of the limited time of availability.

@jump it didn’t have fancy stuff but it had the better collection of games

@MetalToad I wouldn't say that myself. As a collection it feels off, everytime I play it I think where's Galaxy 2.

30th Mario was the best no argument there from me.

@MetalToad 2d all stars felt like a collection
3d all stars felt incomplete without galaxy 2. It even opens up the menu screen with galaxy 2s star tune

It’s disappointing we in UK/Europe didn’t get that special Mario 35th anniversary pins

We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.

@MetalToad okay 😀

I'd rank them 35th, 25th, 30th.

  • 35th - 3D All Stars is limited time and missing Galaxy 2 (which is bad) but 35th anniversary also had 3D World + Bowser's Fury
  • 25th - All Stars should really have been Wii VC with Galaxy 2 (the other 25th anniversary Mario game) getting the special physical treatment instead (think Skyward Sword for Zelda 25th)
  • 30th - Mario Maker was a good game but 2015 was very much confirmation that Nintendo had given up on Wii U

@MetalToad That's kinda subjective since they are all driven by nostalgia more so than today's standards of gaming. Even then some people will argue Super Mario Bros 3 is better than Galaxy, Super Mario Bros 1 is more important than 64 to gaming etc so each to their own.

@jump true. It’s subjective. It’s a personal opinion

welp, next year is when marios 40th anniversary is. man, 40 is a big one! ive been thinking about this lately and how crazy how quick mario became a huge icon. anyways, ive been thinking what we are gonna get. the switch 2 supposedly releases next year, so most of these ideas are set on switch advance.
i think the anniversary will start with mario and luigi !!!
launch games for switch advance will be 3D MARIO and mario kart X. ports or graphical upgrades (if backwards compatibility) will be mario party jamboree, donkey kong and mario and luigi. mario 40 will come for switch online members and a remake of a past mario game might come. thats my predictions !!!

team BREAD
and most importantly team future !!! so exicited for final fest its becoming a really big year for nintendo now !!
😻😔😔😔😋😔🙀

@OctolingKing13 I bet Mario's 40th anniversary will be a big deal, especially taking in consideration what they did for Mario's 35th Anniversary.

3D Mario is probably a launch title now that it's been about 7 years since the last one. Mario Kart 9/10 will probably release within a year of the next console's launch.

I could see a similar approach to Kirby's 30th anniversary, where a mainline release (Forgotten Land ; Next 3D Mario) comes out, confirm the anniversary will be celebrated throughout the year (Dream Buffet, Kirby Concert, Kirby Remake, Merch, etc. ; Mario Kart 9/10, whatever else Nintendo could've potentially planned)

As to when we'd here about some of the celebrations, I'd guess during a June presentation, whether it be a big segment of a potential June Direct or if it was it's own thing.

Besides 3D Mario and Mario Kart, not sure what we'd see. It could be almost anything, as Mario has branched out to a lot of sub-series! I could see some port/remaster/remake, or even multiple, because that's almost always a good way to celebrate a series. (I have a thread about the idea of a Super Mario 64 Remake, that'd be cool but could interfere with the new 3D Mario) Perhaps Luigi's Mansion 4 could get a tease? Maybe the first trailer for the new Mario Movie? Could they just do the bare minimum for the anniversary? Who knows, there's a lot of possibilities!

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Super Mario RPG, and Mario & Luigi Brothership all on one console is LEGENDARY
