@OctolingKing13 I’d love a DK/Luigi’s Mansion show! I thought DK was really good in the movie so I’d love if he got either his own show or even a movie (possibly with more Kongs and maybe even King K. Rool!). Luigi was also really cool in the Mario Movie, and Luigi’s Mansion would make a great show/movie as well. Boo felt rejected for the Mario Movie, but having a show or movie for Luigi’s Mansion could bring more attention to the species! There’s so many possibilities for Mario universe Movies/Shows!

@PikminMarioKirby I think they'd start the celebrations in March considering they've been making a big deal about Mario Day. Like this year they chose to split their announcements between individual reveals, Mario Day news and a February Partner Showcase instead of doing a normal February general Direct.

I’m gonna try to do a small nintendo tour. Figure I will go to the park in CA and Nintendo NY and probably do a weekend in Tokyo and hit up Nintendo Tokyo.
I imagine there will be themed merch.

@Grumblevolcano Yeah this year they had Mario Movie follow-up announcement and TTYD/LM2HD Release date reveals on Mario Day. They could definitely do it on Mario Day, although June could maybe continue the celebration. I thought there were reports that Nintendo E3 2020 was supposed to have a lot of the Mario stuff, although E3 was canceled that year.

@PikminMarioKirby GAME (the UK retailer) did leak that Lego Mario was meant to be announced in a Direct in March back in 2020. May have been that the original plan was March general Direct on Mario Day with some Mario announcements (e.g. Lego Mario, Origami King, merch and events like presence at the Olympics) and then have more stuff at E3 including the Mario themed booth.

The March Direct Mini that ended up airing in March 2020 did feel cut off like how the "one more thing" was just info on Pokemon DLC.

@Grumblevolcano Yeah I could see it looking similar to that where we hear some Mario stuff on Mario Day, but then hear even more in a June Direct. Although my guess is that the next 3D Mario will be revealed by then!

Mario 35th celebration was half a fiscal year - September 30 to Mar 31, but of course who knows what the schedule would have looked like without covid.

The Mario movie comes out April 3rd 2026, so 3 days after the 35th anniversary might end. So we will certainly get plenty of trailers during the anniversary.

I had originally hoped we would basically re-get stuff from the last two anniversaries - Galaxy 2 finally with or without a 3D all stars re-release, Mario maker 3, and some new Mario-35-like game. Nintendo World Championship makes me feel the last is now unlikely because they are trying a different racing style. The first 2 seem less likely now simply because of the timing of Switch 2 — if a new Mario Kart and 3D mario come 'naturally' that year with Switch 2, do we really even need much else? Perhaps Galaxy 2 has a chance to come anyways so that the Switch-1 owners also get a Mario platformer. Granted this all also depends on the release date of Switch 2.

@FishyS Yeah I think Origami King was probably going to be a part of the celebration, but since they moved the celebration to later, they decided just to just drop the trailer on it’s own. I think that March/June/September all have possibilities for the anniversary to be celebrated, although I think September was chosen for the 35th anniversary was because it was a weird year.

To me it feels like it’s pretty much guaranteed we’ll get a trailer for the Movie at somepoint during the celebration, it would actually be hard to avoid!

A Mario Maker 3 announcement would be a great way to celebrate (and I believe it would be 10 years since the original!) the anniversary, I could see them at least announcing it during the celebrations. We don’t really know what 2D games will come out for Switch’s Successor early on, and Mario Maker 3 is a perfect fit. Could also bring an early online-focused game.

For Galaxy 2, I like the idea of giving Switch 1 owners a 3D Mario. I could actually see that happening, hopefully with a 3D All-Stars re-release.
