At the end of last month, VGC published a report claiming Nintendo was set to remaster the majority of Super Mario's catalogue to celebrate the series 35th anniversary this year. It was then backed up by Eurogamer, and after this VentureBeat's staff writer Jeff Grubb chimed in with information from his own source.
One of the games said to be making a return was the Wii U outing, Super Mario 3D World. According to Jeff's source (that recently called the Indie World and Nintendo Direct), there's a possibility of 3D World getting its own Deluxe release - a bit like New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe. It sent speculation wild, and since then, fans have been searching for extra clues. Well-known Nintendo fan and Twitter user Wario64 has now turned the attention to a not yet "activated" listing on the Best Buy website:
Retailer listings and leaks are often a good indication if a game or announcement is on the way, and we've seen this in the past with titles like The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt - Complete Edition. Unfortunately, the US-based retailer Best Buy does not have the strongest track record on the Switch front.
It previously listed games like Metroid Prime Trilogy and Persona 5 for the Nintendo Switch, and 12 months later there's still no official word. Former Best Buy employees have even stated in the past that the company adds games all the time based on rumours.
What do you think, though? Given the previous reports, is this perhaps something more? Share your thoughts below.
