Hey, remember Labyrinth? No, not the Bowie-in-tights movie, the board game from the '80s, with the moving tiles and the maze that you have to navigate. It's getting a new lick of Super Mario paint to celebrate the 35th anniversary of both Super Mario and Labyrinth, which is lovely. The game is playable with 2-4 players and is designed for players aged 7 and up.
Let's take a look at some of that board artwork:
Super Mario Labyrinth is already out in Europe, where it costs £23.99, but will come out on the 8th of September in North America for $34.99. You can pre-order the game via Amazon.

Looks like I have another board game to go with my Monopoly Gamer Editions.
The standard version of this game is pretty fun.
I bet this edition will look nice but I hope it does a bit more than just slap the Mario brand on Labyrinth, maybe like adding power-ups to spice up the gameplay.
Great now I have Magic Dance stuck in my head.
It's just now coming to NA? I got it for my niece for her birthday couple of months ago.
@Elvie There are no gameplay changes.
I want a Super Smash Bros board game complete with miniatures.
That way I can see youtube vids of a Smash bros board game's saltiest moments.
Played the original and 3D version, both were great, but this looks like a reskin, and not a good one. I would stick with the original with much better artwork.
Dance baby dance
I love Labyrinth, but the Mario art they've inbued this one with is just too sterile for me. Seems low-effort and frankly like it would make the game considerably less exciting to play.
Thank you Mario!
But our Princess is in another Labyrinth.
Its practically the same game with a Mario aesthetic. No bad thing there.
Its a very easy photoshop takeover.
"Underground Theme" not included
Wow. I have never heard of the board game Labyrinth. Was it one that was big in the UK and not in the U.S. or Australia? I do remember the OTHER other labyrinths that were semi-popular in the 80s: the big wooden box maze where you controlled the tilt with two knobs and tried to navigate a metal ball from start to finish.
Real shame they didn't go for custom meeples. But then all these Mario board game crossovers have the same generic Mario stock art on them. Would love to see one treated like the Disney Villanous games which are beautiful to look at!
Love Labyrinth. Need this.
@Nitwit13 I don’t think it was super well known in the states. I came across one for the first time in college in the late 90s.
Edit: Apparently it was originally developed in Germany.
I assure you it is a VERY German thing.
@frogopus The babe with the power?
@GloverMist What power?
The colours are bad on this.
The power of voodoo!
I bought plain ol Labyrinth at half off a few years ago when Toys r Us went OOB.
I was saving it for a surprise rainy day activity for the kiddos. It won’t have Mario Bros. but hopefully it’ll be fun anyway 😁
@Teksetter who do?
YOU do!! 😂🎵
My boys love Labyrinth and I was kinda excited for this until I seen it. The tokens should be characters and the spots should be mario related power ups and treasures. This is an ugly cheaper looking version of the original. But this game is fun for the family, just disappointed in what feels like a lack of effort
This looks like it could make a fun little eShop game too.
I need this in my life
@Teksetter DO WHAT???
Remind me of the babe!!! 🎵
I had amazing memories of this game as a kid, and then I bought it as an adult and discovered that it was very different than my childhood memories and much more boring. I mean, it's still pretty okay, but this version actually looks slightly MORE boring somehow.
Next, they should do Zelda based on the original Legend of Zelda.
that was a cheeky reference subtitle, kate ; )
It'd be cool if they made original artwork and not just put random renders on it.
