Good grief, another year has passed already?
Yes, it's that time again folks, the most wonderful time of the year for Mario fans across the world: it's MAR10 Day (because March 10th, right? MAR 10... MARIOOOOO)!
If you're in a particularly giving mood today, you might want to check out our rundown of the best Mario-related gift ideas. We've also done a complete ranking of all the mainline Super Mario games, just in case you happen to be missing any gems, not to mention our reader-ranked alternative lists for both the 2D Mario games and the 3D Mario games. So. Many. Mario. Games!
In terms of new Mario games this year, well... we haven't had any yet. However, the first batch of the new Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC tracks is right around the corner, plus we've got Mario Strikers: Battle League and Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope later in the year. Pretty good line-up, we reckon! Although, we could always do with a new 3D Mario title, Nintendo — just saying.
In other news, you can grab yourself a batch of fancy Super Mario Odyssey themed icons via the new 'Missions and Rewards' feature on Nintendo Switch Online.
We'd love to know how you plan on celebrating today; will you be dressing up? Decorating the house? Or simply kicking back with a nice cup of tea and exploring Isle Delfino in Super Mario Sunshine? Pop a comment down below and let us know!
Happy Mario day to all the Mario fans!
Q : We'd love to know how you plan on celebrating today?
Me : Errr..... It's raining outside right now so i'm afraid with the lightning out there that might cause blackout so I think i will play Mario games from 3DS for maintenance.
I probably won't be playing any Mario games today but I would be remiss if I didn't say that the games have had a huge impact on my gaming preferences, ever since I first played Super Mario Bros at my Grandparents' house on their old NES, had to blow on the cartridges to get them to work of course since I didn't know any better at the time.
Will be celebrating MAR10 by playing the plumber's most famous outing, Elden Ring (would love a Torrent Yoshi mod)
I always really love MAR10 day!! Waiting for Nintendo UK to tweet if there will be any Mario sale for us in UK...?
Without Mario and his world the universe would be a darker, sadder, less fun place. There are few things I'm more grateful for in life than the joy that Mario games have brought me in the good times and the bad. Happy Mario Day! Wahoo!
HAPPY 10MAR day, sorry I'm English so its doesn't really work.
I just finished 100% run in Mario Galaxy, perfect timing!
How US centric
@Toads-Friend I couldn't reply on the other article, but I wanted to say thank you for your comment about my birthday today! I really appreciated it 🙂
@Bunkerneath I'm English but although we write 10/03/2022 or 10/MAR/2022, we can say either "10th of March" or "March the 10th". So it works for us as well. Just like May the 4th works.
Sadly, I will not celebrate it. I'm not in mood for this, eh... But, if I'll will be able to play games on console today, at least I can give a try to play and earn a few moons in Super Mario Odyssey.
Hi, are any Mario games going to be discounted in the U.K. today? Either on the Nintendo digital store or retailers like Amazon?
@Toads-Friend I was wondering about that too. I may get Mario Odyssey or Mario Golf if they are reduced.
I don't understand why everyone is so happy during this time, this reminds me of when Mario passed away March 31, 2021. Really saddens me knowing he's gone, he was my role models in life. I think that this shows that no matter how great you are, you will eventually run out of lives.
Wonder if we'll get a trailer for the movie today...
Long work day, but maybe I can get in a little super mario maker 2 tonight.
Personally I want a new 2D Mario game more than 3D-- We've had 3D Mario ports (plus Bowsers fury) most recently but no 2D for about 3 years. I'm of course not counting Mario 35 since Nintendo retracted its existence...
Really though we've gotten 1 and a half truly new mainline 3D Mario games on Switch and 1 2D in 5 years. Since Switch is hanging around for several more years, I'd love one more of each.
How would charles mar10net be today???
MAR10 day, much like Star Wars day is another useful reminder on how America needs to modernise its calendar system to the DDMMYY the rest of the world uses and, for smegs sake adopt the metric system.
happy mario day!
ps - no matter where in the world you are, the only way to write the date that makes actual sense is YYYY MMM DD
2022 Mar 10
its completely unambiguous, requires no punctuation, and keeps alphabetical order if you use numbers for the month, say if you use them at the beginning of filenames in a folder.
2022 03 10
2022 03 11
2022 03 12
and so on.
starting with the day or the month is bonkers! lol
just planting seeds ☺️
@FishyS I hope you enjoy Mario Maker 2, if you do manage to play! 🙌
@Rosalinho Wholesome, happy Mario day! 🍄
Apparently some are pushing March 10 to also be International Men's Day. If Mario is to be the mascot for it, I approve. He's an honest working class man with a heroic streak and very manly mustache!
My contribution to Mario day was buying Mario Kart 8 at last.
I played through several cups of 50cc to get back into the groove since the last time I played Mario Kart was 7 on the 3DS... and I think I only played that for like... an hour?
But it's really fun, won't lie. Can't wait to get to the faster difficulties where it gets REAL fun.

@Browny Aw yay, enjoy!
I will be eating the annual feast of St Mario meal with my family, and then gathering around the fire place to sing St Mario Day carols.
Happy Mario Day everyone! Wearing my Princess Peach sweatshirt and playing some Super Mario Advance 4 on Wii U, hoping to get around to Super Mario 3D World with a friend online later on Switch.
The Peach shirt I have on is Christmas themed, as she's in a wreath, but it's chilly for the short sleeve one, so wearing that today instead.
I'm American and I'm with you. I do prefer what @-wc- proposes, though (and we can keep MAR10 day that way, too). Also non-liquid ingredients should be in weight measurements, lumber dimensions shouldn't be labeled so silly or tenths of a cent used in advertising gas prices, etc. Society is slow to change, however, and needs a reason to care.
I'm probably gonna play some Super Mario Land 2 on the 3DS and try to defeat Wario.
I will celebrate with the ACT. Such fun.
I will celebrate by doing more schoolwork because the quarter is almost over… yay…
This weekend I’ll probably put in some Mario Maker 2 and have fun with that.
Happy Mario Day everyone! I'll probably boot up Super Mario 3D World or Super Mario Bros 3, maybe both.
Here's hoping we get more announcements from Nintendo besides the one for LEGO Peach...
Happy Mario day. Here’s a 1UP
Enjoying Marios on Wii u
@RadioHedgeFund On the contrary, couldn't it support the opposite? The American format is fun with MAR10 Day and May the 4th.
Happy Mar10 Day and thanks for the memories!
Happy MAR10. https://m.imgur.com/gallery/w1Qybnx Can’t be bothered to make it an actual image right now.
Edit: Might boot up the old Wii U for some Mario U or 3D world. Or play U Deluxe and buy 3D World +. Either way tbf.
I'm still saddened that Mario never came to my house last night to leave MAR10 day presents under my MAR10 day tree, maybe next year
That's odd. It's 10MAR day where I live, aka not in the US. It still works in verlan, but you need to be from the right country, not too old, but old enough to know what it is.
im a carpenter, and I FEEL you regarding lumber! if you want 1" thick boards, you have to order FIVE quarters LOL.
Happy days are here again
