Super Mario 3D All-Stars: The game will be available for purchase from April onwards

A loophole confirms a glimmer of availability even after April for Super Mario 3D All-Stars, straddling the physical and digital

Nintendo’s controversial choice of pick up Super Mario 3D All-Stars from April onwards has been met with an avalanche of criticism, but the Big N does not intend to make a meager hint of the turnaround. On the contrary, as the tweet that we will report below indicates, the intention is to remove the game – which includes 64, Sunshine and Galaxy – from both real and virtual shelves when time runs out. Despite this strategy, the physical format however, it will remain available later, albeit in the sordid monopoly of private retailers. For the digital formatHowever, today a ray of sunshine makes its way through the clouds.

April, sweet digital version of Super Mario 3D All-Stars

What many physical format purists are hating on Nintendo Switch are cardless games in the box, opting instead for a download code; nevertheless, even Super Mario 3D All-Stars is available in this “hybrid” sales format, which the arrival of April will not be able to de-legitimize. In other words, therefore, if you can find a download code for the game in a store, there will be no calendar that holds: the game will still be yours. We do not guarantee the price you will find it at, but the Big N has confirmed that this indirect method will remain valid.

The speech changes (for the worse) if we look at the other celebratory titles involved. In the case of the Game & Watch dedicated to the plumber, in fact, the arrival of April will only mark the end of production. You can therefore find it (at questionable prices) among the touts. The most sensational victim of the end of March, however, is Super Mario Bros. 35: the battle royale of the Big N will close the servers next week, thus removing any reason to stay there for the copies in our consoles. As a rear end, we also mention the former Fire Emblem, also on the avenue of the sunset despite the lack of correlation with the Mario series.
