Super Mario 3D All-Stars Retail Download Codes Will Still Work After March 31
Despite Nintendo’s plan to remove Super Mario 3D All-Stars from Nintendo Switch’s eShop and to cease production of physical copies on March 31, the company has confirmed that retail download codes will still be valid past that date.
As reported by VGC, Nintendo’s Japan HQ confirmed that these codes will be redeemable “after April,” and it would be safe to assume this would be the same for Western markets as well.
It’s a small bit of good news for those who have yet to purchase Super Mario 3D All-Stars, but those interested shouldn’t waste time picking up the game if they wish to as March 31 is only seven days away.
Super Mario 3D All-Stars’ release was part of the celebration of the 35th anniversary of Super Mario Bros. on the NES. When the Mario party ends on March 31 – the day the internet has dubbed “The Day Mario Dies” – Super Mario 3D All-Stars will be gone alongside the battle royale-esque Super Mario Bros. 35., the Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. device, and themed merchandise.
If you’ve been waiting to purchase this collection that includes Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy, Nintendo has supported it with updates like adding inverted camera controls and GameCube controller support for Super Mario Sunshine.
