Are you ordering something from Amazon this month? If you’re lucky, it might arrive in a Super Mario Bros. branded box.
Nintendo and Amazon haven’t always seen eye to eye, leading to stock shortages for games and consoles on more than one occasion. For the moment, however, they are playing nice with a couple of promotions in honour of the 35th anniversary of Super Mario Bros.
This November there’s a chance that any product ordered from Amazon in the US will be delivered in a Super Mario branded box. The boxes are bright red, illustrated with images of Mario and Luigi, and bound to become super collectable.
Don’t go mad buying Switch accessories though, a note on the My Nintendo Missions website states that the delivery boxes will be used entirely at random.
“If you order from Amazon this November, your package may be delivered in a Super Mario Bros. branded box. Note that the Super Mario Bros. branded Amazon boxes are in limited quantity and will be used randomly, while supplies last. Purchasing Nintendo products will not increase the possibility of receiving a Super Mario Bros. branded box.”
Here’s hoping that our PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X pre-orders arrive in one of these beautiful creations, assuming they are big enough.
Amazon is also hosting a themed Super Mario Bros. 35th Anniversary store page. It’s a beautiful timeline of the franchise, illustrated with links to various Nintendo products and some secret snippets of trivia to discover. By visiting the page, My Nintendo members can earn 100 Platinum Points.
Nintendo has also marked Mario’s birthday with the release of Super Mario 3D All-Stars, Super Mario Bros. 35, and a Game & Watch replica releasing on November 13.
