The 35th-anniversary celebrations for Super Mario Bros. continue with the release of Super Mario 3D All-Stars on Nintendo Switch.
This week’s highest-profile Nintendo Switch release is the three-game compilation, Super Mario 3D All-Stars. Yes, the game’s arbitrary release window is silly. And yes, it would have been nice if Nintendo had upgraded these games in a more meaningful way. Nonetheless, they are all stone-cold classics – even Super Mario Sunshine – and the prospect of revisiting them on Switch is undeniably appealing.
Aside from Super Mario’s return, there’s a mixed bag of new Nintendo Switch releases. Springloaded’s Gorsd looks interesting. Billed as “intense arena combat, set deep inside the heart of darkness,” the game is based around a single bullet mechanic and features strangely unsettling pixel art graphics.
Georifters also looks fun. It’s a chaotic and colourful arena platformer that blends fighting and environmental manipulation. Like Gorsd, it supports up to four local players.
Other new Nintendo Switch releases include Fight Crab, Journey of the Broken Circle, and WWE 2K Battlegrounds. We’ll update this article throughout the week with any late additions.
