Japan gets two Mario games on Wii this year, but Super Mario Collection Special Pack isn’t exactly new. The Super Nintendo game, better known as Super Mario All-Stars overseas, is being re-released on a Wii disc with bonuses for Mario fans.
Nintendo packed in a soundtrack CD that covers the original Super Mario Bros. all the way up to Super Mario Galaxy 2. The booklet may be the highlight of the package since it contains unreleased artwork. Players can use the Wii remote, Classic Controller or Nintendo Gamecube controller to run through Mario’s history.
Super Mario Collection Special Pack will be released on October 21 for 2,500 yen ($29).
Nintendo is also throwing a 25th anniversary contest for the Super Mario Bros. series by giving away King of Games t-shirts, tote bags, and playing cards.
To enter the contest you need to buy and register a Mario game to a Japanese club Nintendo account. Super Mario Collection Special Pack, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Mario Kart Wii, New Super Mario Bros., Mario Kart DS, and Mario Party DS are eligible products.
