Super Mario All-Stars 25th Anniversary Edition Hops, Skips And Jumps To Europe

By Ishaan . October 7, 2010 . 12:58pm


Eager to please as always, Nintendo of Europe just announced that the celebratory Super Mario All-Stars pack is headed to PAL territories under the name “Super Mario All-Stars – 25th Anniversary Edition.”


As expected, you’ll get Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels all on one disc, but NOE are also throwing in the same bonus items as NCL in Japan — a CD with music spanning 25 years of Mario games and the special history booklet.


Super Mario All-Stars – 25th Anniversary Edition will be out on December 3rd in Europe.

    Now to wait for a US release…… Please

  • Japan? Check, Europe? Check, North America? Unchecked ok NOA time to say something about this soon.

    • Nintendo of America would be fiendish to not bring this out here.

      • Bah, I preordered the Japanese version as soon as it was announced just in case.

    • Is there seriously no announced release for this in the US yet? Man.

      Well, English-language box art exists for the set now, so I am taking that as a bit of a hint :V

  • Nintendo of America better bring this out here, but in a month other than December 2010 because this fall is already breaking my bank.

    Much love for Nintendo Europe. These guys just keep getting better and better. I hope Nintendo Australia have an Aus release planned but so long as there is a PAL version out there I can still import. :D

  • AdamBoy64

    If we (and by we, I mean Europe/Australia) get this, then you’d say it’s a near certainty for the US.

  • malek86

    I still say that, for supposedly 30€ (really doubt this will cost any less), they should at least give us World and 64 too.Also, ten bucks says we’ll get the crap 50hz versions, like all VC games. Hopefully not, but I don’t believe it.

  • Honestly wouldn’t want to buy this game for more than £20. The only reason is that I bought a boxed snes version of all star which cost me a somewhat a fortune.

  • Nintendo of America….seriously, if u don’t bring this or if we get this last, I’ll never forgive u guys…

    Aw who am I kidding, I’ll forgive u guys. XD But seriously, bring this to North America.

  • Chow

    Are you sure you can fit all that on one disc? whoamg!

    • Oh, easily. If it’s the original NES versions each game is less than a megabyte in size. (Fun fact: the original Super Mario Bros., one of the best-selling videogames ever made, is 40 kilobytes in size, all told.) Even the old All-Stars version from the 90s SNES would be no more than 5-6MB.

      If anything I’m sharing in the disappointment of a few other posters: I wish we could get World, Yoshi’s Island and SM64 on there too. All of them could easily fit on a Wii DVD.

      • Please spread this reply around as many people are begging for more games when there is a great reason for it sticking to the first 4.

        First of, Ninty is celebrating the NES’ 25th anniversary as well so the disc will include nothing but NES titles. Makes since?

        A better explanation is that Ninty wanted the most accessible collection possible for a Wii owner. All four of these games can be played with the Wii remote, the one controller EVERY Wii owner has. To add anything else will force consumers to buy a Classic controller or hunt for GC one and spend more money just to play some of the games.

  • Jaxx-Leviathan

    Hyes! thank you, NoE!

  • ZomaNeko

    Wow this box set looks really pretty and cool! And yeah, this is one of the few times when PAL gets lucky, and they get something before we do I guess x: (In addition to all those juicy limited editions they get, some which even the Japanese don’t get). But I’m sure we’ll get this! I just hope we get the same contents. By the way, did anyone else think “Hop, step, jump” from Shugo Chara when they read the title?

  • I am buying this just for the soundtrack.

  • All I kno is that since JApan n Europe have been announced n NA is still waitin we shud get an EXTRA bonus just 4 us being the last to be announced(if so)

  • HPN

    Man, I so want this collection and the red 25th anniversary Wii! Here’s hoping
    NoA brings both over.

  • Man, I just hope this works with Gecko OS (I had to uncensor Manhunt 2 somehow…)

  • Joanna

    Why is NoA being sucky again?
    *pouts in a corner*

    • I think they are spending more time on trying to figure out how to fill the positions of their missing execs. Though would not NoJ decide if NoA can even bring this game over here?

      • Joanna

        From what I understand, NoJ has the final word, but NoA does have input as well. NoJ can tell NoA to localize stuff, like they did with Girls Mode/Savvy Styles, but for the most part it’s NoA deciding what to localize with sales criteria and the like. So basically, NoA proposes a game with reasons x,y, and z and NoJ approves or rejects it for localization. So for one, NoA could try to convince NoJ that they should try this game in the North American market. If they don’t try to convince NoJ, it won’t get localized. Then there are also dropped localizations like ASH (it showed up on ESRB so NoA did have approval to begin localization but dropped it for whatever reason).

        Any way, this is Mario so I don’t see why NoJ would stop NoA from localizing this, especially since NoE is publishing this already. So I am almost certain that the blame for the lack of this title lies squarely at the doorsteps of NoA.
