We’ve all been joking about Mario dying this week, but the fact of the matter is Nintendo shut the servers down for Super Mario Bros. 35 last night, as well as pulled the digital version of Super Mario 3D All-Stars from the eShop. No one was quite sure if Nintendo was actually going to do it, as they’ve walked back on limited-time games before. But Mario is gone, which means it’s time for the rush for physical copies of the 3D All-Stars collection.
While the game isn’t available digitally anymore, you can still pick up the physical version of Mario 3D All-Stars. But Nintendo says they’re not going to produce any more physical copies, so you’re going to want to pick up a copy before they start to sell out! It’s a pretty great collection, too, featuring Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy! Galaxy 2 is missing for some reason, but other than that, you have a great collection on your hands.
Thankfully, the 3D collection is still available as most retailers. It’s even on sale at a few places! No one really knows Super Mario 3D All-Stars’ stock situation, though, so I wouldn’t recommend gambling on stock any longer if this is a title you want. Heck, you might want to pick up a second copy even, who knows if this will become a collector’s item!
If you’re in the US, Walmart has 3D All-Stars for $49.94. But it’s already sold out at Amazon US, so you know you’ll need to act quick!

Now that you’ve completed the mad rush for Mario 3D All-Stars, it’s time to take advantage of more Nintendo Switch deals! Even better, pick up a good Nintendo Switch screen protector so you can see your Mario games in Handheld Mode nice, clear, and scratch-free.
