    Mario’s 25th Anniversary Boxset Coming To The UK
    Coming December 3rd
    [​IMG]

    Nintendo has announced that a special Mario 25th Anniversary boxset will be heading to the UK on December 3rd for the Wii – well that’s my Christmas present sorted then! It has also been listed on Nintendo’s Swedish website – so hopefully the rest of Europe will be getting it too.

    The boxset will include the Super Mario All Stars game, a 25 years of Mario history booklet – featuring unseen artwork and development materials - and a soundtrack CD featuring classic Mario themes from the past 25 years.

    For those of you who aren’t aware, Super Mario All Stars is a compilation featuring some of Mario’s finest moments – Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Bros. 3, and Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels.[/p]

    Yeah, they should release a cheaper version with just the soundtrack and book for people that already have the games. But for people that don't have them, this is pretty cool.

    Wasn't there a Super Mario All-Stars + World game that came out after All-Stars...?

    Wonder why they wouldn't throw World on there to make it a truer, more complete set...? [​IMG]

    I may get it at a good price and if its packaged well, I'm a sucker for these collectors things.

    I was just wondering this exact thing myself. I figured they would've just lumped it into All-Stars and dropped the "+World" from the title, but alas, no.

    i think its shocking the whole "what can we roll out fast and with minimum work" there's no updates or anything all they have done is made a loader screen and dumped some roms on a disc and will expect people to pay £30 to £40 for it

    they could have at least remade them using the NSMBW engine or something i mean the record for making SMB 1-1 in reggie is around 15 minutes so

    I'll download it when it's out since there is no reason to pay twice. Thank you, release groups.

    And maybe someone offers the booklet as a PDF, too.

    Looks nice!
    I would like to get it. I'm not sure whether I would have enough money, though. I'm more interested in the bonus stuff instead of the main game. Can't wait until it's announced for NA!
