Not unexpectedly, the Nintendo Direct issued to celebrate the 35th anniversary of Super Mario has left us without surprises. After many rumors, Nintendo has finally made public the intentions with its most charismatic character. In addition to announcing Super Mario 3D All-Stars with three classic plumbers or Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury bringing the game from Wii U to Switch, the event has also had the most surprising announcements.
The best example is Super Mario Bros. 35, a very particular game that gets on the battle-royale bandwagon. Or something similar. The game will be a competitive multiplayer proposal that will be available only to subscribers of Nintendo Switch Online.
The proposal will face other players and the enemies that are defeated will go to the levels of other players. Similar to what happened in Tetris 99. Using an item wheel and different strategies, players must take advantage of these options to gain an advantage and become the last player standing. Mario approaches the subgenre for the first time with content loaded with originality.
Of course, as we see from the official Nintendo website, Super Mario Bros. 35 is a title only in digital format and will be available to download and play only from October 1 to March 31, 2021. Hinting which in April 2021 will cease to be active. Without a doubt, one of the most peculiar games of the Mario saga.
