The Super Mario 3D All-Stars went viral as soon as it was announced, and not for the better, and it was discovered that this game for the Nintendo Switch was not a port of the original games, knowing that Nintendo only limited itself to taking the ROMs originals of the games and has emulated them on his console by adding the landscape mode to fit the widescreen format of the Nintendo Switch.
The worst of all this is that for said “work” they charged 59.99 euros. Come on, 60 euros for simply loading some existing ROMs on the Internet and emulating them on your console with a widescreen format.
Now, two months after its launch, we can say that Nintendo is geniuses since they managed to get 5.2 million Nintendo Switch players to buy the game during the first two weeks of its launch, that is, a turnover of more of 250 million euros to take some existing ROMs for more than a decade, so you have to take your hat off to Nintendo since it makes it clear that the users of its console buy anything without caring about opinions.
On the other hand, the company’s financial report reveals that it has managed to exceed 68 million Nintendo Switch consoles sold (6.85 million Switch and Switch Lite during Q3 2020); Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Animal Crossing, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate surpassed the barrier of 20 million copies sold, and three other games are about to reach that barrier: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (19.74 million ), Pokémon Sword and Shield (19.02 million) and Super Mario Odyssey (18.99 million).
