Super Mario All-Stars Remake set for the Nintendo Wii?

Super-Mario-Allstars-WiiOh the power of blogging. Nintendo held it's regular retailer briefings in Japan earlier today, letting slip that a Wii game by the name of Super Mario Mario Collection will be arriving soon to mark Mario's 25th anniversary. Within minutes the news was widespread with many speculating it's a remake of Super Mario All-Stars.

Add us to that list. The title Super Mario Collection is none other than the Japanese name for Super Mario All-Stars, released on the Super Famicom. Featuring a compilation of the first three Mario games and what's more commonly known as The Lost Levels, we can only hope that this is really happening.


Following the mass speculation online, Nintendo shortly followed up and directly responded. Nintendo have now stated that a game by that name is indeed coming out, but are yet to say if it is a remake of the SNES hit. Retails are also now suggesting the game is set to come with a Soundtrack CD and booklet of some sort. More news as we have it!

It looks and plays great but is a sad thing that this is what Nintendo released for Mario's 25th anniversary.
It should have been a collection of everything, 8bit, 16bit, handheld, Snes, Nes, N64, Gameboy/Color/Advance, I mean, why not?
They are all on Virtual Console already, they can charge as much as they like too, pop in Luigis Mansion for good luck, a nice big hardback art book, reproductions of the game manuals for key games like Super Mario World.
If it cost 150 I'd pay it for a collection like that.
As it stands, charging 30 euros for a game that you can still pick up as a cart, with the console to play it on for similar money, is madness, and an insult to retro gamers.
The soundtrack disk remains as the only reason to buy and I'm not paying 30 for that, I'll wait for a preowned copy...
