How to buy Super Mario 3D All-Stars (before it disappears forever)
Today is your last chance to buy Super Mario 3D All-Stars for the Switch before Nintendo delists it forever. Here are the best places to buy.
When Nintendo launched Super Mario 3D All-Stars in 2020, it warned that the game would be a 'time-limited' release. That time has now come.
On 1 April, Nintendo will delist the game, along with its other 35th-anniversary titles including Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. (Unfortunately, this is not an April Fools' joke - the products really are disappearing from store shelves.)
This means you have one day left to purchase a digital copy of the game. Physical copies should be available a bit longer, until existing stock dries up.
If you've been tossing up whether or not to get the game, now is the time to act. The price of Super Mario 3D All-Stars is likely to skyrocket in the weeks ahead as resellers attempt to capitalise on the game's discontinued status. In other words, don't delay!
Here are the online stores where you can still purchase Super Mario 3D All-Stars.
