The Super Mario Bros. franchise is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year, and Nintendo is going all out to celebrate. In addition to remasters of the classic 3D games and even a new battle royale title, Nintendo is sharing the Mario love with their other franchises.
Announced during today’s Mario Direct, a collaboration between Super Mario Bros. and Animal Crossing: New Horizons will take place in March 2021. Fans were expecting the return of the iconic mustached furniture, but we now have confirmation:
Animal Crossing already has a lengthy history of crossing the streams with other Nintendo franchises. I remember Master Sword being the centerpiece of my home in the original game, and hopefully, this update will inspire a new generation of Nintendo-inspired home decoration.
Aside from sprucing up your island home, Nintendo also revealed the return of several classic Mario games to Nintendo Switch today: Super Mario 3D All-Stars bundles in Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy all for Nintendo Switch and is coming later this month; and Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury brings the Wii U classic back with new content and online multiplayer in February 2021.
