A Celebration Collection
This collectible package features four classic Mario™ games, a
soundtrack CD and an illustrated commemorative booklet. It’s a special
collection of some never-before-seen items released in honor of the 25th
anniversary of the original Super Mario Bros.™ game on the
Nintendo Entertainment System™.
The games included in the Super Mario All-Stars Limited Edition
Super Mario Bros.: This is the game that started it all. It
features now-iconic Mushroom Kingdom characters like Mario, Bowser™,
Princess Peach™, Toad™ Goombas and Koopas. This game set the standard
for all future platforming games.
Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels: Originally released in
Japan as Super Mario Bros.® 2, this game has only brief
cameo appearances in the Western Hemisphere. Mario fans will
appreciate the familiar look and feel of the game.
Super Mario Bros. 2: This time, Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach
and Toad have little more than vegetables to defend themselves with.
Each character has a unique set of abilities: Luigi can jump higher
and farther, Toad can dig extremely fast and pull items out of the
ground quicker, Princess Peach is the only one who can jump and hover
temporarily and Mario has the most balanced skills.
Super Mario Bros. 3: This installment introduced new elements
like the Tanooki Suit and Koopalings. Mario must battle new enemies,
returning favorites and a new Koopaling in each unique and distinctive
world on his way to ultimately taking on Bowser himself. Fly above the
action using the Super Leaf, swim faster by donning the Frog Suit or
defeat enemies using the Hammer Suit.
Each game features the enhanced graphics and updated sound from the
Super NES™ Super Mario All-Stars game.
All four games can be played on the Wii system using one of several
controllers: the Wii Remote™ controller, Classic Controller™, Classic
Controller Pro™ or the Nintendo GameCube™ controller.
Also included is a Super Mario History soundtrack CD, a compilation of
memorable music from the Mario franchise. Containing classic theme
songs and fun sound effects from the original Super Mario Bros.
game all the way up to the acclaimed Super Mario Galaxy™ 2
game, this special disc also marks the first official release of the
“Super Mario Bros. Ground Theme” in North America, widely recognized
as one of the most famous pieces of video game music in history.
Rounding out the Super Mario All-Stars Limited Edition is a
32-page Super Mario History booklet featuring interviews,
behind-the-scenes details and rare concept art. Fans from every
generation can enjoy firsthand insights into the beginnings of Mario,
illustrated with candid photos and never-before-seen design sketches.
