Unfortunately, this seems to be a recurring strategy for Nintendo as of late, and it's really pissing me off.

Recently, to celebrate Mario's 35th anniversary, Nintendo dropped Super Mario 3D All-Stars, a collection of three remastered 3D Mario games (64, Sunshine, and Galaxy) as well as Super Mario Bros. 35, a free-to-play (as long as you're subscribed to NSO) version of the original Super Mario Bros. that's been retooled into a competitive multiplayer battle royale, similar to Tetris 99, where 35 concurrent players try to outlast each other in the classic game. However, due to this apparent new marketing strategy that Nintendo has begun to employ for any sort of rerelease of their retro back catalogue, these games will only be available until the end of March next year.

In other words, you have until April 2021 to purchase 3D All-Stars for your personal collection until you won't find it in stores anymore. As for Mario 35, because this game is exclusively digital, the game will simply poof out of existence, so that nobody will get to play it anymore. This is fucking AIDS for obvious reasons, and the trend does seem to be continuing for this Fire Emblem localization, coming out on December 4.

To be positive for a sec, the fact that they're localizing this game at all is pretty damn cool for a retro gamer such as myself, and for someone who's never really cared about the Mother series, you could actually say that this game is like my Mother 3. It's that exciting for me, because I've been waiting SO LONG to play the original Fire Emblem game in a language that I can understand. I just kind of hate knowing that I'll inevitably be forced to challenge my own principles with this one, because my inevitable purchase of this localization will inevitably feed into this new anti-consumer practice that Nintendo has adopted for their retro games. Kinda makes me sick, and sours what is otherwise fairly exciting news for Fire Emblem fans and fans of old-ass games alike.

Wow I'm so glad Nintendo has set this fucking precident.

I can't wait for Prime Trillogy Remastered to be revealed to have a 32 second pre order window and if you miss it you're legally banned from ever playing any Metroid game other than Federation Force ever again.

Yeah, it kinda fucking blows. I fully expect Mother 3 to get this treatment, too. It's practically guaranteed.

Adding to the Fire Emblem situation, the original game has actually been available on the Famicom version of the NES service on Nintendo Switch Online since March of last year. Anyone can download the Famicom app if they set up a Japanese account on their system, and they'll be able to play the original FE right now (albeit in Japanese) so long as they maintain their subscription.

In other words, there's literally no reason for this. It's transparently just a scummy move on Nintendo's part. I can't spin it in a way that's positive for anybody.

i normally NEVER give a fuck about these, but this one seemed too nifty to pass up

if i don't end up getting it, it just means i get to save $45 more bucks

Well, I was able to snag one.



Not the most amazing collector's edition, but I think that replica NES cartridge will look nice with my other stuff, and I'm sure the art book is cool. Manuals rock, too. Supposed to arrive January 2nd, but hopefully it comes sooner.
