It’s been a big morning for Mario fans, with the reveals of Super Mario 3D All-Stars, Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, Super Mario All-Stars on Switch, and Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. If that’s not enough, Nintendo also announced Super Mario Bros. 35, a 35-player free-for-all that’s reminiscent of Tetris 99’s online mayhem, but for Mario.
Like the name indicates, 35 players compete in a race to see who can survive the longest. As players run through classic Super Mario Bros. levels, enemies they defeat will be launched into their opponents’ screens, adding to the chaos. It looks like either the greatest idea ever (when you’re winning) or a completely terrible mess (when you aren’t).
Super Mario Bros. 35 is coming exclusively to Nintendo Switch Online subscribers starting October 1. It won’t cost members anything more than their existing subscription fees, but it’s only going to be live until March 31, 2021 – so be sure to get your fill of it when it does become available for download.
