Mark your calendars, because a brand new Nintendo Direct is about to drop! In two weeks time, we will get the debut of the “final” trailer for the Super Mario Bros. Movie, and Nintendo is promising us something special with no announced game information to be included.
Whether you’ve never had the chance to experience a Super Mario Bros. movie before, or if you’re a long-time fan of the series, this Direct is sure to have plenty in store for you. Get ready for a fantastic, karting-themed teaser image featuring the beloved characters of the Mushroom Kingdom as they race over Rainbow Road, with Mario at the lead and a pesky blue shell in pursuit!
For those of you familiar with the annual MAR10 Day celebrations, you may recall that they are typically filled with several incentives and goodies related to the iconic franchise, such as discounted games, Mario Kart Tour and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp events, and announcements of new LEGO Mario sets. This year’s event will be no different, as a number of activity promotions and peripherals are rumored to be in the works.
To add to the excitement, it appears that a new Nintendo Switch bundle is also set to drop, featuring a red Switch console, Super Mario Odyssey, and something related to the movie itself. A leak from a GameStop employee and tech leaker billbill_kun have indicated that this bundle will have a price tag of around €269, at least in France.
So treat yourself to an exciting experience as you peer into the journey of Sakurai and the Mushroom Kingdom led by Mario on March 9 at 2pm PT / 5pm ET / 10 pm GMT for the Super Mario Bros. Movie Direct and join us in celebration of the world’s most beloved platformer!
