After revealing the Super Mario Collection Special Pack
on its release calendar, Nintendo of Japan has officially announced the title and opened a website
to celebrate the 25th anniversary
of everyone's favorite mustachioed plumber. As speculated previously, the pack includes a port of Super Mario All-Stars
, a booklet about the history of the Mario
series and a CD, which contains Mario music ranging from the original Super Mario Bros.
to this summer's Super Mario Galaxy 2
. The website also shows off plenty of celebratory swag that Nintendo will be giving away.
Super Mario Collection
will be released in Japan on October 21 for ¥2,500 ($30). No announcement has been made regarding a North American version of the collection, though it seems like a no-brainer given how successful recent Mario
titles have been. Check out a video of the collection after the break.
