NPD analyst believes 3D Mario games on Switch will eventually be sold individually


Many of you were disappointed to hear that the Super Mario 3D All-Stars collection for Nintendo Switch would be a time limited affair. Nintendo hasn’t announced exactly why the collection which includes Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy is only available for purchase until March 2021. Mat Piscatella, executive director of games at The NPD Group, believes that the trio of games will most likely appear as individual titles on the Switch eShop for customers to purchase individually. This is just an educated guess as Nintendo hasn’t clarified what will happen to Switch collection after March 2021.

“I don’t think these games will disappear, like what would happen with the old school Disney Vault,” he said. “But I think there may be additional flexibility and buying options. For example, à la carte purchasing options on eShop. The sales of Super Mario 3D All-Stars should provide additional confidence in bringing other legacy titles to the new platforms, to say the least. But again, it’s Nintendo, so I expect to be surprised.”
