35 players compete in Super Mario Bros. stages to become the last Mario standing.
Nintendo Switch Online users, take note: A new digital-only version of Super Mario Bros. will be coming on October 1st. The twist is that it’s a 35-player battle title with players platforming through the original classic while sabotaging their opponents. Check out the trailer for Super Mario Bros. 35 below.
The premise sees each of the 35 players having the same stage to dash through. Defeating enemies provides more time on the clock while also serving to attack other players. Coins can be acquired to purchase power-ups. Essentially, it’s a battle royale version of Super Mario Bros. and we’re all about it.
While Super Mario Bros. 35 will be free for Nintendo Switch Online members, there is a catch. It will only be playable till March 31st 2021. One has to wonder if it will be removed from the service after that or perhaps repackaged into a standalone game if successful enough. We’ll have to wait and see in the coming months.
In the meantime, check out the announcements for Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury and Super Mario 3D All-Stars. The former arrives on February 12th 2021 while the latter releases on September 18th for Switch.
