Original: Switch could be getting a whole lot of Super Mario love this year. According to a VGC report, Nintendo is preparing to re-release most of the plumber’s 35-year back catalog, now remastered for Switch. That’s based on information received from “multiple sources”.

VGC’s report mentions a new event from Nintendo that will coincide with Super Mario’s anniversary. The company’s plans are supposedly “set to be revealed alongside new details of Nintendo’s partnership with Universal, and the pair’s Super Nintendo World theme park attractions and animated Super Mario movie.” Nintendo was apparently planning a physical event at E3 2020 in June, but the expo has been cancelled and the Big N “is now reviewing its plans in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.”

Along with plans for re-releases, VGC mentions that “several other Mario titles” are in the works for 2020. A new Paper Mario is specifically mentioned in the report.
