Update: Gematsu says it has heard similar things regarding Super Mario 3D World Deluxe, a new Paper Mario title, and high-definition remasters of Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy.


Original: Eurogamer has published a new report backing up speculation from VGC that a slew of Mario re-releases are on the way for Switch.

The site’s report names Super Mario Galaxy as one of the games Nintendo is planning for a remaster. Additionally, we’ll be seeing “a couple of other 3D Mario favorites.”

Update: There’s been another report about this, now naming Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario 3D World as re-releases. Read up on it here.


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.

Once again, it seems we have confirmation of a game coming to Nintendo Switch through it receiving an age rating. This time, the ESRB has rated John Wick Hex for Nintendo Switch. This is an action strategy game set in the John Wick universe, which was originally released for PC in October of last year. As always, this isn’t an official announcement just yet, but it’s extremely likely that the game will be released on the Switch. It received an “M” rating from the ESRB for “Blood, Strong Language & Violence”; here’s their overview of the game:

This is a tactical action game in which players assume the role of John Wick on a quest to rescue characters from an enemy. From a top-down perspective, players infiltrate night clubs and criminal strongholds using a tactical grid system to move through the environment. As players encounter enemy thugs, they use a menu system to perform tactical actions (e.g., strike, takedown, parry, shot). Shooting enemies can result in cries of pain and brief splashes of blood; some still-images depict enemies laying in pools of blood. The word “f**k” is heard in the game.
