Nintendo’s shown off a Super Mario Bros. Anniversary Edition to mark the game’s 25th birthday.

Super Mario Bros. first released on September 13, 1985, going on to sell more than 40 million units.

It was the biggest selling game of all time, bested only by Wii Sports in 2009.

The new pack is covered by the logo trademarked last week by Nintendo.

It’s out on October 21 for Wii, priced 2,500 yen.

There’s no word there of an international launch.

    I can’t help feeling that re-releasing the same game over half a dozen times (conservative estimate) on a variety of Nintendo platforms has significantly contributed to “biggest selling game of all time” status.

    In much the same way that Wii Sports isn’t actually ‘sold’ in the West so much as ‘given away’ – making that game’s sales accolade somewhat suspect too.

    Still, excellent show of capitalism Nintendo. Bravo! ;)

    They are putting it out again?

    I already have the VC one, kind of seems a bit silly. But I am sure collectors will eat it up.

    wOOt me too.

    I even have the original NES Cart. Of course to use it I have to use one of those Yobo NES knock off top loaders. But the game plays great!

    This is just a cheap cash-in. It’s the 25th Anniversary for goodness sake, Nintendo could have at least made an effort.

    It’s just a Snes ROM in fancy packaging. They could’ve bundled in Super Mario World and Yoshi’s Island (SMW 2) with those games.

    When it reaches the UK Nintendo will probably want £30/40 for it. In that case they can fuck off with such dodgy shenanigans.

    I’ll give this a miss regardless of the price…

    I was thinking Super Mario was coming out as a covert member of the polit bureau.

    That would certainly explain the cossack ‘stache.
