Nintendo is remastering numerous Super Mario games for Switch this year

Nintendo plans to re-release a number of titles in its Super Mario catalogue to Switch systems this year.

According to a report from VGC, multiple sources have confirmed the game company's plans to remaster titles from the 35 year-old franchise. Eurogamer has additionally confirmed these remasters will include 1997's Super Mario 64, 2002's Super Mario Sunshine, and 2007's Super Mario Galaxy.

A new instalment of Paper Mario and a deluxe version of 2013's Super Mario 3D World are also allegedly in the works.

The Super Mario 35th Anniversary reveal was initially set to take place during E3 2020, prior to the event's cancellation due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The company has said it will continue to be “flexible and redirect” efforts to “other ways” to keep people abreast of its activities and products, adding it will not likely attend industry events for the “foreseeable future.”
