Nintendo announces new Super Mario games for the Switch console

It’s hard to believe it’s been 35 years since the original Super Mario Bros game was released in Japan on the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) in 1985. 

To mark the epic 35th anniversary, Nintendo is releasing a handful of new Super Mario video games, including Super Mario 3D All-Stars, Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit and Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros., all of which are now available to pre-order on Amazon.

One of the perks of pre-ordering these games on Amazon is that you’re eligible for Pre-order Price Guarantee. This means you’ll pay the lowest price offered by Amazon UK between the time you place your order up to and including the end of the day of the release date.
