Ever since Nintendo pulled production of its limited edition Wii re-release of Super Mario All-Stars, copies of the highly-sought-after game have been selling on Ebay for as much as $80. Now, Nintendo has announced that it will give the game one last run.
The game, which is a port of the classic 1993 SNES title of the same name, includes historic Mario entries from the NES days including Super Mario Bros, Super Mario Bros 2, and Super Mario Bros 3. It also includes a small booklet featuring the history of Mario, as well as a music CD of some of the most famous Mario tunes.
It was originally meant to only be briefly available for the holidays, but demand was high enough that Nintendo said last month that it would consider reprinting it, which it has now confirmed it will do.
The new copies will start shipping March 13, and will sell at the same price - $30. If you really want it (and it's debatable whether or not you should), don't wait - Nintendo has said that this will be the final printing.
Check out our take on the re-release in our first-ever Full-Access Preview from December.
