Good luck finding a copy of the 25th Anniversary Super Mario All-Stars collector’s edition. The game is sold out at most retailers – and those looking for copies of the limited edition collection online can look forward to paying up to three times the suggested retail price on eBay. But due to the overwhelming demand for the special boxed set, Nintendo is considering reprinting the game at a later date.
“We are gratified by the consumer response to this limited-edition product, which we created to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the original Super Mario Bros. game for the NES,” said Nintendo public relations director Marc Franklin to Wired.com. “Because of the strong response, we are exploring the option of bringing this item back at a later date.”
Until then, Franklin suggests that you check with your local retailers as “supplies will vary by store.”
