Nintendo Switch remastered rumors: Super Mario Sunshine among soon-to-come reboots
Nintendo will bring a heavy dose of nostalgia this year with a series of long-awaited remastered games for its Switch system, according to reports Monday from the Virtual Games Chronicle and Eurogamer.
“Super Mario 64,” “Super Mario Sunshine” and “Super Mario Galaxy” are expected to get second lives, giving users three games that are over a decade old to play. “Super Mario 3D World” is also expected to be remastered.
The gift to long-time players eager to play underrated titles from the past comes as Nintendo celebrates the 35th anniversary of the Super Mario series. No release date or announcement for the remastered games has been provided yet.
It has been a fantastic couple of weeks for Nintendo, which has benefitted from the March 20 release of “Animal Crossing: New Horizons” to overwhelmingly popular reception. The game sold 1.88 million physical copies in Japan alone in its first three days on the market.
Nintendo stock has kept essentially level with its price from the start of 2020, despite a dire global economic market pummeled by the coronavirus pandemic (it closed at $48.14 on Monday, compared to its $49.90 listing entering the year).
The imminent release of classic games such as “Super Mario Sunshine” are likely to encourage further interest in the Switch.
