Super Mario Bros. 35 Available Now For Nintendo Switch Online Subscribers
The 35-player Mario game is available from now until the end of March 2021.
Super Mario Bros. 35, Nintendo's sort-of take on a Super Mario battle royale, is available now on Nintendo Switch in all eShop regions around the world. The game is free to download for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers. It can be accessed from the "Nintendo Switch Online" tab on the eShop, and will take up 400MB of space.
The game casts you as one of 35 Marios, playing the 2D levels of the classic Super Mario Bros. against others online. As you play, you can make other people's journeys more difficult by defeating enemies, which will be sent to your opponents' courses; think Tetris 99, but with 35 Marios instead.
The game has been made to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the original Super Mario Bros. releasing on the NES.
Super Mario Bros. 35 isn't a permanent addition to the Switch library; the game will only available to play until March 31, 2021. This is the same day that Super Mario 3D All-Stars will be discontinued, too. It's not clear why Nintendo has set this time limit, but Jump Rope Challenge was only meant to be available until September 30 and has since been extended indefinitely.
A Game and Watch version of Super Mario Bros. is also coming in November, but stock is limited.
