This was sort of unexpected. First, we got 2 exclusive “red” consoles that’s supposedly available for a limited time, and now, the house that Mario made famous of just announced that it will be releasing Super Mario All Stars for the Wii for the U.S. as well (also for a limited time). For $29.99, I think it is a great value which comes with 4 classic Super Mario titles, soundtrack, history booklet and interviews. An idea of what’s in store for this release can be found in this blog.
I’m actually quite excited for this release more than the 2 other consoles they’ll release this year. You can pre-order yours now on Amazon.com and it comes out on December 12th just in time for the holidays. You can probably pre-submit this to VGA to get it graded right out of the box from Amazon. Maybe you can ask 2 grand for it. Or, maybe VGA themselves should just sell you a graded version of the game. Oh shit, did I just give them an idea? I’d definitely want some commission for that.
