I never thought I’d say that sentence…
In another odd but very welcomed mashup, Super Mario Bros. is getting a battle royale mode! Well, kind of. Announced this morning during the 35th Anniversary Super Mario Direct, a new Super Mario game, unlike Tetris 99, is coming for Nintendo Online members next month. In this game, 35 players battle it out with one another on a Mario course to see who will be the last one standing.
As you travel along courses, the enemies you defeat will be sent to the remaining players’ courses to cause havoc, but their enemies can also be sent to yours to trip you up. A special roulette block will also be available to give you a randomised boost or advantage against the other players.
Super Mario Bros. 35 will be available exclusively to Nintendo Online subscribers from October 1st, 2020 through until March 31st, 2021.
