Nintendo sparks anger after commemorating several Mario games that get bombed this month

Roast over an open fire

Strangely, oddly, boringly; several Mario games disappear at the end of the month.

Including one which is a free bonus for Switch Online subscribers! Of course, that doesn't include the release of Fire Emblem NES on the eShop or the discontinuation of Mario Maker's online components on Wii U, which are often left out of the conversation (I haven't forgotten you guys ).



But while people are coping with this impending doom in different ways, Nintendo is blindly ignoring the critics. In fact, they recently tweeted out a little infographic about the number of Mario games on the Switch, a marketing exercise that's supposed to make the system look good, but with one exception; they put two of the "going away to the safe" games in there!

On the right is Super Mario Bros. 35 as well as Super Mario 3D All-Stars, both of which are releasing, even at retail, for the latter. Fans started 'Thanos slamming' games into existence in advance, with mockups like this tweet here.

Of course, Nintendo might change its mind after it squeezed after people's latest sellout due to FOMO. And then they would have their cake and eat it too, because they can introduce it as “we listened to the fans”. But either way, it's a very strange and very 2022-2022 decision to even threaten to bomb them in the first place.
