Nintendo will reportedly release most of its Super Mario franchise games on Nintendo Switch this year, according to a new report.

British gaming website Video Games Chronicle reported that Nintendo will celebrate Super Mario’s 35th anniversary by releasing updated versions of “most” of its Super Mario games. No specific games were mentioned, but Eurogamer reported that Super Mario Galaxy is among the remastered titles — “alongside a couple of other 3D Mario favourites.” Both reports suggested a new Paper Mario title will also be released this year, as well as “a Deluxe version of Super Mario 3D World” with a bunch of new levels.

Video Games Chronicle also reported Nintendo will announce new details regarding its Super Nintendo World theme park and an animated Super Mario movie.

The Super Mario series was first introduced in 1985. Nintendo expected to announce its anniversary plans at E3 in June, Video Games Chronicle said. E3 2020 was canceled in March over COVID-19 concerns.

Reached for comment, a Nintendo representative told Polygon that the company has “nothing to announce” on the topic.
