Nintendo of America is producing its final run of the Super Mario All-Stars™ Limited Edition package that celebrates the 25th anniversary of the original Super Mario Bros. game. The collection went on sale on Dec. 12 at a suggested retail price of $29.99, and nearly all retail locations were out of stock within days. The final shipments will be in stores on March 13.

The games included in the Super Mario All-Stars collection are Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, Super Mario Bros. 2 and Super Mario Bros. 3. Each game features the enhanced graphics and updated sound from the Super NES™ Super Mario All-Stars collection, and all four can be played on the Wii system using one of several controllers: the Wii Remote™ controller, Classic Controller™, Classic Controller Pro™ or the Nintendo GameCube™ controller.

Also included is a Super Mario History soundtrack CD, a compilation of memorable music from the Mario™ franchise. Containing classic theme songs and fun sound effects from the original Super Mario Bros. game all the way up to the acclaimed Super Mario Galaxy2 game, this special disc also marks the first official release of the "Super Mario Bros. Ground Theme," widely recognized as one of the most famous pieces of video game music in history.

Rounding out the Super Mario All-Stars collection is a 32-page Super Mario History booklet featuring interviews, behind-the-scenes details and rare concept art. Fans from every generation can enjoy firsthand insights into the beginnings of Mario, illustrated with candid photos and never-before-seen design sketches. Together with the game software and soundtrack, it’s the ultimate tribute to a unique game series.

For more information about the 25th anniversary of Super Mario Bros., visit http://mario25.nintendo.com.
To be honest, the market is already flooded with people trying to sell this limited edition for a little profit. This final shipment will further dilute the secondary market and devalue every copy available.
