Zelda Skyward Sword SteelBook Announced

November 2nd, 2011 Michael Pica

Futureshop in Canada seems to be getting lots and lots of exclusive SteelBooks recently. The latest of which is a SteelBook that is included along side pre-orders of Zelda Skyward Sword for the Wii.

This is a G1 sized case and apparently it will ONLY be included with pre-orders placed between October 26th and November 20th. Also it seems that it’s only included with the standard edition of the game not the Limited Edition bundle with the Gold Wii Remote.

Sadly Futureshop does not ship outside of Canada, which is a shame as this would make an excellent addition to any Zelda fan’s collection.

Mario All-Stars may get a reprint

January 8th, 2011 Michael Pica

If you haven’t noticed the 25th Anniversary Limited Edition of Super Mario All-Stars sold-out almost as soon as it hit store shelves. The edition that originally fetched $30 new is currently going for around $80 on the 2nd hand market. If you’re a collector and you didn’t pick one up, well it seems you made a mistake.

There is some hope though is reporting that due to the overwhelming demand that Nintendo is considering a reprint of sorts. No word on whether they’re simply going to print more of the 25th Anniversary Edition or produce a different release altogether.

Nintendo public relations director Marc Franklin told via email on Friday: “We are gratified by the consumer response to this limited-edition product, which we created to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the original Super Mario Bros. game on NES, because of the strong response, we are exploring the option of bringing this item back at a later date. … Until that decision is made, consumers should check with retailers, as supplies will vary by store.”

North America Gets to Celebrate Mario’s 25th too!

October 28th, 2010 Michael Pica

While both the Japan and Europe were blessed with a 25th Anniversary Edition of Super Mario All-Stars for Wii, North America was left sitting on our hands. No more, Nintendo has seen fit to bless us with the commemorative release as well.

Similar to the releases in Europe and Asia the collection includes a Wii game disc with an enhanced version of the SNES release of Super Mario All-Stars in a swanky red art-box. Not included is the history DVD but instead the North American releases will receive a 32-page booklet covering Mario’s history featuring interviews, behind-the-scenes details and concept art.

Also included, is a Soundtrack CD that contains music from the various installments of the Mario franchise as well as sound effects from the original Super Mario Bros. up through Super Mario Galaxy 2

The package will release on December 12th  at a price of about $30

I can’t help but feel that Nintendo of America was too afraid that Americans wouldn’t be able to figure out that their Wii can’t play DVDs and opted to go with the Booklet instead. Either way for $30 it’s a must buy for Wii collectors and Mario fans.
