After months of rumors and leaks, Nintendo was officially revealed Super Mario 3D All-Stars a few days earlier. To the surprise of many, the game has limited releases and is too problematic for retailers.
Super Mario 3D All-Stars will be available for $ 60 from September through March 2021. In addition, Nintendo appears to be releasing a limited number of physical copies as well. A UK retailer is already struggling to keep up with demand and is forced to cancel all pre-orders for the game.
Base cancels ALL pre-orders
Fans are using social media platforms to express their dismay at Base.com’s cancellation of pre-orders for the game. According to the email sent by the retailer’s support team, the problems with Nintendo are over.

In the email, the company says the assignment of titles for the Switch game is “extremely short.” It adds, “This is very disappointing and it is very unfortunate that we have to inform you that we cannot fulfill your order on the day of publication.”
As Nintendo and its UK distributors have not yet confirmed that more stock is coming, all orders have already been canceled. This doesn’t necessarily mean that Base won’t sell the game. Fans may need to visit the dealer for a copy on launch day.
This is of course a big problem, especially for fans who dearly want this collection. Base has yet to release more details on this issue.
What is the game about?
Super Mario 3D All-Stars is a collection of three games. These include Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy. The collection has already been praised and criticized by fans. Praise is the fact that after all this time, Nintendo finally released the collection.
On the other hand, fans are disappointed with the game’s AAA prices. Usually collections of games are much cheaper. What’s even more surprising is that the games aren’t even remastered versions of the original. Fans are also disappointed that only the first Super Mario Galaxy Game will be part of the collection.
Super Mario 3D All-Stars launches in a few days but the game still has issues launching. Nintendo’s decision to have it hit a limited number is a big problem. Fans would love to hear more from Nintendo as the release date approaches.
