A Mario overload
Just last month, Nintendo Australia released a Switch commercial that focused on classic Mario games that you can play on Switch via a Switch Online account. Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario World were showcased in particular, and the whole point of the commercial was to elicit memories of gaming decades ago.
What we didn’t know at the time was that that commercial was actually the first in a series, and Nintendo has released a follow-up today. This commercial picks up right where the first left off, giving us a little bit of Super Mario World before it gets to the main course, Super Mario Bros. Wonder.
Nintendo is clearly trying to woo old and new gamers alike with the nostalgia-fueled first commercial and this follow-up that focuses on Mario’s next big adventure. It also shows off the game’s local multiplayer component, which will no doubt woo in quite a few families who enjoy gaming together.
If you missed the prequel to today’s new commercial, you can check out that first spot below.
