This year marks 25 wonderful years of Super Mario gaming and limited items commemorating this achiviement are starting to spill out into the world. Some are already out while others are on the horizon. Here are a few that you could grab up right now on eBay:
Super Mario Bros. 25th Anniversary Wii Collector Box – This box holds a Japanese version of Super Mario All Stars from the SNES for the Wii plus a Mario history soundtrack. The game can only be played on Japanese systems, but the soundtrack can be heard by all!
Super Mario Bros. 25th Anniversary Handbill – This Japanese handbill details Mario’s history. Please note however that this is Japanese.
Super Mario Bros. 25th Anniversary 1000 Wii Points – This card should be left intact! Imagine someone buying one of these, ripping off the cardboard, scratching it to get the code, cashing in the points on your system, then throwing it away! Ouch…
There are two more items coming out on November 7th that everyone should take note of. First is the new limited 25th Anniversary Wii bundle!
Like I mentioned above, this hits the stores on November 7th and will be a limited release. Inside you get a limited red colored Wii, New Super Mario Bros Wii, Wii Sports, and a Wii Remote Plus (a Wii controller with the Wii motion plus function built in). The other bundle to be released on November 7th is a limited DSi XL bundle…
With this bundle you get a limited red DSi XL, Mariokart DS, and three other games pre-installed on the system (Brain Age Express: Arts & Letters, Brain Age Express: Math, and Photo Clock). Go get em if you can when they release! They will sell out quick; I promise you.
