Super Mario All-Stars 25th Anniversary Edition Wii gift set
Nintendo gave me a Christmas present early with Super Mario All-Stars: 25th Anniversary Edition for Wii! Happy I am!

Naturally, I went ahead and recorded some unboxing videos so you guys can see the cool gift I was sent and get a look at this special edition set, which you can purchase for $30 at retail or online.

  • Here is what the Princess Peach letter included in the package says:


    After so many years of writing letters to Mario, I decided it was about time to find some new pen pals! I haven’t baked you a cake or anything, but I did send some very special presents.

    The first is Super Mario All-Stars Limited Edition, where you can relive all the fun Mario and I have had through the years. On top of that, I also thought I’d send you some special paper that should only be used to wrap presents for the biggest Mushroom Kingdom fan on your list.

    If you need to get in touch, you know where to find me: In another castle. – Princess Peach”

    Cute, eh. Fans of the Mario series will recall that Princess Peach (or “Princess Toadstool”, as she was known back in the 80s and early 90s) sent Mario letters in Super Mario Bros. 3 after you’d defeat each of the Koopalings in the Castles for each world. And in Super Mario 64 Princess Peach baked Mario his first cake… which was really a trap set up by Bowser to capture Mario!

    Here’s a look at this Nintendo Christmas gift.

    Here is an unboxing of the Super Mario All-Stars Wii gift.

    Here is a video of me opening the actual game set. Note that I wrongly states the set contains Super Mario World. Brainfart. ๐Ÿ˜›

    A Celebration Collection
    This collectible package features four classic Mario games, a soundtrack CD and an illustrated commemorative booklet. It’s a special collection of some never-before-seen items released in honor of the 25th Anniversary of the original Super Mario Bros. game on the Nintendo Entertainment System and Japanese Famicon.

    Key Features Include:
    The games included in the Super Mario All-Stars Limited Edition are:

  • Super Mario Bros. 1 : This is the game that started it all. It features now-iconic Mushroom Kingdom characters like Mario, Bowser, Princess Peach, Toad, Goombas and Koopas. This game set the standard for all future platforming games.
  • Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels : Originally released in Japan as Super Mario Bros. 2, this game has made only brief cameo appearences in the Western hemisphere. Mario fans will appreciate the familiar look and feel of the game.
  • Super Mario Bros. 2 : This time, Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Toad have little more than vegetables to defend themselves with. Each character has a unique set of abilities: Luigi can jump higher and farther, Toad can dig extremely fast and pull items out of the ground quicker, Princess Peach is the only one who can jump and hover temporarily and Mario has the most balanced skills.
  • Super Mario Bros. 3 : This installment introduced new elements like the Tanooki Suit and Koopalings. Mario must battle new enemies, returning favorites and a new Koopaling in each unique and distinctive world on his way to ultimately taking on Bowser himself. Fly above the action using the Super Leaf, swim faster by donning the Frog Suit or defeat enemies using the Hammer Suit.

    Each game features enhanced graphics and updated sound from the Super NES Super Mario All-Stars game.

    All four games 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 Galaxy 2 game, this special disc also marks the first official release of the Super Mario Bros. Ground Theme in North America, widely recognized as one of the most famous pieces of video game music in history.

    Rounding out the Super Mario All-Stars Limited Edition 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.

    • I am SO jealous right now!

      You should totally get that letter from Princess Peach framed.

    • KP

      I died a little inside when you ripped the wrapping paper lol. Either way i want Nintendo to send me free stuff! ๐Ÿ™‚

      I pre-ordered this, I had All Stars on SNES and played it most out of all the games I had. Love that they are releasing for the Wii.

    • I updated the article to include a video of me opening the actual set and showing you it’s contents. Including a complete thumbing through of the Super Mario All-Stars 25th Annivesary edition art book that’s included in the set.

      @KP: Awesome man! I think it’s a great set and you can’t go wrong with the price, but it’s far too bare-bones for my liking. I wish they would’ve at least included Super Mario World and I wish they wouldn’t included information on Mario’s entire repertoire of titles from Super Mario RPG to Mario Kart to Mario vs Donkey Kong and more.

    • I really wish Nintendo had gone the extra mile on this and do something similar to what they had done with the All*Stars collection on the SNES. They should have remade SMB, SMB2, SMB3, SMB4 (World), and SMW2 + Lost levels (SMB2J) to take advantage of the Wii graphics and sound. Make it look more like New SMB Wii or something.

      They should have packed the CD with tracks like they did with their 20th Anniversary Famicom collection CDs.. 80 minutes, 40 tracks.. It’s not like they don’t have enough great Mario music to fill a CD!

      The book should have been the size of their Official Nintendo Guides. Mario Mania or Super Mario All*Stars guides full of great pictures, history, and full maps for all the games.

      That being said, I still bought it because I am gullible and a big Nintendo fan. ๐Ÿ˜›

      I’m glad they offered it here in the states, but they should have done more for the 25th anniversary of the icon that made them as huge as they are today!

      Maybe we’ll get a nicer collecting for Mario’s 50th Anniversary…
