Super Mario is dying. In a few days, to be precise Wednesday, March 31, 2021, the Nintendo icon representing the entire generation will definitely disappear from the face of the earth. Or at least some of the theories in Internet support (a little crazy, a little choreographic) that are starting to proliferate on social networks. But what exactly do they say? Why are they talking about Super Mario’s death?
March 31 will be an important date for Nintendo gamers. In a letter closing the fiscal year, Kyoto House also decided to put an end to such efforts. 35th Anniversary Super Mario, it will suddenly do. From that day on, in fact, stores, Super Mario 3D All-Stars, Game & Watch: Super Mario Brothers and all year-round merchandise in the official store can no longer be purchased or distributed.
In addition, the servers of Fun Battle Royal Super Mario Brothers 35 will be shut down and support for sharing the size of Super Mario Maker on the Wii U will be discontinued. Light is no longer available for purchase … but that is another story.
The truth is, without a real reason, the full series of games dedicated to Super Mario will no longer be available from March 31st. Why all this? Well, the Internet has rationalized in its own way and given its answer: Nintendo has decided to kill the Super Mario. Not to mention that with dozens of Twitter posts and plenty of memes this theory is quickly catching up.
However, in an attempt to alleviate such gruesome hypotheses, the Japanese company has decided to assure fans that all other Mario games will continue to be sold, including the most recent releases such as Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury and Mario Card Live: Home. Round. However, for those mentioned above, it is not clear what their fate will be: will they be the heirlooms of the chosen few? Do they refer to the plumber’s epitaph? Or will they be released in a different format?
Imbalance is difficult. On the other hand, in the past Nintendo has already killed someone from the Mario family: Remember Luigi’s death? The leader of the American division is no one else Bowser. Duck Bowser. It is impossible to trust someone with such a name.
What do you think about this? Are the games of life too short for poor Mario? How do you plan to comfort him in this difficult moment?
