Nintendo Switch has deals on Mario games (and Luigi's Mansion 3) for MAR10 Day


Several notable Mario games are 35 percent off this week

With Nintendo still pledging to stop selling “Mario 35th anniversary celebration” games like Super Mario 3D All-Stars at the end of March, our attention is elsewhere in the Mushroom Kingdom this month, but it wouldn’t be MAR10 Day – March 10 – without several discounts on “Mario games” for Switch.

If you’re in the mood for a Mario romp – or want to show your support for Luigi instead – the following Nintendo Switch titles are discounted until March 13 at 11:59 pm Pacific on the Nintendo eShop:

35 percent off during a 35th anniversary? You lucked out on this one, Nintendo.

Strangely, Super Mario Odyssey – arguably the best Mario adventure in a good long time – isn’t a part of Nintendo’s MAR10 Day eShop sale. That said, Amazon and Walmart have it for $38.88 right now.

You can make a case for any of these games, especially Luigi’s Mansion 3 and Mario Maker 2, but I’ll add that Super Mario Party is a real I-guess-I’ll-get-it-at-that-price sort of jam. Go in expecting that the game is what it is – there won’t be content updates – and cook some meat cubes. The mini-games are fun, just don’t forget that you need a Joy-Con for every player since Pro Controllers are prohibited.

Me? I’m too busy ignoring Super Mario 3D World in favor of Bowser’s Fury.
