These games are set to be revealed alongside new details on both the Super Nintendo World theme park and the animated Super Mario movie, projects that Nintendo is working on Universal with.One part of the celebration, according to VGC, was the special interactive LEGO Mario set that slightly blurs the line between a toy and a video game.
The Super Mario…party was set to be revealed during E3 2020, which has since been canceled. Nintendo is now said to be reviewing its plans and deciding how it will hold the event in response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.
Eurogamer has also confirmed parts of VGC’s report, and its sources have indicated that Super Mario Galaxy is “indeed one of the games being readied for a remaster, alongside a couple of other 3D Mario favourites.”

Eurogamer also states that new Paper Mario is in fact “in the works” and that a deluxe edition of the Wii U’s Super Mario 3D World will arrive on Switch with “an array of new levels.”
Gematsu has also “heard similar reports,” and adds in that Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine will also be brought to Nintendo Switch.
If these reports are accurate, and assuming the games will not be delayed due to COVID-19 or other factors, Nintendo Switch owners will be able to look forward to the following Mario titles in 2020:
- Super Mario 64 (N64 – 1996)
- Super Mario Sunshine (Gamecube – 2002)
- Super Mario Galaxy (Wii – 2007)
- Super Mario 3D World (Wii U – 2013)
- A new Paper Mario game
- Other “3D Mario” titles
These games would help fill a year that will, according to Nintendo, not include a new Switch model and it will only help further push the success of the Switch, which has recently crossed the 50 million units sold milestone.
