Super Mario 3D All-Stars just got announced for Nintendo Switch. This collection of classic Mario games includes Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy. But there's a catch. While it releases on September 18, 2020 Nintendo states "Super Mario 3D All-Stars will be available as a limited-run retail edition and a digital edition that is available for a limited time until the end of March 2021." That means there's only a six month window to acquire it.

Amazon has already run out of stock. If you want to get your hands on this limited-release game then you're going to want to pre-order it as soon as you can. Here's how to preorder Super Mario 3D All-Stars.
