Yea we got the announcement of the Super Mario 3D All Stars collection featuring three of Mario's greatest adventures from the N64, and Gamecube eras, and Nintendo's attempt to make Mario Kart a toy/video game hybrid, but being able to compete against others in Super Mario Bros. stages is something that has fans intrigued.

Super Mario Bros. 35 is similar to the popular Tetris 99 in a lot of ways. Players will be matched up with 34 others to compete to see who is the last Mario standing.
