SUPER MARIO ALLSTARS MAY BE GETTING A 3RD LIFE
According to a report on Wired.com--sources at Nintendo say that the company may be considering re-printing MORE copies of the Quickly-Sold-Out Wii version of "Super Mario Allstars", the SNES Classic compilation of the Original NES "Super Mario Bros" games.
Nintendo Public Relations director, Marc Franklin, was quoted via an email to Wired.com as saying:
"We are gratified by the consumer response to this limited-edition product, which we created to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the original Super Mario Bros. game on NES. Because of the strong response, we are exploring the option of bringing this item back at a later date."
Since its more-than-likely COMPLETELY sold-out it stores, over a month since it's release, it's likely to be only found on Ebay, or another online retailer for 2-3 times its original price.
If Nintendo DOES decide to re-release "SMASWii" then I'm sure it'd be open with welcome arms by the majority of Wii owners.
--Personally, as one who still owns his SNES, and the original "Allstars" Cart--I'm fine w/ out the Wii version...but I do want the CD Soundtrack.
