When it was announced that Japan would be getting a special 25th Anniversary Edition of the classic title SNES title, Super Mario Bros. All-Stars, released on the Wii, Wii owners in the US began loudly clamoring for Nintendo to get this release over to the west.
It looks like Nintendo heard the cries of the American Wii user-base, as they have announced that Super Mario Bros. All-Stars will be coming to the American shores starting December 12th for a limited time only. Not only that, but it will retail for the very reasonable $29.99. Much like the Metroid Prime Trilogy, once these are gone, they are gone for good.
If you're like us, you already have the four titles, Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Bros. 3, and Super Mario Bros. Lost Levels, on your Wii through Virtual Console. To make this deal enticing to that population, Nintendo will also be including CD containing a Super Mario History Soundtrack, as well as a commemorative 32-page booklet that gives players a brief, yet colorful tour of the series' history.
