Super Mario Collection announced for Wii in Japan, website opened


After revealing the Super Mario Collection Special Pack on its release calendar, Nintendo of Japan has officially announced the title and opened a website to celebrate the 25th anniversary of everyone's favorite mustachioed plumber. As speculated previously, the pack includes a port of Super Mario All-Stars, a booklet about the history of the Mario series and a CD, which contains Mario music ranging from the original Super Mario Bros. to this summer's Super Mario Galaxy 2. The website also shows off plenty of celebratory swag that Nintendo will be giving away.

Super Mario Collection will be released in Japan on October 21 for ¥2,500 ($30). No announcement has been made regarding a North American version of the collection, though it seems like a no-brainer given how successful recent Mario titles have been. Check out a video of the collection after the break.
