What better way to celebrate Mario’s thirty-fifth anniversary than to take part in hectic multiplayer platforming showdowns with thirty-four other players, right? Super Mario Bros. 35, the online multiplayer take on the original Super Mario Bros. that sees players competing with each other in frantc action, is available on the Nintendo Switch from today.

Check out the game in action in the trailer below:

Super Mario Bros. 35 delivers the classic platforming action from the original NES game, with a new 35-player twist. Race against time as one of 35 players, all competing in Super Mario Bros. gameplay at the same time. Defeat enemies and disrupt opponents in an online battle to emerge victorious as the last Mario standing. Experienced players will relive the familiar levels of Super Mario Bros., while beginners can join a community of players to start their Super Mario Bros. journey.

In Super Mario Bros. 35, each player starts with the same timed stage. When enemies are defeated, they are sent over to the opponents’ courses while giving extra time to the player. But proceed with caution, because what goes around comes around: anyone can become someone else’s target when they perform well too. Choose among four types of attack strategy and use items wisely to outpace opponents, and make sure to check in often for Daily Challenges and take part in Special Battles, too.

Super Mario Bros. 35 is available for free for all Nintendo Switch Online subscribers, but be warned: it’ll only be available to download and play until March 31st 2021, so you’ve only got six months of multiplayer Mario action to enjoy. Better get playing immediately then…
