Super Mario 3D World for Switch allegedly listed at Best Buy

Super Mario 3D World for Switch listing Best Buy SKU Wario64 Nintendo Switch

Let’s get disclaimers out of the way right away: Retailer listings for upcoming video games are not always accurate, including at Best Buy. With that in mind, Twitter user Wario64, a trusted source of video game news in general, claims that a not-activated SKU listing for Super Mario 3D World for Nintendo Switch exists in the Best Buy database. By itself, this would be interesting but by no means a done deal. However, the metric ton of rumors about a host of 3D Mario remasters coming to Nintendo Switch this year makes this more notable.

The rumors, which have developed a bit with time, claim that nearly every mainline 3D Mario game ever made will receive a remaster on Nintendo Switch. In particular, Super Mario 64Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy may come packaged together as one release. Wii U’s Super Mario 3D World, however, is expected to receive the “Deluxe” treatment that Mario Kart 8 experienced with its Switch port. This Best Buy listing could possibly be for a Super Mario 3D World Deluxe.

Of course, even here we have to remind everyone that all of this is rumors; Nintendo hasn’t said boo about anything yet. But the amount of outlets reporting on the legitimacy of the rumors makes it pretty likely that Nintendo will reveal something biggish in the coming months.
