Tested & code works, great price for physical copy and 3 amazing games.

Join Mario on his 3D adventures

Super Mario 3D All-Stars lets you experience three classic games in one star-studded collection.

Replay your favourite levels in Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy. Optimised for the Nintendo Switch, it features Joy-Con control integration, immersive HD graphics and even a music player so you can enjoy the nostalgic soundtracks from all three games.

Super Mario 64

Defeat Bowser and rescue Princess Peach in Super Mario 64, Mario's first ever 3D adventure. Wall jump, backflip and even fly through Princess Peach's castle, exploring secret walls and paintings.

Super Mario Sunshine

Get a tan with Mario on the tropical island of Isle Delfino in Super Mario Sunshine, originally released for GameCube. Instead of relaxing in the sun on his holiday Mario finds himself being blamed for polluting and graffitiing the island. With his Flash Liquidizer Ultra Dousing Device (F.L.U.D.D.), Mario has been ordered to clean it up - and uncover the mysterious preparator along the way.

Super Mario Galaxy

Blast off in space in the Wii classic Super Mario Galaxy. With the help of Rosalina, rescue Princess Peach from Bowser once again in this intergalactic adventure. Use the optional motion controls to defy gravity and hop across planets to solve puzzles. Or pass your friend a Joy-Con controller and play together in Co-Star mode.

Thanks ordered, as my Base order just got cancelled
Why don't y'all just order from Nintendo if you're worried about shortages. They're the most likely to actually deliver, no?

That said, using work's discount and the code, £42 here seems like a nice deal.
Still about £20 more than this package should cost, but still.

Why did it get cancelled?
Seriously hate how Nintendo is handling this...

Why did it get cancelled?


From Base.com email:

We have just been notified of our allocation of Super Mario 3D All-stars (Nintendo Switch) and it is woefully short. This is very disappointing and it is with great regret that we have to inform you that we will be unable to fulfil you order on the day of release. Further, as Nintendo and their UK distributers are unable to give us any reassurance that more stock will become available after release, we have taken the regrettable decision to cancel all orders.
Great, it will most likely arrive damaged

Pay via PayPal with Curry’s as when it does, you’ll not be able to get through to CS to sort it.

Samesies
Like the many others, coming here from the Base.com cancellation email.
Hopefully Currys PC World doesn't let us down.
Does anyone know if Currys PC World pre orders arrive on release day? The webiste is pretty vague on the subject
thanks, like the others Base cancelled so the code and deal helped

Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't. They are bit all over the place.

That's what I was assuming, they don't seem the most reliable. Thanks

I have Amazon & Curry's & Game on Pre-Order now.
I predict at least 1 more will cancel on me after Base now.

Exactly what I did sure it's the full £49.99 but not about to risk a pre-order cancellation!
Unfortunate that Base.com cancelled orders, but the listing is gone from their site so at least they can't be accused of cancelling cheaper orders to fulfil £50 orders.
I have 'Pikmin 3' ordered at Base, which releases on the 30th of October. How they handle that order will decide whether I pre-order with them again.

Should be fine, pikmin 3 isn't a limited run and will be nowhere near as popular as this.

Woaw, that is disappointing. I hope everyone who ordered from Base gets something else sorted out.

This is one of those rare times I ordered direct from Nintendo as I didn't want to risk it.

Put it this way, they sent a £300 + Cyberpunk Limited Edition Xbox One Console in a plastic bag! No bubble wrap, no box, a plastic bag....

It's killed my hype for the game pretty sufficiently and put me off bothering to buy it
I now have orders with amazon and Currys. But regret the Currys one now. May cancel as last time ordered Luigis mansion 3 and the case had a small crack in it. And if I’m looking to sell this game in future don’t want a damaged case

Just be aware that if you do order from Nintendo’s UK website it’s run by those incompetent jokers The Hut Group which means you may not actually get the game on release day.

Yep, but this takes the cake because they didn't stop making those things before the demand went away.
Just ordered, but at purchase it says 'free delivery as soon as stock is available'
Ehh, does that mean that I'm getting it at release or some time next month?

I'm able to see the listing on their site, it's ~£50 now...

The whole thing reeks of wanting to fully cash in on the huge demand. I cancelled my preorders of both this and Game & Watch because I see the whole thing as a mess.

Amiibo and Switches have always been manufactured, just delayed in batches.

Nintendo are framing the production of this as not being made beyond March 31st 2021, including digital copies.

Not quite the same.

I don't see it on the site anymore, Do you have a link ?
If they are now selling it for 50 after cancelling everyone's orders, then that's disgraceful.
Nintendo themselves purposely creating a shortage and exclusive time frame to bolster desperate sales. Its working. I almost got pulled in myself and ordered but refuse to bow to these shady and underhand tactics employed by Nintendo to artificially create shortages. They know by doing this they will create a massive demand.
My Paper Mario Just arrived from Currys.
As mentioned, in a plastic bag, but thankfully no damage as switch games are so light.

That's the world we live in now. I don't have a problem with Nintendo doing it. Lots of places do it for many things.
As a company if they can make money doing it, then fair play to them.

Well.....Maybe its varied.
But everything I have ever bought from them in the last 3-4 years always comes in a grey ish plastic bag, games, consoles, headphones etc.

I’d say not at all. No padding. Just a think plastic sheet
