Nintendo to Release 30th Anniversary Mario Soundtrack
As another way to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Super Mario Bros 1, Nintendo are going to release a soundtrack CD with various songs from the many games in the Mario series.
Above: Best to forget this one ever happened…
But unlike last time around, where the song list was literally half sound effects, this one seems to have a tad more variety. Behold, the full list of games that songs are being taken from this time around:
- Super Mario Bros.
- Super Mario Bros. 2 (the Lost Levels)
- Super Mario Bros. 3
- Super Mario Land
- Super Mario World
- Super Mario USA (Super Mario Bros 2)
- Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins
- Super Mario 64
- Super Mario Sunshine
- New Super Mario Bros.
- Super Mario Galaxy
- New Super Mario Bros. Wii
- Super Mario Galaxy 2
- Super Mario 3D Land
- New Super Mario Bros. 2
- New Super Mario Bros. U
- Super Mario 3D World
- Super Mario Maker
In other words? They’re representing the entire series, even down to the more obscure ones like the Super Mario Land series and Super Mario Sunshine. Definitely a far cry from such ‘imaginative’ tracks as ‘Mario gets a 1-Up sound effect’, isn’t it? Either way, it’ll be released on the 13th of September for 3,240 yen (about £17 or $26) and will come on two full CDs.
But what do you think? Is this a soundtrack you might be interested in buying? And on a similar note… are there any great Mario songs you’re desperate to see used in a soundtrack like this? Cause we’d like the ruins theme from Super Mario Land ourselves…
