Get ready for a stress test of Super Mario proportions today, as Super Mario Bros. 35 hits the Switch (along with a bunch of other stuff).
It’s-a them, Marios
Well friends, the day is finally here. Super Mario Bros. 35 has arrived on the Nintendo Switch. Basically Tetris 99, but with Mario, Super Mario Bros. 35 takes the original NES title and adds in a multiplayer element.
You still try and beat levels, but while you play you send enemies into other players games. That obviously makes their efforts tougher, and also gives you more time to win. The game is free for those who subscribe to Nintendo’s online service, and is playable right now.
Additionally, there are a few more pretty decent size releases. Those are the JRPG Ys Origin, the fall update for Animal Crossing, the Sega Genesis classic Herzog Zwei, and a host of smaller releases.
Scroll down to check ’em all out.

Your swordsmanship and spells will help you banish evil from the land of your ancestors.
- Animal Crossing: New Horizons Fall Update – The pumpkin party has begun! Deck out your home and island with pumpkin projects by purchasing pumpkin starts from Nook’s Cranny during October, or from Leif year-round. Once your pumpkins are grown, they can be harvested and put to use in pumpkin-based DIY projects. Plus, with Halloween just around the corner, you can find your style for the big night by purchasing costumes, like a mage’s dress, at the Able Sisters shop during the month of October. You can even obtain body paint and colored eye contacts by exchanging Nook Miles. On Oct. 31, at 5 p.m., your neighbors will gather in the plaza, in costume, for a night filled with pranks and candy. Keep your eyes peeled for the mysterious guest – Jack, the “czar of Halloween,” who may have a few spooky surprises up his sleeve. Boo!
