Hold on to your hats because it’s Mario celebration week in the Badge Arcade! The event kicks off with brand new badges in the New Super Mario Bros. series – finally rounding out the Super Mario Maker collection with all four generations. Joining in the festivities are a slew of repeat Super Mario World, Mega Man and Yo-Kai Watch catchers. Check out everything that’s new below:

Free play? Yup! Though the lack of Luigi in today’s update is highly unacceptable.

Both Super Mario Bros. launchers are warp piping out of the Arcade early tomorrow morning, so make sure to grab them if your 3DS home screen icons are in dire need of a Mushroom Kingdom inspired facelift.

What would a Mario party be without a special theme promotion? From now through December 29th at 2:00 a.m. PST, spend just $2 on ten plays to secure this Holiday Super Mario Bros. home theme!
