Nintendo is going all out for the 35th anniversary of Super Mario Bros.! They’re even bringing a special set of missions and rewards to My Nintendo, including everyone’s favorite – physical swag. 

Available on the dedicated Mario site, there’s a new section titled “My Nintendo missions”. With a click, you’ll see the following rewards in Wave 1 of this promotion: Entry into the My Nintendo Super Mario Sweepstakes and Super Mario Bros. collectible pin set. In order to acquire these rewards, you’ll have to check out the missions tab. On there, you’ll find the following tasks: 

  • Visit the official Super Mario website
  • Take the Super Mario quiz
  • Download your “This is my Mario!” image
  • Try the Super Mario Music Player
  • Race in the Super Mario Kart Tour event (ends Tuesday, September 22nd)
  • Purchase the Super Mario 3D All-Stars game

Besides the Mario Kart Tour mission, all missions are available to complete until Wednesday, March 31st, 2021. Also, you’ll find on the main My Nintendo site that three of these missions will also reward you with some Platinum Points! 

REWARDS

Only one of the following missions is needed to earn the “Entry into the My Nintendo Super Mario Sweepstakes” reward. You will have to manually enter into the contest and you’ll have the chance to win one of the following prize packs:

 

 

Nintendo Switch system package

  • Nintendo Switch system
  • 5 $20 Nintendo eShop gift cards

As for the Super Mario Bros. collectible pin set, you’ll need to meet the following criteria:  “Five missions, including the “Purchase Super Mario 3D All-Stars” mission, must be completed before being eligible to receive the pins.”

In order for your purchase of Super Mario 3D All-Stars to be counted, you must either purchase the digital version of the game or purchase the physical edition and register it for My Nintendo Gold Points. After this, the “Purchase Super Mario 3D All-Stars” mission will be marked as complete within 48 hours. Even if you buy the digital version now, you’ll have to wait for the game’s release day though!

This is only half of the 35th anniversary Super Mario Bros. pin set that was featured in the Nintendo Direct. Therefore you’ll receive the following Mario pins in “Set 1”:

  • Super Mario Bros.
  • Super Mario Bros. 2
  • Super Mario Bros. 3
  • Super Mario World
  • Super Mario 64

All Wave 1 rewards are available to claim until 11:59 p.m. PT on Tuesday, December 22nd.

While not stated outright, expect to see a Wave 2 of rewards. At the very least, we’ll see the second half to the Super Mario Bros. 35th Anniversary Pins be made available.
