The big celebration for Mario’s 35th anniversary continues this month with a new cross-promotion of sorts. Spotted as a new My Nintendo Mission on the 35th-anniversary website, Nintendo and Amazon have teamed up to bring some extra cheer this year. 

 

 

Selecting “Mission details”, the following message pops-up:

 

Explore the Super Mario Bros. 35th anniversary page on Amazon.com

Visit the Super Mario Bros. 35th anniversary page on Amazon.com and explore various Mario products, walk through a history of the Super Mario Bros. franchise, and find hidden trivia. Be sure to look for the My Nintendo™ mission call-out on the page and follow the prompts to complete this mission and earn 100 Platinum Points. *

If you order from Amazon this November, your package may be delivered in a Super Mario Bros. ™ branded box. Note that the Super Mario Bros. branded Amazon boxes are in limited quantity and will be used randomly, while supplies last. Purchasing Nintendo products will not increase the possibility of receiving a Super Mario Bros. branded box.

* A Nintendo Account is required to receive and redeem My Nintendo points. Terms apply.

 

Clicking on the link will take you right to this brand new page dedicated to the Super Mario Bros. series and shows off a timeline of the last 35 years as well as Mario and Luigi-centric products. While it isn’t mentioned on Amazon’s page, the My Nintendo Missions page does shows off the Super Mario Bros. branded Amazon boxes. There’s no way to miss these packages as they’re bright “Mama Mia Red” and decorated with artwork of Mario and Luigi. 

 

 

It’s up to chance in acquiring one of these special boxes, so watch out if you’re trying to sneak a gift inside for the holidays!
