There’s something about mid March that lends itself very well to novelty date-based holidays. There’s the Ides on the 15th, Pi Day on the 14th, and of course MAR10 Day on the 10th, when we celebrate everybody’s favorite red plumber in style. And Nintendo isn’t deigning to just highlight festivities on the date itself, but for the entire month of March.
After kicking off celebrations yesterday at Nintendo NY, we today got details on Wave 4 of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC and a new Mario-themed Switch bundle. In addition, there’s a My Nintendo sweepstakes to win a trip to Super Nintendo World starting on March 10th, in-store GameStop events at select locations on March 11th from noon to 4 p.m. local time, and multiple sales.
From March 5th through 11th, you can visit “select retailers” in the US to save up to $20 on a range of Mario Switch titles. Meanwhile, the eShop is hosting two different waves of sales – the first from March 10th through 23rd features games like Mario Party Superstars, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Yoshi’s Crafted World, and Luigi’s Mansion 3; the second from March 24th through April 7th has the likes of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey, New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, Super Mario Maker 2, and Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury.
Check out the announcement page for more details. MAR10 day comes… on March 10th.
