RIP Super Mario: The Internet grieves video game industry’s favorite platforming plumber

RIP Super Mario!!

The video game icon’s name has been trending on the microblogging site Twitter as fans mourned the removal of several classic Super Mario games from the Nintendo store.

The world of video games changed  35 years ago with the release of “Super Mario Bros”,  the famous, red-wearing, Italian plumber.

To celebrate the franchise’s 35th anniversary, Nintendo re-launched classic games “Super Mario 3D All-Stars,” “Super Mario Bros. 35” for its Switch console, last year in September.

However, it was reported a few days ago that after 31 March, those games, as well as other anniversary products released by the brand, will no longer be available to purchase digitally or physically once product runs out,

“As previously announced, the physical version of the Super Mario 3D All-Stars game will not be shipped to retailers beyond the Super Mario Bros. 35th anniversary period, ending March 31, 2021,” Nintendo of America said in a statement Wednesday.

“Units shipped during the anniversary period will remain available for purchase at various retailers, while supplies last. In-store availability should be confirmed with each retailer.”

Following the announcement, the internet saw the fans are grieving the video games’ removal as the death of  Mario.

“Super Mario passed away peacefully on March 31, 2021. Born in 1985, he is survived by his brother Luigi and partner Princess Peach,” the fans have declared.
