Mario Day is just around the corner. Or should I say “MAR10 Day.” In case you are new to the idea of a day surrounding everyone’s favorite Italian plumber, mark your calendar for March 10th (in case the spelling wasn’t painfully obvious enough). Fans can celebrate in their own way by simply playing some Mario games both old new. But, Nintendo likes to celebrate every year with promotional deals typically featuring the red-capped hero.
So what can you expect from Mario Day this year? For starters, if you don’t have a Nintendo Switch, you’re in luck. Folks can snag a Switch and one of five select Mario titles at participating retailers for just $329.98. This is basically a $30 savings as all of the games are typically priced at $59.99. Already have a Nintendo Switch? No sweat. You can still snag a discount on these five games. Purchasing a download code from participating retailers (online or in store) will enable you to get the games at $39.99 each — a $20 savings.
What five Mario games are we talking about?
The promotion covers these five games: Super Mario Party, Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Mario Tennis Aces, and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe. All of these games are pretty solid purchases. Super Mario Odyssey and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe are must-buys for anyone who doesn’t have them already. Be sure to check out all the details provided by Nintendo.
The Mario Day fun doesn’t stop there. Fans can redeem My Nintendo reward points for MAR10 Day wallpapers or a March calendar. Additionally, Nintendo is providing a printable Mario Bingo game if you want to get the whole family involved (you know, aside from just playing the Mario Switch games together). There are many more Mario Day goodies including discounts on select Mario 3DS titles on the eShop. You can check out all that Nintendo is offering here.

Accountant by day, video games enthusiast by night. Somewhere in between all of that, I’m a husband, dad, and generally a giant man-child, too. If a game is all about action, there’s a safe bet I’m playing it. I started laying waste to virtual worlds as a youngin’ on the ol’ Atari and haven’t stopped since.
