Mario is one of gaming’s most well-known characters, having starred in a litany of games over the last 4 decades or so. Thankfully, those who weren’t around during Mario’s earlier days can still get a chance to check out some of his classics through services like Switch Online. If you happen to be a Switch Online member, you’ve got some more retro Mario titles heading your way very soon.

Nintendo has confirmed a trio of legacy Mario games for Switch Online come March 12th, 2024, and they all happen to come from the Game Boy era. Specifically, you can look forward to enjoying Dr. Mario, Mario Golf, and Mario Tennis in just a couple of days. Dr. Mario appeared on the Game Boy, while both Mario Golf and Mario Tennis were on the Game Boy Color.

Again, you have to be a member of Switch Online to enjoy these and other classic Game Boy/Game Boy Color games. If you’re not a member yet, now’s the perfect time to give things a try, as Nintendo is offering a free trial of the service until March 17th, 2024. You can get full details on that offer here.

Excellent! These are some awesome additions, all of them. And since I only subscribe to the basic NSO plan, I actually get to play these ones. Was just playing the GameBoy NSO app last night, in fact. This is great news!

I've never played this version of Mario Golf and it seems like I really missed out. Can't wait to give it a go!
