All aboard the Mario train!

Nintendo is lining up all sorts of fun events for the Super Mario Bros. 35th anniversary, and some of them are going to be available in Japan only. Nintendo has detailed one of those special events today.

Nintendo is teaming with the JR East rail system in Japan for a “JR East Super Mario PLAY! TOKYO!” event. This is going to be a multi-faceted event that kicks off with a stamp rally at 35 different stops. Stamps are collected digitally by scanning them with your smartphone at each stop. There will also be a way to participate in this stamp rally at home. Those who collect the digital stamps have a chance to win a limited edition stamp pass case. The stamp rally runs from Oct. 8th to Dec. 17th for the in-person version, and online from Nov. 10th to Dec. 17th, 2020.

This special event will also include an exhibit at both Tokyo Station and Shinjuku Station. These stations will have displays set up that showcase art and more from Mario's 35 years. The Tokyo Station display can be found on the 2nd floor deck of GRANROOF, and it'll be available from October 8th, 2020 to November 23rd, 2020. As for the display at Shinjuku Station, that can be found at the south exit. You can check out more pics of the setups here.

Super Mario Bros.: The Movie seeing Blu-ray release in Japan

This ain't no video game!

TC Entertainment has announced that they're releasing the 1993 Super Mario Bros.: The Movie on Blu-ray in Japan. The item is set to release on December 4th, 2020, and is priced at ¥4,180.

Super Mario 3D All-Stars introduces a new bug to Super Mario Sunshine that lets you skip a certain mission almost instantly

Cleaning up

The “Scrubbing Sirena Beach” mission in Super Mario Sunshine isn't exactly the most exciting objective in the game. Mario is tasked with cleaning up 95% of the beach before he can earn a Shine. Normally the task is a bit time-consuming, but a bug introduced through the Super Mario 3D All-Stars version of the game makes the mission a snap.

As you can see in the video above, the player looking to tackle the “Scrubbing Sirena Beach” mission doesn't get anywhere near the clean-up goal, yet he's awarded a win. What's causing this bug to pop up? Players aren't sure just yet, and dataminers are trying to figure it out. Being able to activate the glitch at will would be great for speedrunners, but as of right now, it seems players are happening upon the bug randomly.

If/when the reasoning for this bug is discovered, you can bet that speedrunners will push it to the limits!
