Mario's 25th Anniversary Box Set Heads For Europe

That lovely re-release of Super Mario All-Stars, presumed only for the Japanese market, will also be released in Europe, Nintendo has revealed.

The company's Swedish website has posted a listing (Update: now backed up by a press release stating it's a Europe-wide release) for the collection, with a release date set for December 3. Included will be a soundtrack CD, a retrospective DVD and a history booklet.

That box art being in English should not only put a smile on the face of British and Irish fans; it also increases the odds of the collection making its way to North America and Australasia as well.

Super Mario All-Stars was first released on the Super Nintendo, and includes updated (well, by SNES standards) versions of NES/Famicom classics Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels
