REDMOND, Wash., March, 2023 – Let’s-a go! With MAR10 Day hitting soon on March 10, Nintendo is celebrating another exciting year for their mustachioed hero with not only a day but a month’s worth of activities.
Yesterday, Nintendo officially kicked off the MAR10 Day celebrations with a party at Nintendo NY starring Mario, Luigi and YouTube superstar Ryan Kaji from Ryan’s World. Today, the celebration continues with a Mushroom Kingdom’s worth of exciting announcements, including a reveal of the new Nintendo Switch Mario Choose One Bundle arriving in stores starting on March 10, additional details about Wave 4 of the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – Booster Course Pass DLC (including full track list and the March 9 launch!), an upcoming Nintendo Switch game sale perfect for Mario fans of all ages and so much more.
