Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury arrives this Friday, but that’s not the only Mario content in store for Switch owners this weekend. Nintendo will soon kick off another Special Battle event for Super Mario Bros. 35, while a new Ninji Speedrun course has been added to Super Mario Maker 2.
The Super Mario Bros. 35 event, the 4th Coin King Special Battle, begins February 11 at 11 PM PT (2 AM ET on February 12) and runs until the same time on February 14. This event takes players through all 32 of the game’s courses in the same sequence as they appear in the original Super Mario Bros., with the main objective being to collect the most coins. After the event ends, Nintendo says it will share the top 10 players in North America.
