The Super Mario 3D All-Stars collection is no longer for sale, and sure enough, rates of physical copies are starting to surge online.
Some scalpers are now requesting hundreds and even thousands of dollars for specific copies of Nintendos limited-release on sites such as eBay. Nintendo Switch subreddit user, TommyFrickster789, discusses how rates for essentially second-hand however brand-new copies are already out of hand.
We took a look ourselves, and sadly its all true. Some eBay sellers who have hoarded numerous copies are requesting more than $100 a pop, while others are requesting absolutely outrageous amounts of money venturing well into the thousands.

Thankfully, there does not seem any bids on any of the higher-priced ones and there are still some much more affordable listings, closer to the suggested RRP – still, its not a great outlook for this video game, when stock begins to run dry.
While a digital copy would typically be a choice in this scenario, sadly, Nintendo has clearly decided to pull this variation of Super Mario 3D All-Stars. If you have not already protected your copy of this three-in-one Mario game collection, we recommend you act quick and take what you can get (without breaking the bank).
Significantly, we saw the same thing with the limited release of the Sanrio amiibo cards last week. Are you at all shocked to see the rates of Marios physical collection increasing? Did you protect a copy yourself? Tell us down below.
