Multiple Mario Games Forum  /  Switch category suggestion
  PinkyNoicePinkyNoice

Ive thought of 2 speedrun categories which could be entertaining to run and only require one console.

Switch 3D collection Any%
and
Switch collection Any%

During the switch 3D collection you would run in no particular order
All-Stars Galaxy 60 star
All-Stars Sunshine Any%
All-Stars SM64 70 star
Super Mario Odyssey Any%
Super Mario 3D world deluxe any%
Bowsers Fury Any% No amiibo

During the full collection you run
Switch Online NES - SMB any%, SMB2-J Any%, SMB3 Any%
Switch Online SNES - Super Mario World,
All-Stars Galaxy 60 star
All-Stars Sunshine Any%
All-Stars SM64 70 star
Super Mario Odyssey Any%
Super Mario 3D world deluxe any%
Bowsers Fury Any% No amiibo

Thanks for listening to my TED talk

Seems like a cool idea although it has a few problems.
- When a new mario game comes out for the switch the category will be obsolete which also happens to console series meaning two different categories become legacy.
- The "full collection" run does not include Super Mario Maker 2 Story Mode or any New Super Mario Bros U. Deluxe content.
- Requiring the All-Stars release which is limited time meaning that in the future this category will be exclusive to those who have All-Stars.

Sounds neat as an idea but the All-Stars problem is a very big problem for this idea. But thats the fault of Nintendo. As always with any category ideas: if enough people actually do runs of it, we'll make a category for it.

I personally am not a fan of Multi Mario runs with games that are not part of the mainline games, but in this run it makes sense to include them (like with NSLU in NSMB Series). You did also miss SMB2-U as part of the NES games, that game also exists. So this would be the complete game list:
SMB, SMB:TLL, SMB2, SMB3, SMW, SM64, SMS, SMG, NSMBU, NSLU, 3DW, BF, SMM2, SMO
*Going with the US/EU names for the NES games

Just mainline games would make up the full Switch collection run like this:
SMB, SMB:TLL, SMB2, SMB3, SMW, SM64, SMS, SMG, NSMBU, 3DW, SMO

Thats almost Console Series at this point as a little fun fact, just SMW is 11 Exit as Any% cause I don't think we know how to make a 0 Exit run work on that, SM64 is 70 Star as Any% cause no BLJs. And 2 games are missing aswell obviously, NSMBW and SMG2 are the missing games compared to that, which more than makes up for the 2 slower categories if we look at Any%. That means length wise this is more than doable. Even with the 3 non-mainline games (NSLU, SMM2 and BF) this is still shorter which is perfect. It just sucks that the category name itself requires everything to be run on Switch, in almost all cases the most expensive way to get the games so it gets kinda inaccessible at times.

I only focused on the run that included more than just the 3D games in terms of listing facts. The run that only has the 3D games is very very similar to already existing runs but just no SMG2 and BF for it instead.

As already stated at the start of this, if enough people do a run of this then yes sure we'll make it a thing. Maybe this will help people get interested in it. I personally just don't like BF as a speedrun so I'm not pushing for it myself, but will also run it if others do cause I want to flex with having run all categories Keepo
