UK Video Game Retailer Cancels Super Mario 3D All-Stars Pre-Orders Due To ‘Lack Of Stock’

Super Mario 3D All-Stars

UK-based video game retailer Base has cancelled all pre-orders of Super Mario 3D All-Stars due to a lack of stock.

As first reported by My Nintendo News, Base issued an email out to several customers, informing them that their pre-order of the collection, which includes Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy, has been cancelled due to its “woefully short” lack of stock of the game.

The full email, which was shared by ResetEra user Geobros, reads: “We have just been notified of our allocation of Super Mario 3D All-Stars (Nintendo Switch) and it is woefully short. This is very disappointing and it is with regret that we have to inform you that we will be unable to fulfil your order on the day of release.

“Further, as Nintendo and their UK distributors are unable to give us any reassurance that more stock will become available after release, we have taken the regrettable decision to cancel all orders.”

Further in the ResetEra thread, user TeaLeaf claims that the store will be getting a second bath of game copies in mid-November, although no other details were shared.

The news comes as criticism regarding Nintendo’s handing of the collection and its limited-time release continues to rise. Although Base has cancelled pre-orders, the game is still available to pre-order via UK sites such as Amazon, GAME,, and more, and we suggest UK users who want a physical edition pre-order from there.

Super Mario 3D All-Stars is set to release September 18th on the Nintendo Switch and will have a limited-time release until March 2021.
