Yesterday brought forth the news via Famitsu that Nintendo had registered-- or perhaps re-registered-- a trademark for "Super Mario Collection," which was the Japanese name for what we in the West know as Super Mario All-Stars.
The easiest conclusion to draw was that this was to pave the way for a Virtual Console release, but that seems almost too obvious. In addition, many fans have long held that Nintendo was unlikely to release it to the service, as the four original games and Super Mario World are all already present and accounted for.
So what would the other option be? Our guess is possibly that of a release for the Nintendo DS, perhaps targeted specifically to Nintendo DSi owners. Why?
