The Nintendo Direct will include a final trailer for the film, which is set to debut in April 2023.

Nintendo has announced a brand new Nintendo Direct, set to air in March 2023 – although it has made clear this showcase will solely spotlight The Super Mario Bros. Movie, with no new game announcements on the way. It seems the dedicated Direct will include the standalone final trailer for the upcoming film only.

Given we’ve already got several meaty glimpses at the film – including looks at Donkey Kong, Bowser, Peach, Toad, and plenty of other guests stars – this makes sense. We know a lot about what to expect, and Nintendo is likely keen to keep other surprises close to its chest.

While this latest showcase is stretching the bounds of the ‘Nintendo Direct’ label, it should still be worth tuning in for. Every trailer revealed for the upcoming Super Mario Bros. adaptation so far has been an absolute delight and another, final teaser is most welcome.

Given the teaser image posted by Nintendo includes the famous Mario Karts in action, it’s likely this final trailer will give more attention to the dramatic race across Rainbow Road, first seen in earlier glimpses at the film.
