BS Super Mario Collection
Ads keep the MarioWiki independent and free :)
BS Super Mario Collection is a remix of Super Mario Collection (the Japanese name for Super Mario All-Stars) for the Satellaview, an add-on for the Super Famicom. The game was released in four installments. As the game played, streamed audio would enhance the gameplay experience with special music and voice acting featuring Japanese celebrities. Unfortunately, information on it is sparse and incomplete at this time. Its "companion title" is BS Super Mario USA.
Note: it was discovered in late 2015 that Dai-3-shuu's data contained the data for Dai-2-shuu. A patch was made to make this installment playable.
Dai-1-shuu: Super Mario Bros. - Mario transverses a unique overworld. He chooses from three initial levels in a world, then when the timer runs out he moves on to the castle. Saving Toad earns him the Spade Panel round with multiple continues, then the game moves on to the next world (If the player collects enough points they will skip a world). Supposedly, Worlds 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 are available. In the meantime, voice commentary is supplied by Mario and Yuuki Nae, a Satellaview Radio Personality.
Release Date Info
Being episodic, BS Super Mario Collection was released on a weekly basis. Info on the four releases is as follows:
The timeframe they initially broadcasted was likely 7PM. The programs may have re-aired a various amount of times, but more indepth schedules are necessary to know exactly how many.
The Satellaview's Soundlink-capabilities allowed music to be streamed via Satellite radio. This game used this to enhance it's soundtrack with songs that could not be performed via the Super Famicom's soundchips.
As the game played, music from the Super Mario World Soundtrack and Super Mario Bros. 1, 2, 3, Hop! Step! Jump! - as well as strangely-picked licensed music would play in place of standard Super Mario music. Some of the licensed music choices include "The Power of Love" by Huey Lewis and The News and "The NeverEnding Story"
