Nintendo has announced that a special Nintendo Direct focusing on The Super Mario Bros. movie will take place on March 9.
Announced in a tweet from Nintendo of America (below), the Direct will definitely reveal the film’s final trailer, but it isn’t clear if it will include any news or updates beyond that. It will take place at 2pm Pacific / 5pm Eastern / 10pm UK (so 8am on March 10 AEST).
What Nintendo did make clear, however, is that no video game information will be included in the Direct, meaning it is solely focusing on the upcoming film as opposed to including slew of announcements from different Nintendo properties.
Join us at 2:00 p.m. PT on 3/9 for the world premiere of The Super Mario Bros. Movie’s final trailer! No game information will be included in this #NintendoDirect. #SuperMarioMovie

The premiere of The Super Mario Bros movie isn’t far away either, as fans of the franchise can finally watch it in cinemas on March 30.
We’ve slowly but surely been learning more about the film as this date approaches, including that it will run for a brisk 92 minutes, feature an improvised song from an unlikely character, and more.
It’s also chock-full of Mario references, including to Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros, the original live action Mario series, and just about every franchise character you can think of.
