Super Mario All-Stars Making A Return Appearance?

Super Mario All-StarsUPDATE: More speculation and wish-listing.

Plenty of us have fond memories of Nintendo's Super Mario All-Stars for the Super NES in which the classic Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Bros. 3, and the then-exclusive Japanese release we known to overseas audiences as The Lost Levels were given a 16-bit redesign and bundled onto a single game pak (Nintendo later added a slightly altered Super Mario World to the set).  Kombo has word that the Japanese gaming tome Famitsu mentions a renewed trademark for the compilation's Japanese title, Super Mario Collection.  Could the game be on the way back in some fashion? 

So what does this mean exactly? Well, I for one would consider the possibility of either a Virtual Console or DS release. The former sounds much more probable, however, seeing as how the Wii already has those individual titles on the Virtual Console. It is also likely to be a DS release simply because the DSi lacks the ability to play Game Boy Advance titles, and as such cannot play the Super Mario Advance games. Again, this is only speculation and definitely not fact. This wouldn't be the first time a trademark didn't become a game.

Personally, I think that if the game is headed to the Nintendo DS (and don't reject this quite so fast; remember that the Super NES title Kirby Super Star made an updated appearance on the platform last year), then I think this is the perfect opportunity to give the handheld Super Mario Land and Super Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins a modern makeover for inclusion in the All-Stars package.  That would give those of us who still enjoy the original All-Stars from time to time an excuse to dive into the new package.
