Another new Special Battle event is happening right now in Super Mario Bros. 35, the free-to-play multiplayer Mario game for Switch Online subscribers. This event is called the Limited Course Special Battle, and as its name suggests, it restricts the level selection to a handful of specific stages.
During this Special Battle event, players will only play through World 3-1 to 4-4. The latter stage in particular should make this event hectic, as you’ll need to follow a specific path through the maze-like castle in order to reach Bowser at the end. This event only runs through the weekend, ending at 11:59 PM PT on October 18 (2:59 AM ET on October 19).
The Limited Course Special Battle is coming to #SuperMarioBros35, featuring World 3-1 to World 4-4!

As previously mentioned, Super Mario Bros. 35 is a free download exclusive for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers. The game was released as part of Nintendo’s Super Mario 35th anniversary celebration, but much like Super Mario 3D All-Stars, it’s not a permanent addition to Switch’s library; Nintendo says the game will only be available to play until March 31, 2021.
