Has any other nintendo system launched without a mario game?

Super Mario Sunshine wasn't a launch title? I thought my friend got it really early on... I'm probably misremembering.

What about the Wii? I can't think of a Mario game that launched with it.

GC launched in November (2001), SMS in August (2002).

I think it was established earlier in the thread that the Wii didn't have a Mario game at launch.

Mario Clash was on the VB as a launch title... it was a remake of the original Mario Bros. It counts more than Mario Tennis.

Mario Clash wasn't a launch game.

They're teasing their fans by giving them excitement about upcoming games, in 2 years, there'll be a good amount of Mario and Zelda (maybe not much Zelda)

Luigi's Mansion counts as a Mario game.

And the Wii didn't really have any launch title at all (Twilight Princess was just a port of a GameCube game).

But it ended up coming out before the GC one.

Fair enough, did not realize Mario Clash was about two months later than the VB launch. Although doesn't Nintendo normally classify the launch window as 2-3 months?
