Nintendo 3DS Unearths Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Can you take on a harder Super Mario Bros. in The Lost Levels? The retro gem is now on the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console.

Known in Japan as Super Mario Bros. 2, the game was the direct sequel to the bestselling debut for the plumber pair, originally released on the NES in Japan back in 1986.

It was the first game to offer varying mechanics between Luigi and Mario, and was only released in Japan as a hard/retail copy. Since then, The Lost Levels has been packaged as part of Super Mario All-Stars for the SNES and is available in its original form on  the Wii Virtual Console.

Now players can return to the 80s classic on the Nintendo 3DS, available on the eShop from today for £4.49 (€4.99).

Will you be taking on this classic Nintendo platformer on your 3DS console?

£4.99 = €4.99 or is that a typo?

I hate how Nintendo gets away with constantly reselling the same old games. I really hope the Wii U VC will be a continuation of the Wii one, instead of another reboot.

It's actually £4.49 and €4.99. Edited.

The problem is Nintendo never made a universally integrated eShop to begin with and more surprisingly never did it once both the 3DS and Wii U rolled along. It's a travesty they've trailed too far behind the times in this regard, but all we can hope is that eventually they will be integrated. But since Nintendo recently said they have no plans to do that, I can't see this happening until either quite some ways down the line or until the next set of Nintendo consoles. Sony has really got it sorted in this department, and I wish Nintendo would look at what the other companies are doing rather than doing things their own (stupid) way.

Urgh, I'm still trying the complete this nightmare of a game on the Wii's virtual console so I ain't starting again on the 3DS. :O
