    Really tempted about Star Wars Pinball, but that price is a bit too high. Maybe if they have it at 50% off in the future.

    What would be cool is if, with Super Mario Bros 2, they also included a version with the original graphics from Doki Doki Panic.

    I’ve always been curious what the game looks like that they turned into the US-titled Super Mario Bros 2.

    Still I always wonder why the 3DS VC can’t get super mario world, but this isn’t so bad

    • I know right ? It´s like if they don´t like our money or something, also the Wii U keeps getting the good games, but can´t blame them at all, we know the catalogue of games on it is not that great.

        True, still it seems absurd some of the games that the Wii or Wiiu gets but the 3DS or DSi was passed by

  • Hairee Pothead

    This is the first time that the original and full 240P resolution version can be played on handheld. There was a portable version a decade ago on GBA but it was the SNES version being ran at half the resolution of a 2D Home Console which limits the view of the game field and it had aweful voice-overs. Now Mario will shut up on the latest handheld version of the game. It’s Quite a shame 8 bit Sonic 2 is a inferior half resolution of the Master System game on 3DS though.
