NES Super Mario Bros. Is Japan’s Next 3DS Virtual Console Game


There’s another major NES title headed to the 3DS Virtual Console in Japan next week — Super Mario Bros. will be released for 500 yen.


Like The Legend of Zelda, early 3DS buyers received the game for free as part of the 3DS Ambassador Program earlier in the year. The official Virtual Console releases add a save state feature and support for the 3DS’ sleep mode as well. 3DS Ambassadors in Japan can grab the updated versions for free.
