So celebrate it. The VC price structure works in our favour for once, making this multi-layered 8 bit classic an absolutely indecent bargain. Download it. Thank me later. Or thank Miyamoto-san. He did most of the work.

SMB3 cannot come any more highly recommended. It is widely regarded as the best game on the NES by many. Some would even say it rivals the magnificent Super Mario World on the SNES though the jury is out on that one. You owe it to yourself to try both out and decide for yourself.

Those who already love Super Mario Bros. 3 and have the desire to play the original NES version again will be pleased with this Virtual Console release. It's like reconnecting with a best friend that you haven't seen since you were little. Meanwhile, those who haven't yet immersed themselves in its jump-heavy sweetness have been given a golden opportunity to do so. This is 500 Wii points ($5) well spent.

Malgré le poids des années, Super Mario Bros. 3 est et reste un excellent jeu. On prend toujours autant son pied à parcourir chacun des niveaux qui composent l'aventure, à grands coups de sauts et de glissades. Pour ce troisième opus de la série, Nintendo a fourni un travail tel que, même vingt ans après, la formule fonctionne toujours. Si la réalisation est forcément à la traine de nos jours, son petit prix de 500 Wii Points est là pour compenser et faire craquer les joueurs les plus indécis. Un grand classique du jeu vidéo, à (re)découvrir immédiatement !
