Super Mario Bros. 3 on the 3DS Virtual Console and More GBA Games on Wii U

Everyone’s favorite plumbing simulator, Super Mario Bros. 3, is now available for download off of the 3DS eShop for $4.99. This is the original NES version of the game, so if you were hoping for the revamped All-Stars style GBA game, you’re gonna have to wait just a bit longer. But in the meantime, you can once again play what some consider to be the greatest NES game of all time anywhere and everywhere you go! I know I’ll be picking it up.

Meanwhile, over on the Wii U, we’ve got two more GameBoy Advance games coming out on the Virtual Console. First up is the oft forgotten F-Zero: Maximum Velocity, a game which was based on, believe it or not, the short lived F-Zero anime. Secondly is the cult early RPG hit, Golden Sun, an adventure worth checking out for those who missed it on the original handheld.

Nintendo’s support of the Virtual Console always seems a little spotty at time, but when they do give it some much needed attention, it’s always appreciated, especially in this era of emulators and such. Keep the solid titles coming, you guys!
