10 More Nintendo Classics That Need a Switch Enhanced Release
Super Mario Bros. 3
While Super Mario Bros. 3 is already reported to have a Switch Online port, the game really deserves an enhanced release. Widely lauded as the best iteration of 2D Mario games, it acted as a prime example of the series strengths. Releasing in 1988 on the NES, the game diversified the Mario palette, bringing new suits, power-ups, and generally a more intensive level design philosophy. As everyone knows, Mario is perfect for almost any control scheme or portable play, so an enhanced edition would shine on Switch.
An enhanced edition of Mario Bros. 3, designed to make it more accessible, could improve power-up frequency while offering tools for speeding up play, opening up the map, allowing the warp whistle from the start, and streamlining the title for handheld play.
