Why is Super Mario Bros. 3 being on eShop in NA such a big deal for Nintendo?

What's the big deal? I have it on SNES still.


I have Super Mario All-Stars for Wii. Upgraded graphics and no glitches.
Best version, imo. I could never get into the original game. Not colorful enough.


i actually disagree. the SNES version has paler, pastel colors while the NES version is more neon and vivid.

that said, the WiiU version is dulled down a bit. on my CRT and NES, the game practically glows with bright neon blues, yellows, pinks, reds, greens, etc. but on WiiU it's kinda dull...

anyway, i prefer the NES version by a mile.

1.) superior color palette (neon > pastel)
2.) 8bit music sounds more charming than the 16bit versions
3.) no saving = more replaying = new players actually learn the secrets (in my experience, everyone who grew up with the SNES version knows half as many of the secrets as me and my friends who grew up with the NES version)

plus, the main draw for most people is the save feature (which in my opinion is a detriment to its design, with the secrets and such) which is made up for with savestates on WiiU anyway. so if you wanna use them, you still have access.

as far as i'm concerned, NES version all the way.

I ended up getting Golden Sun instead.

Never played Golden Sun either, SMB3 is easily Top 10 personal favorites but i'm burnt out on Mario platformers.

Ready for Kart, Smash, and Mario Golf.

But MOST of ALL....

Ready for ZELDA U!

I'm wondering if they will surprise announce Cross Buy at sometime this month.


I wonder when that quick start update will come out.

Considering how big of a deal over 50% of the board was making with each delay of the release of this on the eshop, I can't blame Nintendo for making this big of a deal that it's finally been released.


problem is they kinda made it need to be a big deal.

i mean yes it's one of the greatest games ever made, but so is Super Mario World. thing is, they VC-released SMW on time, a long time ago. so it wasn't necessary to make a big deal out of it. but if they promised SMW a year ago, and then withheld it forever and FINALLY let it release, then they would do the same thing.
it shouldn't have been a big deal, if they actually just put it out on time. it's a game people want and love, and it makes sense to just put it on the VC. unfortunately it just took forever and people just really wanted it so they were like, "See?! look how awesome we are! we released it on VC!" but it's like, no dude, that's not awesome. we love the game, but it's lame to withhold it for so long.

This...all the way. I could never play the NES version. It would burn my eyes.
