So after downloading my 10 games off eShop I decided to play some classic Super Mario Bros. I was disappointed to discover that the B and A buttons on the NES are mapped to the B and A buttons on the 3DS respectively. This really throws me off. Remember how in Super Mario World they changed running to the Y button and jumping to the B button? That's because it's a lot less awkward to hold the run button while jumping that way.
I checked the menu screen and out of the two options there, none had to do with controls. The 2 paged manual didn't help much either. It may not matter so much in games like Zelda or Yoshi, but it really bugs me in SMB. Does anyone else feel awkward with this control scheme, or am I just crazy?

I'm used to the Press A to Jump Press B to Run/Shoot/Sword/Whatever button mapping, so it doesn't bother me.

I'm not bothered. It seems fine to me.

Yeah I'm well used to the A B format, it seems natural for the way I play games, but I think the ability to map you own buttons would nice. (I'm going to guess X and Y do nothing as I haven't got my downloads yet due to being in Europe)

Perhaps button mapping will come with the multiplayer update ...
Anyway, it doesn't really bother me; I've never really played SMW.

If you press Y and X at the same time it opens the menu you get when touching the touch screen

It does bothers me, it bothers me a lot!! Y run, B jump, must be the official configuration for NES games. Hope they at least give us the option on the update.

Yeah, it bothers me too. I hope we get options in the update. I originally learned to play SMB with the buttons side-by-side on the NES, constantly keeping my thumb tip holding run and rocking the base of my thumb to jump. It's totally awkward trying to play this game and having to hold my thumb at such a backwards angle or else let go of the run button to jump.

Bothers me too. I wish they'd make a setting where you could map them to the buttons you're comfortable with. Seems easy enough to do.

Yeah, Y run B jump would be much prefered for me. But after a while you do get used to this control scheme, I just prefer it the other way.
