About The Game

Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels is a true video game treasure.

Released only in Japan, this sequel to the smash hit platformer was never brought to the west in its original NES version. Later released on Virtual Console for Wii, now you can experience this rare classic in all its 8-bit glory on your Nintendo 3DS.

The Lost Levels expands on Super Mario Bros. with tough new level designs, trickier enemies, and new features like fierce winds that blow Mario away. It's the ultimate challenge for any Mario fan. Are you up to the task?

Note: This game was added to Europe's Wii Shop on the 14th of September, 2007 as a temporarily available "collectors' item". It was then removed on the 1st of October, 2007. On the 22nd August 2008 it was made available permanently.
