SMB: The Lost Levels removed from EU Wii Shop
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
Sunday was the last day of September. As such, the Hanabi Festival has now come to an end, and Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels has been removed from the Wii Shop. If you didn't download it, you might've missed it forever! Nintendo stated that it was a "collectors' item", which implies that it might not return for a second chance. Still, anything's possible, so if you did miss it, just hope for the best!
To clear up the confusion which seemed to exist - No, the other Hanabi Festival games are not gone. The Lost Levels is the only game that was available for a limited time. This means you can still download Mario's Super Picross, Ninja JaJaMaru-kun, Ninja Gaiden, Gradius III and Sin and Punishment.
If you've downloaded The Lost Levels, naturally, you get to keep it. If you delete it, you can still redownload it in the Shop - The game page can not, however, be found in the normal lists - You must access it from your "Games You've Downloaded" list.
