Today's Nintendo Direct revealed some more information about a few upcoming releases but there was room for some older classic titles too.

For example, Super Mario Bros. 2 is available to download from the 3DS Virtual Console in Europe right now for £4.49/€4.99.

The game was released back in 1988 on the NES and is a little different to its predecessor. In fact it's largely seen as the black sheep of Mario games, but that's not to say it's not an enjoyable experience, quite the contrary. It's just, different.

It's been out in North America for a while now, so it's nice for Europe to have access to this right away. You can see what we think to it in our Super Mario Bros. 2 review.
