It's a big day for the Game Boy's Mario Land series. The rather splendid Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins became available on the 3DS Virtual Console, and its follow-up has taken the first step towards the same fate thanks to Australia's OFLC ratings board.

Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 marks the first leading role for Bizarro-Mario and kicked off an exceptional series known for taking a more experimental approach to platformers. It also just so happens to be among the best that the handheld has to offer, regardless of genre.

Start stockpiling pirate gold for when this one drops at whatever time Nintendo pushes the "fun" button. In the meantime, enjoy the glory of this 1994 commercial for the game. Remember, you are handsome and greed is great.
