There's another Princess that needs to be saved and an evil doctor that needs to be put in his place! Yesterday, December 27th, 2012, two classic Nintendo titles from the 80's became available as Virtual Console downloads, from the Nintendo 3DS eShop; Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels and Mega Man. If you're looking for two excuses to relive the nostalgic roots of your childhood, from within your hands, this is the perfect opportunity. Both Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels and Mega Man can be purchased from the North American eShop for $4.99 or from the European eShop for £4.49 / €4.99. Please note that this version of Mega Man became available in the European 3DS eShop on October 18th, 2012.

Originally released in Japan as Super Mario Bros. 2 on June 3rd, 1986, Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels provides fans with new-and-improved gameplay over Super Mario Bros., the original title in the Super Mario series. While a familiar look and feel and classic enemy cast are present, don't be fooled.

Poisonous Mushrooms, backward Warp Pipes and gusts of wind will surely have your knuckles turning white and your thumb continuously drifting toward the start button to continue a game. Players can choose to play between either Mario or Luigi, right from the start.

Originally released in December of 1987, Mega Man is back and still has all of the goodness it had back then. The evil Dr. Wily has plans to rule the world, and he's willing to do anything to successfully fulfill that task. Only this time, you'll be playing it comfortably on your Nintendo 3DS.

Take on the role of the Blue Bomber, as you traverse though this challenging platform side-scroller littered with relentless enemies and booby traps. Do you have what it takes to defeat Dr. Wily and his Robot Master gang. It's up to you and he's willing to do anything to stop you.

These are probably the best new additions to the North American 3DS eShop in a good long time. Will definitely be getting these.
It is about time we got these titles.
Wonderful!  I will probably be getting mega man.
I downloaded Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels. Man, I forgot how hard that game is. Today's platforming challenges are so much easier. If anyone here likes challenges, and hasn't played this game, I'd highly recommend it.

If you want more added challenge, play with Waweeegeeee! He seems to have more skills in the vertical depatment, but slides all over the place, like he's always on a sheet of ice.
Definitely getting SMB Lost Levels!
