Nintendo Super Mario Advance
Sorry, this product is currently unavailable.
Super Mario Advance is a collection of two classic games: the upgraded version of Super Mario Bros. 2, which appeared in the SNES compilation Super Mario All-Stars and began its life in Japan as something other than a Mario game, and a remake of the original Mario Bros. While the enhanced Super Mario Bros. 2 serves as the primary single-player mode in Super Mario Advance, the original Mario Bros. is essentially the game's multiplayer mode, in which up to four players can compete at once using the GBA link cable. It's disappointing that Nintendo chose not to create a new Mario game for the launch of the Game Boy Advance and in fact included only token enhancements in the upgraded version of Super Mario Bros. 2. Having said that, Super Mario Advance effectively highlights the power of the handheld with its brilliant, rich visuals and will provide hours of challenging fun, especially for those who haven't played the original games on which it is based.
