Arcade Archives VS. Super Mario Bros.
Last week, Hamster released the second Nintendo Arcade Archives title on Nintendo Switch: VS. Super Mario Bros.. It’s an Arcade port of the NES game (which is rather unusual: at that time, arcade to console ports were much more frequent than the opposite!). But it’s not a 1:1 port: there are various differences between the NES and Arcade versions of the game.
Unsurprisingly, the Arcade version is slightly harder (you can’t have players reach the end too easily… not when they have to pay each time they want to play!), with “adjusted” enemy and obstacle placements in levels. There’s also other differences, such as the Warp Zone in 4-2 only having a pipe leading to World 6.
If you’ve already played Super Mario Bros. on NES (or any of the re-releases), you don’t really need to play VS. Super Mario Bros.. But if you’re really curious about this version of the game, it’s definitely worth checking out. And, well… Super Mario Bros. is hardly the worst game to replay (even for the umptieth time)!
Finally, here’s some more screenshots for the game:
This week, the following games are featured in Famitsu magazine:
- Splatoon 2 (Nintendo Switch, already available worldwide)
