Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3 is the fourth game in the Super Mario Advance series. It is a remake of Super Mario Bros. 3 for the Nintendo Entertainment System. The game also comes with the arcade game Mario Bros., which also has better graphics, and a more complex multi-player mode.

Changes from Super Mario Bros. 3

  • Mario and Luigi are given voices.
  • The R button activates the e-Reader function.
  • The inventory window is significantly larger giving the player 35 items to hold instead of 28.
  • Temporary saving is provided. Afterward, the game reverts to the previous permanent save. Permanent saves come after completion of a fortress or world.
  • It features more levels if certain cards are scanned with the e-Reader.
  • Luigi retains his updated form and his Super Mario Bros. 2 ability.
  • The Mushroom Houses now allow you to move and choose a box while the message is being displayed.
  • The "Mario & Luigi" mode is now playable in single player through handheld, and the original multiplayer through the GameCube. However, the Mario Bros. easter egg that was possible when pressing A while in the same place as the other player has been removed, most likely due to the included remake of that game.
  • Lives can now be transferred to Luigi to Mario and vice-versa, a la Super Mario World.
  • The sprites have been updated.
  • The cards have been colorized (like in the Super NES remake of Super Mario Bros. 3) and are now called "panels".

Virtual Console

The game includes all the E-reader levels even the ones not released outside Japan.
