Released in Japan in 1988, Super Mario Bros 3 is considered one of the most influential platformers of all time and one of the best games to appear on the NES.

Nintendo backed the title with an extensive marketing campaign that saw Western gamers get their first glimpse of it in the Hollywood movie The Wizard, starring Fred Savage.

Super Mario Bros 3 was later released for SNES as part of the Super Mario All-Stars collection and later the Game Boy Advance and Wii via Virtual Console.

Nintendo is yet to confirm whether the title will be released for 3DS in the UK and US markets.
