Super Mario Bros. 3 Floats onto 3DS and Wii U

It’s taken much, much, MUCH longer than it should have, but today Nintendo has finally released Super Mario Bros. 3 on the 3DS and Wii U Virtual Consoles. The platformer, originally released on the NES  in 1990, is generally regarded as one of the best games of all time, and introduced several elements that have defined Mario games ever since. It can be yours for $4.99 on either 3DS or Wii U, but unfortunately there is no cross-buy support. Beggars can’t be choosers, I suppose.
