A post on the official website of Nintendo has confirmed that as promised, the game will be made available to all those who own a Japanese Wii U on December 25.

If you are looking forward to it, you will be able to get it on your Wii U for 500 yen.

Super Mario Bros 3 has not yet been released to the American and European eShops though it has been released to Japanese 3DS Virtual Console.

Fr the few among you who do not know, Super Mario Bros 3 takes the game a step further by adding flying and floating to the traditional running and jumping elements of the game.

Mario and Luigi, upon Princess Toadstool’s command are up against Bowser and his children who have stolen the king’s magic wand and are terrorizing the kings of Mushroom World.
