Tonight, on the Stevetendo show, we’re getting back into one of my favorite games, Super Mario Brothers 3. The gameplay is going to have a slightly different feel to it since it will be the Game Boy Advance version of Super Mario 3 instead of the NES original. The Nintendo Switch Online version is the GBA version with the addition of the e-Reader levels built into the game. For those who aren’t aware, the e-Reader was a Game Boy Advance add-on that allowed the player to swipe special cards with bar codes to spice up a playing experience. Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald took advantage of this by adding special trainer battles.That being said, there were classic NES games re-released for the e-Reader as well.

Super Mario Brothers 3 did something a little different and brought brand new levels with classic gameplay mechanics to the game. The plan is to play a full playthrough of Super Mario 3 as well as play the e-Reader levels. It’s almost Halloween so what better way to start the month off right than with Super Mario wearing different costumes. Set to go live at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET, join the Stevetendo show for the start of a Super Mario 3 playthrough.

There are quite a few Super Mario games coming out soon and those are already planned for the Stevetendo show. There might also be a Detective Pikachu sighting on the show as well. That being said, keep coming up with games you’d like to see played on the show.
