According to gamespot.com, Super Mario Bros. (Originally made for the NES) will be given as a bonus gift with the lucky winners of the famicom special edition GBA (from which only 3000 have been made). The game seems to be a port of the original with no graphics update, according to the article anyway.

If I see the NES (or famicom) edition GBA, I'll probably end up getting it and keeping it for collector's sake.

As for SMB - atleast it wont have that damn Mario Bros game that's featured in every other port of a Mario game - and atleast it will have a lack of save features which made the original so hard - and good!

If it does happen anyway.

It's a nice update of a classic, wouldn't have taken much effort and is better than nothing.

I'm all for it.
