Reckon you’ve played every Mario level? Maybe it’s time to think again.
A selection of rarely-seen levels, originally designed by Nintendo, have now been re-created via Wii U level designer Super Mario Maker.
These 30 levels were included in the Game Boy Advance release of Super Mario Bros. 3 (which was also confusingly titled Super Mario Advance 4).
But these levels were hidden away and not normally available to play. Titled as “World-e”, this selection was only unlockable with the GBA’s rare e-Reader peripheral and its series of even rarer Super Mario Advance collectible cards.
Now, you don’t need any of that to play them – as a fan has re-created the whole selection in Mario Maker (well, almost – there are three levels that feature items not yet found in Mario Maker’s toolkit).
Posting via Reddit, Mario fans Baddboy78 and theycallmeshaky revealed their version of World-e, along with a download code for each level:
