The website Nintendo Everything has confirmed the release of a new game on the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console. That game is “Mario Bros.,” and it was released on January 30, 2014. This game was originally released in North America on the NES in 1986. It has been re-released many times over the years, and it has now come to the Nintendo 3DS.

“Mario Bros.” is the first game in the Mario Bros. franchise and, despite its age, is still quite unique compared to other games in the series. The game plays very differently from other games in the franchise. The game takes place in a pipe system where enemies will appear to try and hurt Mario. Mario can jump underneath the enemies to hit the platform they are on, causing them to flip over. This will allow him to kick the enemy off the stage, defeating it.

The goal of the game is to survive as long as possible and score points. As the game progresses, the enemies become much more difficult to defeat. Some enemies will take multiple attacks to knock over, and others do special actions, such as freezing the platforms.

The game is very simple to pick up and play, but it can be very hard to master. This game also marks the first appearance of Luigi, where he is controlled by the second player.
