How to do it?[edit]

There's the same exact intro text on both the Super Mario Remake Series and this page. How should we split and divide this up? Hbdragon88 20:48, 21 August 2005 (UTC)


Should the voices be mentioned?

World Clearing[edit]

In Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3, Princess Peach signed the letter "Princess Peach", although it was previously signed "Princess Toadstool" in the North American and PAL European versions of the 8-bit standalone version of Super Mario Bros. 3, and Super Mario All-Stars.

The result of the debate was move. —Nightstallion (?) 21:14, 22 January 2006 (UTC)

New Features[edit]

I have noted the following added features.

  • Voices
  • Enhanced colors, including new backgrounds
  • Remixed music
  • Rephrasing of bad translations
  • Larger inventory window
  • More animated Kings
  • 1-player Classic Mario Bros.
  • A new, longer save process

Add a section where it states the differences between this version, and the Mario All Stars version[edit]

Just some things I can tell immediately.

  • Music is slightly different
  • In the "match the scrolling pictures" minigame, sometimes a leaf picture replaces the star picture which gives a +7 to your extra lives instead of +4
  • The E reader features
  • The save system is different
  • Mario now speaks. Says, "Here I go!" when entering a stage. Says, "Momma mia!" when he dies. Says, "Ah, just what I needed!" when he gets a power-up.

There's more, but that's all I can remember for now. Malamockq 15:34, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

Series 3 and 4[edit]

Does anyone know a good e-reader series 3 or 4 website? (Superjustinbros. 20:42, 5 April 2007 (UTC))

Unreleased Switch Cards[edit]

Someone should add this info to the article (these are my observations after scanning cards modified to be compatible with the US game)

  • Blue Switch - Turns all 1up mushrooms into 3up crescent moons.
  • Cyan Switch - Shortens P-Meter
  • Green Switch - Slows down music
  • Red Switch - Replaces certain enemies with other enemies, appears to double points gained
  • Yellow Switch - Unknown (I didn't notice anything)

What about the other Super Mario Advance remakes?[edit]

None of the other games have their own articles. Why does this one get a free pass???! (talk) 22:31, 13 September 2013 (UTC)

Let me quote the reception section: "Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3 has received very positive reception, considered one of the best Game Boy Advance games ever made."
That is why. The others were not received as largely as this one was. Blake (Talk·Edits) 00:04, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
Well more accurately there's just not much that can be said about them that isn't the same deal as their original versions. This game has its own article because of the effort that was put into making it separate. - New Age Retro Hippie (talk) (contributions) 21:02, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
