Happy 20th anniversary Mario!
yeah, I know I’m one day late, but gimme a break…..
Super Mario is celebrating its 20th anniversary. (Thanks to Mari for reminding me through her blog.) Yes, the first version of Super Mario Brothers was released on September 13, 1985! Amazing how fast time goes by! I still remember playing the original game on my famicom (NES for you Americans) and how incredibly fun it was! I had never seen anything like it at the time (did PacLand come out before or after Super Mario, though? After I think….)
Anyway, to commemorate the 20th anniversary, Nintendo has released the Game Boy Micro which is a really really small version of the Game Boy Advanced. Actually, looking at the specs of the different models, the Micro seems a bit improved over previous version, in spite of its size!
They also released a special version of the Game Boy Micro which looks like the old Famicom-controllers! Neat! (Tons of other special editions listed here)
