Nintendo DS:

New Super Mario Bros. is a side-scrolling 2.5D action-adventure platformer game released for the Nintendo DS in 2006, starring Mario and Luigi. It is notable for being the first side-scrolling platformer in the Mario series in 13½ years (discounting re-releases and remakes), with the last sidescroller before it being 1992's Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins. The game features a solo story mode with Mario or Luigi, a two-player wireless Mario Vs. Luigi mode, as well as a minigame mode for up to four players. The multiplayer games support both single-card and multi-card play. Most of the minigames are the same as those featured in Super Mario 64 DS, which are no longer required to be unlocked.New Super Mario Bros. - Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

New Super Mario Bros. is the first Mario platformer to be originally released outside Japan since Super Mario Bros. 2, and is the first Mario game to be officially localized to Spanish for Latin America, but only on re-releases. It received a follow-up game for the Wii, New Super Mario Bros. Wii in 2009, and eventually a sequel for the Nintendo 3DS, New Super Mario Bros. 2, in 2012.

In 2015, the game was re-released on the Wii U's Virtual Console.

Bowser Jr. about to kidnap Peach

Mario (or Luigi) and Princess Peach are walking together around Peach's Castle, when a mysterious thundercloud appears and strikes the castle with lightning. Mario goes to investigate, but while he is there, Bowser Jr. sneaks behind a bush, kidnaps Peach and flees. Mario gives chase, and Bowser Jr. drags her behind him. While Mario is chasing Bowser Jr., they go off-screen, and Mario takes a hit, reverting into his smaller form. Bowser Jr. runs away and Mario continues to chase him.

In the intro where the player keeps the title screen idle, after the part where Mario starts chasing Bowser Jr., Mario retreats from an incoming green Koopa Shell, and takes the hit off-screen. He continues to chase Bowser Jr. after jumping to hit the game's logo back into place.

In an alternate intro, Luigi walks into the scene before the green Koopa shell follows after Mario. Mario and Luigi both run from the shell simultaneously, and take the hit off-screen. Mario then jumps to fix the game's logo and runs after Bowser Jr. Luigi, who is far behind, follows after Mario in a desperate attempt to catch up to him.New Super Mario Bros. - Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

Bowser and Bowser Jr. in the final boss fight

The end of the first world has Bowser as its boss and after Mario or Luigi presses a switch that destroys the floor, Bowser falls into a pit of lava. Bowser's skin is burned off and he becomes a skinless, Dry Bones-like version of himself, named Dry Bowser. Later, at the game's final world, Mario or Luigi has to face this undead version of Bowser as the penultimate boss. Dry Bowser falls into a pit, but Bowser Jr. somehow finds his father's bones, and he revives him by tossing his remains into a cauldron, which results in not only Bowser resurrected, but him roughly three times in size. Mario or Luigi, Bowser, and Bowser Jr. then proceed to battle. Princess Peach is watching with fear from a platform above.

In the end, Mario or Luigi defeats Bowser and his son, sending the two into another pit and saving Peach. The platform breaks, and Peach gives Mario or Luigi a kiss, which the hero responds to with a nervous chuckle. Then they return to the castle together, and the credits roll. After the ending sequence, Bowser Jr. is shown dragging his unconscious father across the castle floor. When he notices the player watching him, he growls at the player and then continues on dragging his father.New Super Mario Bros. - Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia


Mario, near the end of World 1-1.

The gameplay of New Super Mario Bros. is very much like that of the classic 2D platformers, mostly Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Bros. 3, and substantially builds upon them to create gameplay both classic and contemporary. One of the two control modes can be selected in the Options menu: jumping with/and dashing with/ , or jumping with/and dashing with/ . Mario is controlled with the , and the Touch Screen is only required to activate the stored item, which is used similarly to stored items in Super Mario World. When Mario enters a pipe to a secret area, the top screen and the touch screen are switched, and the gameplay continues on the touch screen until Mario exits that area. During that period the stored item cannot be activated.

The Wall Jump makes its first appearance in a 2D game since being introduced to 3D Mario games starting with Super Mario 64. In contrast to the 3D games, Mario has to slide down a wall for a small amount of time before being able to jump. This technique lets Mario or Luigi reach new areas by bouncing off the side of any wall or vertical object, and is useful for escaping from a fall down a pit. Mario has the ability to Ground Pound by pressing down when he is in the air, allowing him to crush blocks under him. There are many new power-ups, like the Blue Shell that lets Mario or Luigi to travel like a kicked Koopa shell, the Mega Mushroom that makes Mario grow about three to five times his size (similarly to the mushroom seen in Super Mario 64 DS), and the Mini Mushroom which causes Mario or Luigi to shrink to about half of Small Mario's size, allowing him to fit through tiny pipes and passages, jump higher and longer, and dash across the top of water. However, some items remain unchanged, such as the Super Mushroom, the Starman, and the Fire Flower.New Super Mario Bros. - Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

As in Super Mario Bros. 3 and later games, Mario or Luigi does not power down to Small form if he is powered up with a Fire Flower or Blue Koopa Shell when he takes damage; he instead reverts to Super Mario, unlike in Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario World.

A text box for the hidden Challenge Mode.

Another secret is Challenge Mode. This means the player cannot scroll the camera to the left or downward like in Super Mario Bros. It is only available when the player has completed the game. To unlock it, the player should go to the map screen (any world) and press , then press , , , , , , , . It will also show an arrow pointing right on the world maps and levels touch screen. This means that Mario cannot turn back in all the courses (including towers), which adds the feeling of the original game even more.New Super Mario Bros. - Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

It is also possible to play as Luigi in single player mode by holding down ++ when selecting a file. There are no gameplay differences between the brothers. The character does not get locked as default - players can choose a different character every time they load the game. After the final boss has been beaten, a star appears next to the Save Game function. When the player has completed all levels, there are two stars next to it. When the player collects and spends all the Star Coins in the game, there will be three stars on the save file.

Within the levels, whenever the music plays a vocal riff "bah bah" (or in the case of the underwater levels, bell trees), some enemies and power-ups move to the beat. This includes the Overworld, Athletic, Underground, Desert, Beach and Volcano themes. Examples of enemy/object movements include Goombas hopping, Koopa Troopas turn to face the player, Spinies switch direction, power-ups hop and Cheep-Cheeps do side flips. Goombas can actually dodge a Koopa Shell with the hop. This also happens in every other game in the New Super Mario Bros. line.

If Mario finishes a level with the last 2 numbers of the time limit the same except for 00, the "Course Clear" theme from Super Mario Bros. plays in place of the normal one. Fireworks also occur, appearing the amount the numbers specify (e.g. 2 blasts for x22, 7 blasts for x77). A Toad House will also appear on the first space of that specific world (unless there is one there already).New Super Mario Bros. - Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

Worlds and levels[edit]

The game features a world map, with alternative and secret paths (like Super Mario World). Alternate paths can be unlocked with Star Coins. There are three in each level, usually adding an extra challenge for the player apart from simply reaching the flagpole. Some Star Coins are in clear sight while others are hidden in Warp Pipes, up Beanstalks, or other inconspicuous places. On the world map, signs block paths that require five Star Coins to open. After a player defeats Bowser and Bowser Jr. in Bowser's Castle, a new, mysterious Blue Toad House will appear just above World 1. It is a market, and for 20 Star Coins, the player can buy a wallpaper for the bottom screen. The fifth and final background is only available after all of the 32 Star Coin Signs have been opened. Sometimes Hammer Bros. and Flying ? Blocks appear on the map; offering items within the beginning of the level.

Mario or Luigi only has to go through 3 of the eight worlds — using the World 1 cannon to go to World 5, and World 5 cannon to World 8. After World 2, Mario gets to either of World 3 or World 4, and the world following both of those is World 5. After World 5, Mario can get to either World 6 or 7 in the same fashion. Mario or Luigi must defeat the World 2 or World 5 bosses in Mini Mario form to instead reach World 4 and World 7, respectively.New Super Mario Bros. - Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

WorldPreviewInformationWorld 1The basic grassland world. Many first worlds have a similar, grassy layout. The boss in this world is Bowser. If Mario or Luigi reach the secret exit of the first tower, they unlock a cannon leading to World 5.World 2The desert world, similar to World 2 of Super Mario Bros. 3. The boss in this world is Mummipokey. If Mario or Luigi defeat Mummipokey as Mini Mario or Mini Luigi, they will be able to gain access to World 4. This world's cannon can be unlocked by clearing the secret exit of 2-3, then clearing the secret exit of 2-A. The cannon will lead them to World 5.World 3The island/ocean world. It mostly has beach-like levels, but many of the levels are underwater. The boss of this world is Cheepskipper. This world also introduces the first Ghost House. This world's cannon leads to World 6.World 4The forest world composed of plants and purple poisonous swamps, which can only be accessed via defeating Mummipokey as Mini Mario or Mini Luigi. The boss in this world is Mega Goomba. This world's cannon leads to World 7.World 5The ice world composed of snowy grounds and a frozen lake, with Petey Piranha as the boss. Mario or Luigi can access World 7 if they defeat Petey Piranha as Mini Mario or Mini Luigi. If they access the cannon of this world, they will be able to access World 8. This is the last world containing a cannon.World 6The rocky mountain world, with Monty Tank as the boss. It is the first world containing two towers and is mainly the home of the Bullet Bills and is the only one to feature Chain Chomps.World 7The sky world, with Lakithunder as the boss. It can only be accessed via defeating Petey Piranha as Mini Mario or Mini Luigi or by using the cannon in World 4.World 8The dark forest world. In the second half of the world it turns to a volcanic theme, with two towers, a castle, and Bowser's Castle. The bosses for this world are Dry Bowser (the penultimate boss), a masked Bowser Jr. and his giant-sized father (final bosses). This is the only world with no secret exits or unlockable levels, although it still has the most levels of any world.

There are nine different bosses found in New Super Mario Bros., with Bowser and Bowser Jr. encountered multiple times.With the exception of Bowser, Bowser Jr. and Petey Piranha, all the other bosses in the game made their first appearance. Furthermore, none of them have appeared in any other games except for Dry Bowser.

BossPlace(s) foughtHow to defeat Bowser Jr. (as miniboss)All towers and World 8-Mario needs to jump on him three times. When he has his bandanna on his face, he will hide in his shell when he gets close to Mario, so he needs to jump on the Green Shells he throws and throw them back at him, then jump on him, three times. A ground pound will count as two hits, or Mario can defeat him with 9 fireballs, which do not stun him like jumping on him does.BowserWorld 1-Mario needs to jump on the skull switch to send him falling down beneath the bridge into the lava.MummipokeyWorld 2-Mario needs to jump on this Pokey three times to go to World 3 or ground pound him three times with Mini Mario to go to World 4.CheepskipperWorld 3-Mario needs to jump on him three times when he jumps out of the water, while dodging his Cheep-Cheeps.Mega GoombaWorld 4-Mario should hit the switch in hole in the middle, and ride up the platforms so he can ground pound Mega Goomba three times.Petey PiranhaWorld 5-Mario should run around so that Petey tries to squish Mario. If he moves out of the way in time, Petey should slip and land on his back. Mario should then jump on Petey three times to go to World 6 or ground pound him three times with Mini Mario to get to World 7.Monty TankWorld 6-Mario should crouch in the corner, then jump on the Monty Mole's head when he stops firing Bullet Bills. Each time he is hit, his tank gets higher.LakithunderWorld 7-Mario should jump on Lakithunder three times when he swoops down.Dry BowserWorld 8-Mario needs to jump on the skull switch to send him falling down beneath the bridge.BowserWorld 8-Mario needs to defeat Bowser Jr. to pass him, then jump on the skull switch to send him falling down beneath the bridge into the pit.

Mario Vs. Luigi[edit]

In this two-player mode, Mario and Luigi compete for a number of big stars. Those stars will appear at random in the side-scrolling stages. The end of each of those stages is their beginning (the stages are looped). When Mario or Luigi are hit by enemies, fall down or hit each other, they lose a star, which can then be again collected by any of the brothers. The first brother to reach the previously set amount of stars wins the game. When a brother collects eight coins, a random power up will appear – Mushroom, Fire Flower, Blue Shell, Mini Mushroom, Starman, or Mega Mushroom (which only is given to the losing player). When a brother has a certain amount of victories, he wins the match. The following stages can be played:

Grass[5] - A stage that is much like World 1-1 of the single-player game, a meadow near Peach's Castle. It also based off of World 1-1 from Super Mario Bros. and has many elements of it. This stage is a relatively simple stage with only Goombas and one Koopa Troopa.Bricks[5] - An underground stage much like World 1-2 of the single-player game. It has many walls of blocks and has several holes. The stage is very short. Mario/Luigi should be very careful if they get a Mega Mushroom in this stage, as they can easily crush through the bricks and fall through the floor.Ice[5] - A slippery stage that resembles levels found in World 5. Bullet Bills are hazards in this stage. There is a spin block which can be used to access higher Big Stars as well as coins. There are Blue Koopa Troopas in this level; jumping on it will reduce it to being a Blue Shell which can be used.Pipes[5] - A pipe world that resembles a level in World 7, it contains many Warp Pipes and Piranha Plants.Fortress[5] - The most hazardous level, resembling most castle levels in the game. It contains Bob-ombs and moving walls which can crush Mario and Luigi, among other dangers.

The 1 Player minigames menu.

In addition to the modes above, this game also features a selection of minigames. Most of the minigames featured in New Super Mario Bros. are the same as the ones from Super Mario 64 DS, but some new ones are also present. The games are not divided based on the characters that unlock them by catching rabbits, and instead are divided into several categories. This game also features the option to either play several single player minigames, or play several multiplayer minigames, in which multiple players compete against each other in a series of minigames specially designed for multiple players to earn the highest score.


If the player taps the letters as the credits roll, they will make sound effects heard throughout the game, with each letter of the alphabet making a different sound, except for letters D and E, which share the same sound (however, the letter Q does not appear at all during the credits). Punctuation marks also make sound effects. Tapping the background makes the sound effect of Mario jumping. If the player completes the game using Luigi, Mario's voice clips are substituted with Luigi's ones.

References to other games[edit]

Mario Bros. - The respawn jingle from this game plays in the Mario Vs. Luigi mode when Mario respawns from defeat. World 2-2 and World 8-6 contain Mario Brothers Yuka, platforms that Mario and Luigi can hit from below to knock over enemies walking on top of them, similarly to one of the main gameplay mechanics of Mario Bros.Super Mario Bros. - There are two unlockable skins for the bottom screen that resemble something of this game; one shows a close-up of 8-bit Mario and Luigi sprites, and the other one is a secret unlockable skin and it features Mario, Luigi, and some Goombas in World 1-1. The overworld Multiplayer stage is also based on World 1-1. In the end of World 1-2, there is a hidden path over the ceiling before the final pipe that leads to a secret pipe, which is a direct reference the same secret in the same level of Super Mario Bros.. Bowser and Dry Bowser are defeated the exact same way as in the castles in this game - by hitting the axe/skull switch which makes the bridge he's standing on fall into the lava or a bottomless pit, respectively. The latter also applies to the final battle against Bowser and Bowser Jr. The color scheme of the Mega Mushroom in New Super Mario Bros. is the same as that of the Super Mushroom in this game. If Mario finishes a level with the last two numbers of the time limit being the same, the "level complete" theme from this game plays in place of the normal one. A cover of this game's death theme plays when Mario loses a life. The first four levels' settings of the game are very similar to those of this game: the first level takes place in a grassy field, the second takes place underground, the third takes place up high on trees/giant mushrooms, and the fourth is a tower/castle level with a boss waiting for Mario at the end. The music in the Toad Houses is a cover of this game's ground theme. Also, if the player presses , , , , , , ,while in the pause menu on the map, then Mario can no longer backtrack in levels, like in this game. In the minigame Danger, Bob-omb! Danger!, the background music is an arrangement of the castle theme from this game. The sound effect for when Mario or Luigi slides down the flagpole is reused, albeit reversed. Other sound effects are reused including the coin, stomp, bump, fireball, jump and warp pipe/power down sounds.Super Mario Bros. 3 - One of the hazards of the Castle multiplayer stage is the moving ceiling that will crush players; this seems to be based on the moving ceilings in some of the fortresses in this game. The world themes are similar to the ones in this game. Toad Houses return. When Mario is taking on a castle boss, the music is a cover of the boss theme from this game. The Toad House theme is arranged in the minigame Bob-omb Reverse. The Spade Bonus theme is also arranged in the minigame Wanted!. Bowser Jr. fights like Boom Boom did in this game.Super Mario World - The Item Stock returns from this game. A Monty Mole, which first appears in this game, appears as part of a boss called Monty Tank. Wigglers also appear in the game. Grinders don't appear in New Super Mario Bros., but spiked balls appear in the game, having the same function. Also, this game features Warp Pipes that can shoot the player into the air like Cannons. The jump sound effect is reused when Mario or Luigi jumps.Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island - The sound effects when collecting Red Coins originates from here, including the distinct sound for the last red coin.Super Mario 64 - There are several characters from this game reappearing here, such as Dorrie and Sushi. Some of the Mario Bros.' techniques, such as the Triple Jump, are also borrowed from this game. Also, a few voice clips are reused, like "It's-a me, Mario!", and "Here we go!" The theme used for Invincible Mario/Luigi is the same as the theme for Wing Mario and Vanish Mario in this game.Mario Kart 64 - The artwork for the Blue Shell is edited from the artwork for the various shells from this game.Super Mario Sunshine - Bowser Jr. reappears as the main antagonist in this game. The instruction booklet even says, "Didn't Bowser Jr. once think Peach was his mother?", referencing this game. When Mario enters Petey Piranha's room, (for the first time, from the beginning), who first appears in this game, the cutscene that plays mirrors the beginning of his second battle in Bianco Hills. He is found sleeping peacefully only to be disturbed by something (in this case, Bowser Jr. jumping on him) and, enraged, starts to fly. During the card minigames, the music from Casino Delfino plays, but without the saxophones and whistling. Based on the background, it is very well possible that these games take place in Casino Delfino.Mario Party 4 - The Mini Mushroom and Mega Mushroom return with the same function as in this game.Mario Kart: Double Dash!! - Some character voices come from this game.Mario Party 6 - Mario, Luigi, and Princess Peach’s artwork is reused for this game.Super Mario 64 DS - The characters reappearing from Super Mario 64 look as they do in this game, and many assets were pulled from this game - models and textures, music tracks and sound effects, and several enemies, such as Scuttlebugs, which debut in 2D Mario games here, using behaviour from Super Mario 64 DS. Additionally, the Mega Mushroom grants the same effect as grabbing a Super Mushroom in this game. Most of the minigames in New Super Mario Bros. return or are edited from this game. When the Nintendo DS is closed and opened, Mario will say "It's-a me, Mario!" and "Buh-bye!". Also, New Super Mario Bros. runs on a heavily modified version of this game's engine.[citation needed]

Critical reception[edit]

New Super Mario Bros. received, overall, critical acclaim, with the most praise going to it being an excellent revamp and revival of the 2D platformers, while still being a new and original game in its own right. IGN gave it a 9.5/10, saying the game "marked a brilliant return to Mario's side-scrolling environments, with elements that reintroduced the classic touch".[6] It was also given a high rating by GameSpot, who rated it 9/10. [7]

ReviewsReleaseReviewer, PublicationScoreCommentNintendo DSCraig Harris,IGN9.5/10Admittedly there aren't as many gameplay innovations in New Super Mario Bros. as compared to previous Super Mario releases, but that's mostly due to the fact that much of platforming's innovations are related to 3D designs. But that said, this Nintendo DS release still proves that Nintendo still has some great ideas brewing for its plumber in his classic setting. There's an incredible amount of fresh, fun challenge to uncover in this revival.Nintendo DSTom Bramwell,Eurogamer9/10Fitting, then, that Nintendo saved some of his finest moments for this diminutive game-card - which, along with the emergence of DS and Wii, some have marked as a bookend to a period of dynastic chaos. The balance could yet shift again. But New Super Mario Bros., with its faultless controls, effortless variety and deceptive simplicity, argues that while market ratios can sweep back and forth and erupt and diminish in unexpected ways, the balance of ideas can always be relied upon to settle in one place: in the welcoming arms of a friendly little company from Kyoto called Nintendo.Nintendo DSCorbie Dillard,Nintendo Life9/10Let's face it, 15 years is a long time to wait for a new 2-D Super Mario Bros. game, but the wait was obviously well worth it. Nintendo has managed to take everything great and fun from the previous Super Mario Bros. games, roll it all together, add a fresh coat of paint onto the whole thing and come out with one of the best platformers we've seen released in years, not to mention a game easily worthy of the Super Mario Bros. name. This could be the best Nintendo DS game to date, and one that should have no trouble doing what its' predecessors did, and that's selling a lot of Nintendo game systems.Nintendo DSJeff Gerstmann,GameSpot9/10With its ability to recall the older games without leaning too heavily on its famous name, New Super Mario Bros. is an essential new classic that lives up to the legacy of the series quite well. If you're looking for a quality DS game, look no further.AggregatorsCompilerPlatform / ScoreMetacritic89GameRankings89.07%

New Super Mario Bros. is the best-selling game for the Nintendo DS, having sold 30.80 million copies worldwide.

Super Mario-Kun adaptation[edit]

Mario trying to save Luigi from falling from the cliff before his distraction

New Super Mario Bros. is featured in the Super Mario-Kun manga. Only one volume is based on the game. Though it follows the story in some segments in these volumes from the game, it continues the key plot element differences, as in every volume in the Super Mario-Kun manga series.

Luigi falls when he is defeated by Mario in the Mario vs. Luigi segments. Mario runs to the cliff when he sees his brother about to fall, grabbing him to save him, until he is distracted by a female star.

Pre-release and unused content[edit]

Main article: List of New Super Mario Bros. pre-release and unused content

In some demo versions used in kiosks during 2005, and in the E3 2005 trailer version, Mega Goombas were a generic species, rather than an individual boss. They appeared as difficult enemies, in one of the 2005 demos, as well as being a boss, similar to in the final game. A screenshot featuring of early map icons exists on page twelve of one of the final versions of the US manual. There were originally three item reserve spots rather than one. Spindrift was also supposed to be in the game, but got replaced by the blue spinning platforms in World 1-3 and other levels.[citation needed]


Main article: List of New Super Mario Bros. glitches

In World 2, 3, and 5-Tower, Mario must go to the top of the tower. Then, they fight Bowser Jr., and must stomp on him twice. Then, he will go his usual routine trying to jump on Mario. Mario must time it right so when he jumps to the highest point, they can jump on him. Also, Mario must use the technique where they can jump higher off an enemy. He has to aim towards the ceiling, and, if done correctly, Mario or Luigi should be on top of the roof. The usual animation of Bowser Jr. running away will show and the Mario or Luigi face signal turns halfway because the player cannot see Mario.

In World 5-Tower, Mario should get to the boss, then walk to the edge while Bowser Jr. charges at him. If done correctly, Bowser Jr. will charge off the platform. Then the screen will zoom out to show an empty area. The only way to escape is to fall off the platform. Once Mario loses a life, the screen will shake and teleport them to the map.

When Mario finds a "wild" Mega Mushroom in a level (1-1, 1-2, 4-4, and 7-5) (not in a Toad House) they must let the Mega Mushroom run to any unbreakable Block (empty ? Block, empty brick, etc.). He must jump against the Mega Mushroom and the block in the same frame. When done right, the character will not become Mega. Instead, a Mega Mushroom will be in Mario's Item Storage.[8]

Later Mario platformers use the Super Mario World variant of the pipe sound to indicate damage, while still keeping the original Super Mario Bros. sound effect for pipes.Likewise, the Coin sound in this game is very similar to the Coin sound from the 8-bit Mario games, whereas in later games in the series, the sound effect sounds closer to that of Super Mario World.In the previous Mario games (particularly 8-bit and 16-bit Mario games), when Mario picks up a 100th Coin for a 1-Up, the 1-Up Mushroom sound cancels the Coin sound. Instead, in this game, the Coin and 1-Up Mushroom sound play together whenever obtaining a 100th coin. This feature is also present in future New Super Mario Bros. games.In addition, the "bump" noise when hitting a block/wall, or a shell bouncing off is also the same as the 8-bit Mario games. In later installments, the "bump" noise is given a new one.Bowser's voice effects in New Super Mario Bros. are his computerized roars and growls from the N64 era. In all follow-ups to this game, he uses his modern voice clips as provided by Kenny James.The original European version of New Super Mario Bros. got a PEGI 3+ rating, however, due to content regulations in Europe growing stricter over the years, the European Virtual Console re-release instead got a PEGI 12+ rating because of the gambling in the table minigames. This also applies to Super Mario 64 DS.The shortest possible path that Mario can take is World 1-1, World 1-2, World 1-Tower, World 5-1, World 5-2, World 5-3, World 5-Ghost House, and all of World 8.[11]
