Has carefully researched and played on this unit, during the strange Christmas shopping 2020, in Stockholm city.
For once, I think Nintendo has made a reasonably sober decision when it comes to pricing ("500 bucks evenly" would have been optimal, though). , for the first time since 1983! .- But after testing, the purchase fell anyway.Why?. Yes:
Three games would, according to information, be included in the product concept. I took it for granted that it was about "Super Mario bros., - first, second and third". But apart from the 1st, it was not at all what was offered.
¤ "2" here, is in fact THE JAPANESE VERSION of "Super Mario bros. 2", with Japanese language version replaced with English! .- It was never released in the west in the 80's, simply because it adds a lot a bit game-wise, compared to the 1st, except for a greatly increased level of difficulty (but the game HAS later been available to us in English! .Under the name "" Super Mario bros: -The lost levels "" Nintendo has offered the game through various "specials" "to other, more modern consoles, from 1993 onwards. And thus it is not" new ", even for us!).
"The Real" S.M.B. 2 then ?. Forget it !. It is simply not included here.
¤ Speaking of "Super Mario bros. 3"; It's not included here either. -Ok, no one has said that either. It was just my simple thought that it would be VERY LOGIC to enter "3rd", after "1st" and "2nd" "!.
So what do we get instead then ?. Well, a very, very primitive / simple, black and white, unimproved original LCD game, from the early 80's "Game & Watch" series. - The "main character" in this is a supposed personification of "Mario" himself ... (in terms of appearance, it could just as easily have claimed to "resemble" my alcoholic uncle Julle in Krokom!).
Nintendo holds all kinds of patent rights to the "Mario" / "Super Mario" series. They do not have to pay a penny to any third-party players when they have to release something in the style of the above. Njaee, this is really no High tech by 2020 standards. And the design? ..- It is already finished. Since about 1981 !.
-So, what is the reason for Nintendo to keep on and skimp on "Super Mario" games from the late 80's ?? ... I honestly have no theory to come up with ...- It is incomprehensible !.
It is as I usually say; Nintendo must have the electronics industry's most loyal customer base! ..
