The tragedy of the Virtual Boy may have traumatized Nintendo for a time but now it seems to be giving virtual reality another shot, just from a different angle.

Nintendo Switch Online will include the real Super Mario Bros. 2

Even back in the days of old, not all games were treated equally. Some never made it to certain markets for one reason or another, usually because of content or profitability.

New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe review: The toad princess cometh

New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe review: The toad princess cometh

Of all of the Wii U games Nintendo has been porting over to the Switch, New Super Mario Bros. U is arguably the biggest. With Breath of the Wild launching so late in the Wii U’s lifecycle, I think it’s fair to consider New Super Mario Bros.

This port is also another chance for Nintendo to flex its platformer prowess and show us once more why Mario is the reigning king of video games.
