Game Description: In the year 2636, the Alien War rages on, and it's up to two soldiers, Jimbo and Scully, to stop the invasion. In this US version of the Super NES™ classic, play solo or with a friend and battle through six stages of non-stop, run-and-gun action. Collect power-ups including bombs, flamethrowers, spread shots, lasers and homing guns. Control Jimbo and Scully as they travel through war-torn cities, race on air bikes, ride missiles and ultimately break into the alien base to defeat the boss once and for all. Please note, this title was originally released in Europe as "Super Probotector: Alien Rebels".

Mario Bros.


Nintendo 3DS

(Virtual Console- NES)

Nintendo eShop from 09/01/14 €4.99


Nintendo PR

Game Description: Mario Bros. is a treasure trove of gaming history. The follow-up to the hit Donkey Kong, it was not only the first time our hero was known as Mario, it also introduced his brother Luigi, green pipes, coins and even more now-familiar elements of the Mario series. The gameplay is simple yet challenging: eliminate all the enemies in each level for a big score. However, Mario cannot jump on enemies from above so must hit them from below and finish them off with a kick. Add a second player as Luigi for even more fun!
