Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels now out on 3DS eShop, along with a demo of LEGO The Lord of the Rings

3DS fans have some great news to look forward to today, as the real Super Mario Bros. 2 (know as Super Mario Bros. : The Lost Levels outside of Japan) makes its way to the eShop for $5. If you like solid platforming and/or are a masochist, The Lost Levels is perfect for you. The Lost Levels is like a direct continuation of Super Mario Bros., except it is a million times more difficult.

Prepare for pixel perfect jumps, poison mushrooms that will kill you, a barrage of enemies, and warp pipes that take you back levels instead of forward. The Lost Levels was previously only available outside of Japan as part of Super Mario All-Stars for the SNES and as a downloadable game for the Wii, so it’s awesome that such a rare, tough gem is getting more exposure. Fantasy fans also get a free demo of LEGO The Lord of the Rings, which covers the entire trilogy. Legos go good with anything, especially crazy Ringwraiths and deformed creatures with a split personality disorder.

LEGO The Lord of the Rings retails for $40 if you are interested in buying after getting a sweet, delicious taste.
