Here’s our fancy Japanese version, because we’re show-offs…

Believe it or not, today marks the 30th anniversary of Super Mario Land‘s launch on the trusty Game Boy in Europe.

Developed as a Game Boy launch title, Super Mario Land offered Mario his very first outing in a portable platformer. It was a truly impressive transition from the big screen at the time, benefitting from the wonderful platforming you’d expect from any Mario game and an equally brilliant soundtrack to boot.

It’s a short but sweet title, and while its sequel is usually considered a more enjoyable experience these days, we’d argue it’s worth revisiting just to see how far the series has come. If you were lucky enough to have played this one at the time, we’re sure that booting it up now will reward you with a wonderful wave of nostalgia.


You can actually download a copy of the game on the 3DS eShop if you’re itching to give it a go; it’s available for £3.59, and we shared a review of its release when it first appeared almost a decade ago.


Let us know if you’re a fan of Super Mario Land in the comments below. And if you’re wanting even more Mario, why not see where the game landed in our list of the Best Super Mario Games Of All Time.
