Relive the classics with Mario Maker or add giant Bowser, you know, whatever

Mario Maker will put the tools to create new and unique Super Mario Bros. levels in players hands on September 11. But if you're feeling a bit intimidated at the thought of drawing up your own World 1-1 (or maybe you're up to the challenge, but need some inspiration first), you can also play through the original versions of Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World. Or you can add little tweaks, like new warp pipes, enemies, or put a shell on Mario's head.

Hey, it beats having to keep a spare CRT television, NES and SNES on hand, and the cartridge versions certainly aren't going to let you add in a wall of fire or giant wheels of Boos.
