Two classics, one pak! Super Mario Bros. 2 and Mario Bros., together in one Game Pak -- and on Game Boy Advance, they're better than ever! There's all of the running, jumping, jumping, and veggie flinging that made NES Super Mario Bros. 2 a smash hit, plus new enemies and bigger items. And in the updated arcade classic Mario Bros., you can work together or have a brawl bumping off baddies and collecting coins. It all adds up to advanced Mario mayhem!
