Lesson time. If we’re gonna play Mario for real then we gotta know the man’s moves. The basics are simple B runs, A jumps, and the D-Pad moves you. Got that? Good. Those buttons are what makes this Mario.
|Busting blocks works like it always did including the bop-under technique. You can now bounce off of enemies to get a huge boost into the air. Kicking shells works the same too. You shouldn’t have any trouble with these.|
|Oh, and you can pick up a shell for the first time. Just hold B and try it. You’ll wonder how you ever got along without it.|
Much thanks to Nintendo for producing such an excellent manual for SMB3. I carried mine with me almost everywhere as a kid. The illustrated section of the bad guys is only topped by the Metroid manual in coolness.
