The Mario Project: an update

Bowser and SonicA while back I asked for help in rounding up some classic Mario and Zelda related carts for the Game Boy and Game Boy Advance for my own game boy, who’s turning five in less than a month. I want to thank everyone who responded and had stuff on the list that they were willing to part with – the list really got whittled down significantly, much faster than I was expecting, and with much less expenditure on my part than expected.

Must Haves – he adores these.
Legend Of Zelda (GBA – NES Classics version) (and boxed too! WOW!)
Mario vs. Donkey Kong (GBA)
Super Mario Advance 1: Super Mario Bros. 2 (GBA)
Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario World (GBA)
Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi’s Island (GBA)
Super Mario Land (GB)
Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins (GB)
Super Mario Land 3: Wario Land

These Would Be Dandy
Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga (GBA)
Mario Kart: Super Circuit (GBA)
Wario Land 2
Wario Land 3
Wario Land 4 (GBA)

These Would Be OK Too
Dr. Mario (NES Classics or Puzzle League version – GBA)
The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening DX (GBC)
Mario Party Advance (GBA)
Mario Pinball Land (GBA)
WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgames! (GBA)
Yoshi (GB)
Yoshi’s Cookie (GB)

He’s gonna be so happy he’s gonna freakin’ explode. That being said, he did throw me a curveball, one which was more funny than upsetting. He is going to dig these carts (which will probably be divvied up between his September birthday and Christmas), but he’s recently fallen in love with…

…Sonic the Hedgehog. 😆

That’s okay, little guy. Daddy’s got time to track down Sonic Advance 1 and 2 for you (those’ll be Christmas though – I have convention expenses I have got to save up for). Can’t fault him for taste though – wonder where he gets that?
