Hidden levels from Super Mario Advance 4 re-created in Super Mario Maker


Super Mario Bros. 3 has had several releases, but with the Gameboy Advance release, Nintendo included 30 secret stages for the game. The kicker here was you had to own the very rare e-Reader accessory for the Gameboy Advance, along with the special set of cards that feature each level.

Understandably, some players never experienced these levels because they didn’t own the appropriate attachments or couldn’t find the cards. Worry not, however, as intrepid Mario fans Baddboy78 and theycallmeshaky have re-created most of the 30 levels, so you can experience them anew in Super Mario Maker. Some of the levels feature mechanics that haven’t been implemented into Super Mario Maker, yet.


Here’s the short list of all the levels, courtesy of NintendoLife.

There’s no telling how long these levels will stay up, since technically they’re a recreation of intellectual property created by Nintendo. If you want to check out these levels, it’s best to do it now while they’re fresh, instead of waiting to see if Nintendo takes them down.

If you do try any of them, be sure to come back and let us know how you enjoyed them in the comments!
