Are the Super Mario Brothers Games Available Online?

Nintendo makes some of the "Super Mario Bros." games available for purchase online through the Nintendo eShop, such as "Super Mario Bros. 2" and "Super Mario World." However, players must download the games to a Nintendo device such as the Wii U or Nintendo 3DS.

Nintendo began making some of the older "Super Mario Bros." games available for download with the Virtual Console service on the original Wii, and has continued that service with the Wii U and 3DS.

Nintendo's policy for its first-party franchises such as "Super Mario Bros." has mostly been to keep them exclusive to Nintendo's own systems throughout company history, so any games that appear online outside of Nintendo's official channels are likely there illegally.
