Nintendo's releasing rare games
like the Japan-exclusive Super Mario Bros. 2
and Mario's Super Picross
in PAL regions, as part of a special "Hanabi Festival." Each week in September, awesome Japanese games will be released in themed groupings.
This week's Mario
games comprise Mario Week. Next week is Ninja Week, featuring the U.S. version of Ninja Gaiden
and Ninja Jajamaru-kun.
The following week, starting September 28, is Sci-Fi Week, with Gradius III
and Sin and Punishment.
This is currently PAL-only, but now that these previously unreleased games are on their way to Europe and Australia, the U.S. could be close behind.
