The new year is kicking off in style with news that the NES classic Super Mario Bros. 3 is coming to the 3DS store January 1. That is, it's coming to the Japanese store that day.

The game will cost a cool 500 yen, which is about $5.80. That's a small price to pay for what's one of the best Mario games around. Dan is convinced that Super Mario World is better, but every sane person knows that Super Mario Bros. 3 is the (slightly) better game.

There's no word yet on whether the game will be available in the North American 3DS store. We've reached out to Nintendo, and we'll update this story if we hear anything.
