It’s free to download, and seems entirely unchanged from the version that was released to North American and Japanese punters late last year. downloading it gives you a month’s free access, after which be prepared to cough up. I’ve confirmed that it is available on the South African eShop as well.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3.
