Could Super Mario Land 3 have been more successful on the SNES?


As many people know Super Mario Land 3 also known as Wario Land was one of the most popular titles for the Game Boy Advance back in the early 90’s. Ever since, its initial release back in ’94 Super Mario Land 3 had managed to sell over 5.1 million units worldwide on Game Boy and became one of the most successful titles for that game system. Also, Super Mario Land 3 is considered to be legendary since it was the first game where Wario was a playable character and lead to him having his own series afterwards.


Despite, how popular Super Mario Land became for Game Boy around the early to mid 90’s there are some who question whether or not the game could have had as much success if it was released on the SNES during that time period. While Wario Land looked like it had the potential to be successful on the SNES there were way too many games on the SNES such as Star Fox, Super Mario World, Mega Man X, Mario Kart, Yoshi’s Island and many others that could have easily overshadowed the game between the ’91-’95 time period. While Wario Land could have been a success on the SNES it may not have sold as much on the 16-bit console as it did on Game Boy back then.
