Many players were really convinced that the Super Adventure Box that ArenaNet talked about would be nothing more than an April Fool’s joke. Well, as it turns out, even if it was meant to be a “joke,” it has actually become something that was put into the game!
Players who log into the game and head to Rata Sum will be able to take part in a brand new jumping puzzle mini-game world, offering lots of great platforming fun that is reminiscent of games of old. In fact, they’ve even released a trailer for the experience! Sure, it may not be from the 1980s, but it does capture the look and feel of the early-3D titles that began to appear on the Nintendo 64, PlayStation, Sega Saturn, and others – and it’s a lot of fun!
Since 1983 marks thirty years since the release of the original Mario Bros. arcade game, as well as the Japanese Famicom (doesn’t that make you feel old?), it seems apt.
So, if you own the game, hop on over to the Asura capital and check it out!
