Is there any difference between the two? This just seems really fun to play on the classic controller.
Should I get this on VC or should I hunt down the GBA version?
The GBA Version is the best version, it has a level tracking system so you know what levels you have 100%, it allows you to play as Luigi, it lets you save anywhere.
But the biggest difference is that when you get hit while in cape/fire form you will go back down to big Mario.
