Should I get this on VC or should I hunt down the GBA version?

Is there any difference between the two? This just seems really fun to play on the classic controller.

My sister had this game on her GBA.
I would just get the one on VC.

It's great on VC, really takes me back to when I was 10 and playing this all night

LOL believe it or not, when I still had an SNES, I never had this game! I only played it at my cousin's house once in awhile. I guess if there is no difference I'll just grab it on the VC.

I guess if you don't have a SNES, go VC.

GBA version.

It has more stuff AND portable!

I know how to solve this, get both!

SNES/VC has better resolution/graphics and the GBA version has a few extra features, they both play great and everything though, so there isn't much in it.

I'd say GBA, as you then have a portable version rather than one tied to a console you may not have hooked up forever. It's a lot easier to go back and play 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.
