Featuring Mr. Dream and Star Soldier will join Nintendo's growing collection of NES favorites on April 10.

Originally released in Japan as Super Mario Bros.® 2, this game has previously made only brief cameo appearances in the Western Hemisphere.

The Lost Levels (first released in the U.S. as part of the Super Mario All-Stars collection on SNES in 1993) is infamous for its difficulty, adding in poison mushrooms and reverse level warps.

The player controls the starship Caesar and must make their way through space stations that have been taken over by powerful supercomputers known as Starbrains.

Now, while it might be merely speculation at this stage, there's no doubt that having Master Chief lock horns with the likes of Super Mario, Donkey Kong and Princess Peach in the popular fighting game would be fun for all involved.
