Daar zijn ze weer! Het laatste deel van de Super Mario Bros 3 playthrough / run / walkthrough / …of zoiets :).

Elger en Martin gaan (net zoals in elke andere aflevering) feilloos door de levels heen, en komen oog in oog te staan met Bowser.

Je hebt er vandaag iets langer op moeten wachten, maar hier is hij dan eindelijk: een nieuwe aflevering van Retro Bros!

Ze zijn nog steeds in wereld 8 van Super Mario Bros 3. Gaat het Elger lukken om dat vervelende stuk te skippen?
