I was gunning for 10,000 posts but it's looking increasingly less feasible.

12 level cards came out in the US with 26 more that only came out in Japan.

That's interesting! How many e-reader levels exist in total?

Hoohoo, just what I needed

The Game Boy Advance e-Reader "Level Card" courses will be included in the Japanese release of Super Mario Advance 4 on the Wii U Virtual Console, according to Nintendo's website. On the original Game Boy Advance version of Super Mario Advance 4, these courses were only accessible by swiping the Level Cards through the e-Reader accessory.

It is currently unknown if the American release will also have the extra courses.

Super Mario Advance 4 on Wii U Virtual Console is set to launch December 29 in Japan.

Bowser's shell is smooth in the concept art, but has a pattern on it in the game. How would esrly 3D graphics explain this? How does early 3D graphics explain sunglasses on a fish?

I do think there's a certain charm to the crappy early 3D graphics. It's hard to tell sometimes how much of the creeping sameyness is due to better graphic hardware -- they have enough polygons now that they don't have to decide which features of the characters to represent and which ones to leave out or make less detailed, which kind of had the effect of different art styles even if they weren't intentionally doing different art styles.

A trend towards graphical sameyness is also noticable when comparing Super Mario 64 N64 to Super Mario 64 DS. I'm posting a comparison of Bowser's appearance and the Boos and Boss Basses were changed to their usual looks in the DS version.

Note that concept art of Bowser from that era makes him resemble something akin to the DS version with darker skin, so that's less graphical sameyness and more that the N64 models could be a bit crude.
