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.

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

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

Weren't there some level cards that were exclusive to places you bought them (like wasn't there a level card you could only get if you bought the game at Walmart here in the US)?
Kinopio is the ultimate video game character! Who else can drive a kart, host parties, play tennis, give good advice and items, and is almost always happy??

I don't recall any exclusive cards for SMA4:SMB3, but I went a little crazy with e-reader cards back then and believe I have all North American cards ever release including the complete Animal Crossing set.
