As part of the 25th anniversary celebrations, Nintendo has released a couple of Wii bundles that include some sort of variant of Mario Bros:

25th Anniversary SUPER MARIO BROS is pre-installed, the design is partially rearranged from the original SUPER MARIO BROS for NES

Does anyone know what the difference is?

From the screenshot shown on that page, it appears that the coin blocks have been relabeled with "25". I hope, at least, that this was the only "partially rearranged" issue in the 25th anniversary of a classic.

+1 a friend sent me a dump of the 25th anniversary version. A binary diff against the original SMB showed that the only difference was the coin block tile. – Martin Sep 14 '12 at 0:31
