Trivia

Repackaged a year later in the U.S. as Super Mario Bros. 2, replacing all the playable main characters with Mario, Luigi, Peach and Toad. Next to that, the game had minor adjustments to make the game appear like a Super Mario game while leaving most of the game's assets (worlds, enemies and items) unchanged. The reason for this was that the actual Super Mario Bros. 2 was considered too similar to the first game. The actual sequel was released years later outside Japan as "Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels". See more »

Alternate Versions

The four main characters were replaced with Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool, for the North American version of Super Mario Bros. 2. See more »

Japanese Version of America's SMB2
1 September 1999 | by trezinSee all my reviews

This game is what started the American version of Super Mario Brothers 2. This original version involves a similar story line as the American version, but it has four characters who seem to be from India .. and a couple of kids get pulled into a book so these four people try and help them. Very strange game.
