Today in History: April 28th 1989 – Super Mario Bros 2 Hits the Nintendo Entertainment System

Triverse writes, "Nintendo was still new to the sequel rituals when they released Super Mario Bros 2 on the NES, and boy did they go away from the norm for what a sequel was supposed to be. Being almost a complete departure from the original NES title, in Japan the title used for the US SMB2 was a completely different title, what was there in the North American version barely said this was a Mario title. Barely." (Retro, Super Mario Bros. 2, Wii)
