Super Mario Bros. 2, how much have U.S. Wii owners reported playing? Nintendo Channel report.

"Super Mario Bros. 2 (SMB2) was originally released in the U.S. for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) in 1988. Nintendo re-released SMB2 for the Wii's Virtual Console Service on July 2, 2007, and it is available to download for 500 Wii Points, which is $5. The game was just released for the Wii U's Virtual Console service this week, on Thursday. You can purchase it through the Wii U's eShop now for only $4.99, or you can currently get it 50% off if you buy Super Mario World at the same time.

If you own a Wii or Wii U, how many hours of game-play can you expect from Super Mario Bros. 2? How many U.S. Wii owners have game-play data reported for the game, since it released back in 2007? Brew yourself a nice, full, pot of coffee this fine day, and let's take a look at the official U.S. Nintendo Channel data for Super Mario Bros. 2!", writes CoffeeWithGames.

Zero, I never care for this one. I like the first one and Super Mario Bros. 3 I would spend hours playing on my NES.

I bought SMB2 and SMW on Wii U since they had 50% off SMB2 if you bought SMW. I only played SMB2 for a few minutes... it has always been my least favorite of the NES-SNES Mario Bros games, but I have spent a few hours with SMW. SMW is still an amazing game, and holds up so well after 20+ years. SMB2 isn't bad, it's just such a departure from the other 2D Mario platformers.

thats why its the odd cousin so to speak... at its foundation.. its literally is another game all together..the real super mario 2 was just a harder version of the original..

I'm still wondering why is it that SMB2 is so different from SMB1 and SMB3. Is it another team that worked on it or is it something else? As a kid I didn't care about it but now I'm kinda interested in knowing what is the reason for SMB2 being so different. Anyone?

but in short smb2 was a game called doki doki panic...

nintendo didnt want to release the real smb2 because they thought it was to hard.. so they took doki doki and reskinned the charatcers...
