Super Mario Bros. 2 (NES, Wii U VC) Retro Review | SuperPhillip Central

"If you are a gamer, especially a classic gamer, you probably know the tale of the American version of Super Mario Bros. 2. If not, then no worries-- let me drop some knowledge on your pretty little head. The original Super Mario Bros. 2 released in Japan, and it looked just like its predecessor, albeit with new levels and a high difficulty. That difficult was deemed so high by Nintendo of America, that they didn't feel American NES owners could stand the challenge. Thus, Nintendo reworked a Japanese game known as Doki Doki Panic and instead of the new characters introduced in that game, they were replaced by Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool, and Toad. Therefore America's version of Super Mario Bros. 2 is quite different from the Japanese version. The Japanese version would later be released in America as Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels. Phew! That took some writing to get that story across!

Regardless, Super Mario Bros. 2 recently released on Nintendo's digital drip-feeding service called the Wii U Virtual Console. For a game that originally released in 1988 (and then later in Japan as Super Mario USA), Super Mario Bros. 2 is still a delightful platforming adventure."

not trolling just saying since this cool site has a bunch of competition "war" type articles between gaming consoLes and gaming companies.

it seems its only microsoft and sony going at nintendo though hoh hoh hohh

this game here for example is proof of the dangers of fanboyism, not even an 8.5 score after what it did?
