Super Mario Bros. is one of the most influential games ever released in the history of video games. It was first published on the Famicom in Japan, and on the Nintendo Entertainment System around the world. It was the number one selling Famicom game released in 1985, selling approximately 6,810,000 copies in its production cycle, over four times as many as the next best selling game, Soccer. It was largely credited with reviving the depressed video game market in the United States, which had plummeted around 1983.

Super Mario Bros. is the first installment of the Super Mario series. Although it was not the first side-scrolling platform game (Namco's Pac-Land preceded Super Mario Bros. by one year), it was by far the most popular, and arguably influenced the genre's success for many following years to come.
