Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels

This guide was imported from StrategyWiki, and the images are yet to be added.

Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels is a sequel to the original Super Mario Bros., and it was originally released for the Famicom Disk System on June 3, 1986, exclusively in Japan, and was titled Super Mario Bros. 2. The game is very similar to its predecessor, both graphically and in terms of gameplay (the controls are essentially identical.) Unlike Super Mario Bros., it does not have a two-player mode (the player must choose to play as either Mario or Luigi). It contains one new enemy, backward Warp Zones, wind, and Poison Mushrooms. It is also the first game in which Luigi has a higher jump than Mario.

Game cover

Because of its high difficulty and similarity to the original Super Mario Bros., the original game was not released for the Nintendo Entertainment System in America. For this reason, Nintendo released a different game, also titled Super Mario Bros. 2, outside Japan, and would come to be officially titled Super Mario USA in Japan. It was not until 1993 until the game released outside of Japan, for the Super Nintendo compilation title, Super Mario All-Stars, which is where it earned its overseas title, Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels. In Super Mario Bros. Deluxe, the game was featured as an unlockable mode that could be accessed by beating Luigi's high score, and was referred to as Super Mario Bros. for Super Players. However, it could only make use of one save file. The original Famicom Disk System version was re-released for the Game Boy Advance, exclusively in Japan, as part of the Famicom Mini series. This version was first made available overseas when it was released for the Wii's Virtual Console in 2007 and later for both the Nintendo 3DS's and Wii U's Virtual Console services as well.
