Mario World 2

So you think you may know Super Mario Bros 2. Its that game that let you choose between Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Toad right? It seemed a little off from the first one but it was still fun right? Well the Super Mario Bros 2 we all know and love in America is actually not Super Mario Bros 2 at all...

The real sequel was only released in Japan. It was actually a remake of the original Super Mario Bros, but the levels were remade to make the game much much harder, so hard in fact that Nintendo was afraid it wouldn't sell well in America. Instead, they took another popular Japanese game, Dream Factory: Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic and substituted its characters with the Mario characters, along with a few added items such as POW blocks, bomb fuses, cherries, and vegetables, and other features like mushrooms instead of hearts, and shrinking characters when life was down to 1. Despite the game not really being truly Mario, it sold very well, and holds the record for 3rd highest selling game on the NES, falling short only to the other two Mario games.

The original Super Mario Bros 2 was not lost forever, however. Americans finally got their hands on it as the "Lost Chapters" on the Super NES game Super Mario All-Stars.
