Super Mario Bros. 2 (Japan)

Known as The Lost Levels in the west, Super Mario Bros. 2 was released for the Famicom Disk System and ran on the same engine as the first game. This game contained slightly better graphics, and some new gameplay mechanics. However, the game was criticized by Nintendo of America for its extreme difficulty, so the game was shelved. However, when the SNES came out and Super Mario All-Stars (SNES) was released, the game was included, titled Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels. The SNES version featured updated graphics and sound.

Super Mario Bros. 2 (USA)

Super Mario Bros. 2 originally began life as Yume Kojou: Dokidoki Panic for the Famicom Disk System. Upon Nintendo of America declaring the aforementioned Super Mario Bros. 2 to be too hard, Nintendo decided to rebrand Dokidoki Panic as the second installment in the series. Because of its different gameplay, it is often considered the "black sheep" of the series. The game would add several things to the Mario series such as the Shy Guys and Birdo.

The original game took advantage of the Disk System's RP2C33 expansion audio for better sound.
