Trivia

1001 Video Games

The NES version of Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

Release history

Because the game is much harder than the original Super Mario Bros., Nintendo decided not to release this title in the US and Europe. Instead they changed the graphics of Yume Kōjō: Dokidoki Panic and released it as Super Mario Bros. 2 in the west.

Super Mario All-Stars version

The NES version was originally only released in Japan. However, this game was released in the US as part of Super Mario All-Stars.
