1001 Video GamesThe 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 historyBecause 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 versionThe NES version was originally only released in Japan. However, this game was released in the US as part of Super Mario All-Stars.
