Second in the Game Boy's line of Mario games, this one takes the evolutionary steps that Super Mario 3
for the NES took with it's predecessors. New graphics, power-ups, challenges, and a completely original storyline. A bad version of Mario, Wario, takes over Mario's castle and locks him out using 6 golden coins. Mario must search for said coins all over Mario Land to take back his castle and go one-on-one with Wario himself.
- "スーパーマリオランド２・６つの金貨" -- Japanese spelling
- "Mario Land 2: 6 no Kin-ka" -- Literal Japanese title

Fan made color conversion
In 2017 Daniel Davis, Drakon released the first version of "Super Mario Land 2 DX", a hack of the game adding a basic color palette to the game. The modified game works on Game Boy Color emulators as well as the real hardware. Apart from the new palette, the hack claims to have reduced the noticeable slowdowns in the original game.
The final level in the "Mario Zone" is built partly on LEGO bricks.
This game marks the first official appearance of Wario.
