Major Game Anniversaries in October 2018
Super Mario Bros. 2 – 30th Anniversary
The first anyone saw of Super Mario Bros. 2 was as Yume Kojo: Doki Doki Panic when it released in Japan in July 1987. The now famous title is the western version of the Japanese game and it was modified to be less difficult and similar to the previous game.
Super Mario Bros. 2 came to the US on Oct. 9, 1988, and is now considered to be one of Nintendo’s all-time classic games. The side-scrolling 2D gameplay of the Super Mario Bros. games that we’ve all come to love was perfect and it’s been remade multiple times over the last 30 years to be part of collections and celebrations. With New Super Mario Bros. U due to come to Switch soon, maybe now’s a good time to go back to one of Mario’s earliest appearances.
