#CIBSunday Super Mario Bros. 2

A bit of a retro gem here… I have no idea how long I have had this for, it lives under my bed, only to come out once every few years. It’s almost in perfect condition and one of my best examples of a collectible retro game…

We all know that this was a weird one when released back on the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1989. Originally starting out as something completely different to a Mario game, it was given a ‘reskin’ for the USA market due to the fact the real Mario 2 was too difficult. After being a relative success in the states, it was then released back in Japan too.

The fact it was set in a Dallas esque dream

Plot wise, it wasn’t really very Mario. The fact it was set in a Dallas esque dream enabled Nintendo a bit of freedom to ad some weirdness, and also enabled them to completely forget this game when releasing the excellent Super Mario Bros. 3.

Of course, there have been stranger games released, but this is one of those – ‘did you ever play’ titles. What games have you got that evoke that same question?
