    they didn't steal it they thought the original super mario bros 2 would be too difficult for American market so they localized doki doki panic with mario bros characters ,and now you had SMB 2 as we know it.

    I was thinking that a few weeks ago when i first saw that...They probably just bought the rights.

    I don't think they would risk their reputation, and when they realised that the 2nd mario was just exactly like the first one they bought the rights and the idea and made it their game...

    You seriously don't know about Doki Doki Panic?

    Ok, well it was seperate from the Mario series originally. Super Mario Bros 2 for the Japanese was later given to us in the form of Lost Levels (seen on the SNES), I heard that it was because Japan considered the US and UK as "not as hardcore" (difficulty of game-wise - remember, this was back in the days of the NES - around 1988/9). Basically it was a straight forward sprite swap.

    Bingo (to you too Squall7).

    Not stolen, 'borrowed' is more an appropriate term. SMB2 was released in Japan as Super Mario Brothers USA.
