    I'm actually a fan of the American release, I have fond memories--but I'd like to play the original Japanese SMB2 as well.

    http://www.sydlexia.com/smb2j.htm

    Visit the page for screenshots and descriptions. And if you're offended by bad language (this guy takes his Mario very seriously), see the SMB: The Lost Levels from SMB All Stars on Wikipedia instead.

    I've never played it (didn't have an SNES and don't live in Japan), but I'd like to. It looks like the version in SMB All Stars was dolled up rather nicely, and it comes as a compilation, so I'd be happy if that went up on the auction block as well.

    I wouldn't be entirely surprised if it came out in the West even though it didn't originally. Hudson have already done the same for one or two TG-16 games.

    The article mentions that you can download the game file and play it on an emulator. I've never used an emulator before. What are some good ones, where do you get them, and how do they work?

    Edit: nevermind

    I found a site here that has some emulators and I got the original SMB2 to play on it. It works quite well. Only drawback is playing it on a keyboard.

    Thats why for about $15 dollars, I bought an adapter that lets you plug in either a Gamecube, PS/PSII, or XBOX controller......works like a charm.....(I like PSII the best for most games).

    However, I will pwn any of you at Madden 07 online using my keyboard, which most people say is a ridiculous feat.

    The real Super Mario Bros 2 was released for Super Nintendo. It was included in Mario All-Stars.

    I'd like to play it, but it certainly isn't a priority for me. I think it's basically the original Mario Bros. with amped up difficulty and a few new levels.

    As you can see in the original post, that's one of the games I'd be happy for them to release--however, purists might not be happy with it. The gfx aren't the original, and I've read that Nintendo spiced it with extra powerups to make it easier.

    I see Nintendo releasing Super Mario All Stars (SNES) on the Virtual Console.... some time after they release Super Mario Bros. 3 (NES) on the Virtual Console.

    What would be the point in that, just release lost levels seperatly, if they release all-stars then people who want it who haven't bought any marios for NES yet pay only 800 points total where as people who have already got mario and mario 2 and mario 3 by that point will have used up 1500 points.

    I'd love to see Mario Brothers 2 (The Lost Levels to us in America) released on the VC. I've got it on SNES, god damn it's hard! Me and my grandpa spent like 2 years on that game before we finally beat it.

    My point was it's not unlikely to happen. For example, do you remember Metroid: Zero Mission for Game Boy Advance? Do you know that if you beat it, it unlocks the original Metroid for NES? Do you also know that Nintenod later released the original NES Metroid for Game Boy Advance not long after?

    Besides that, look at Street Fighter II: the World Warrior and Street Fighter II: Turbo. Who is going to download the World Warrior now that you can download Turbo. Likewise, who will download Turbo when Super Street Fighter II will be available?

    At first I thought this was a thread urging Nintendo to release a North American Doki Doki Panic...now that would be interesting. Lost levels was kinda weak. I love SMB 1, but don't beat it to death.

    Other than changing the characters, did they change much to make NA SMB2?

    Not much. There's a few alterations to the graphics and sound, one of the bosses is different, and you couldn't run. But it did allow you to save.
