Super Mario Bros. 2, called Super Mario USA in Japan, is a video game released for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1988. It is the second installment of the Super Mario Bros. series in North America, Europe, and Australia. It succeeded from Super Mario Bros. (1985) and is the predecessor to Super Mario Bros. 3 (1988/1989)

The game is a reskin of an unrelated video game called Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic, starring an Arabian family. The reason for its reskin is because Nintendo of America thought that Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels was too similar to the first Super Mario Bros. and they thought that the game would be too challenging for casual players outside of Japan.

Super Mario Bros. 2 marked the first appearance of Bob-ombs, Birdo, Pokeys, Shy Guys, and Snifits, all of which became recurring enemies throughout many Mario titles.







  • This game marks the first time where The Princess and Toad are playable characters.
  • Birdo's and Ostro's names are reversed in the ending credits and the game manual. Clawgrip's name is also misspelled in the ending credits as Clawglip. This typo is an example of Engrish, a English variation in which the language itself is misspelled and/or mispronounced by countries in Asia.
