Nintendo Invites Fans to Celebrate 25 Years of Super Mario Bros. Fun

Posted on September 13, 2010 by (@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News

Twenty-five years ago today, Nintendo’s original Super Mario Bros.™ video game made its debut in Japan and changed the world of video games forever. Since then, Mario™ has become one of the most renowned and beloved video game characters around the globe.

Mario is all but synonymous with Nintendo. It’s difficult to think of one without thinking of the other. Super Mario Bros. contains a magical blend of characters, graphics, challenges, music and action that still captivates players today. The original game sold 40.24 million units worldwide, and remains one of the best-known, best-loved video games in the world. It popularized the side-scrolling format and established elements of the Mushroom Kingdom that are still used in today’s Mario games. Super Mario Bros. frequently appears on lists of the best games of all time.

“Stimulated by advancements in technologies, we have always enjoyed developing the Super Mario Bros. series,” said Nintendo designer and Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto. “The Super Mario Bros. series has always taken advantage of the latest technologies and is the fruit of the creativity of a number of my hard-working friends working as a team.”

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Super Mario Bros., fans can visit to see a special video that shows game-play footage from Super Mario Bros. all the way through Super Mario Galaxy™2. For more information about Super Mario Bros. 25th Anniversary, please visit

    Ironic how they left out Super Mario Bros. 2 Japan out of that little movie. And what’s this? No announcement of a U.S. release for Super Mario Collection Wii? Nintendo, I’ll call you and nag you to release this game in America every single day of my life if I have to.

      Okay the video is for the Japanese. And as allot of people know Super Mario Bros 2 for them was later release to America as the lost levels and OUR Mario 2 was later released to Japan as Super Mario USA.

        I think you misunderstood my post. I already watched the video at And I was saying how they left Super Mario Bros. 2 (The Lost Levels as it’s known in America) out of the American video, despite it still being present in the Japanese video at the Japanese Mario25th website. That’s what I was talking about. Personally I think it’s silly they left it out, it’s almost as if Nintendo still treats Japanese-only games as “secret knowledge”, despite that many people are already aware that the original SMB2 wasn’t released in America on the NES, and the “SMB2” we got was a hack of Doki Doki Panic.
