From the instruction booklet, "One night, Mario had a strange dream. He found himself climbing a long staircase leading up to a mysterious door. Opening the door, Mario's eyes fell upon an incredible world unlike anything he'd ever seen. A quiet voice spoke to Mario, saying 'Welcome to Subcon, the land of dreams. Our once-beautiful world now suffers at the hands of the evil Wart. Please help us! Only you can free us from his tyranny. Oh, and remember one thing: Wart hates vegetables.' The next day, while heading out to a picnic with Luigi, Princess Peach, and Toad, Mario told the tale of his strange dream. Hearing this was quite a shock to his friends, who had all had the very same dream the night before. Upon arriving at their picnic spot, the group noticed a small cave. Inside was a long staircase that led up to a door. At the top, the four friends opened the door and stood shocked by what they saw. It was Subcon - the world of their dreams!"


Super Mario Bros. 2 is the 3rd best-selling game on the Nintendo Entertainment System, selling over 10,000,000 copies worldwide.


All of the music that plays was composed by Koji Kondo.

Extra Information

The game is made as a clone of Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic because Nintendo claimed the Japanese Super Mario Bros. 2 was "too hard" for Americans.
