Super Mario Bros. 2 originally appeared in Japan as Yume Kojo: Doki Doki Panic, being turned into a Super Mario Bros. game for international audiences. The actual Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, was not released outside of Japan until later. In this installment, people can play as Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Toad, each with their own special traits, as they go to defeat Wart and his minions.
