Super Mario Bros. 2 (スーパーマリオUSA, Super Mario USA) is a platforming video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo Entertainment System video game console. It is a modified version of the game Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic for Western audiences due to Nintendo of America considering Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels too difficult and too similar to its predecessor to release outside of Japan.

This game appears as a Masterpiece in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. It can be played for 90 seconds and starts at the first level with Peach. It must be unlocked by winning five brawls with Peach.

In the Super Smash Bros. series[edit]
