Everyone at this point already knows that Super Mario Bros. 2 was not originally in fact a Mario game at all, and was instead in Japan called Doki Doki Panic with different characters. Everyone at this point also already knows that it doesn’t matter, because Mario 2 is fun as hell. Mario 2 features numerous things not found in previous or subsequent Mario games. You don’t jump on enemies, you pick up and throw them, you also don’t fight King Koopa, you fight Wart the evil toad. Mario 2 fits into the same category for me as Yoshi’s Island, it’s a breath of fresh air to the franchise, but I wouldn’t want to keep my Mario like this.
