The Japanese thought the game would be too hard for us English speaking folk so they designed a new game? I actually like the NA/Europe Super Mario Bros 2 better then the Japanese because the Japanese one just looks like the first game with harder levels. But the story is kinda out there. I mean it's not your typical rescue the princess from Bowser game. It starts off with your character falling (down the rabbit hole) and entering some world that isn't full of koopas but magic carpets and dinosaurs? Play this game while listening to Dark Side of the Moon and you'll understand that the Mario games is just one big drug trip. I know this has been an on-going joke but really, Mario 2 was the only one to shove it in our face. Okay, now I'm rambling. TL;DR is there a way I can play Super Mario Bros 2 the Japanese version?
