Super Mario Bros is arguably the most iconic video game ever created. Released in 1985 for the NES, and ported to other platforms with a few delays in between, Super Mario Bros stars Mario as he attempts to save Princess Peach from King Koopa who has kidnapped her and imprisoned her inside his castle. This history of Super Marios Bros will explore its origins, legacy, and how it impacted popular culture, including how it inspired other video game characters.

Super Mario Bros began as an arcade game developed by Shigeru Miyamoto and released in 1983. The popularity of the game inspired Nintendo to begin development of a port for their new home console, but due to hardware limitations this was impossible at first.

Due to the re-release of Donkey Kong (a Nintendo arcade exclusive that was not ported to the NES) on the Famicom in Japan from September 1986, Nintendo decided to re-release the game as well. This time it made history by becoming the first ever video game to display what would soon become a staple item for Mario games: the health meter.

Developed exclusively for this release, it added a much needed twist to the simple arcade formula. It was this version that would eventually make history when Nintendo decided to port it again, just like Donkey Kong, for release on their next console: The Nintendo Famicom. It was renamed in Japan as Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels due to with its many similarities it had with SMB2 (the original Japanese release of the game). The game was given a new title for overseas markets: it was now called Super Mario Bros. 2, and many features were changed.

How did the Super Mario Bros game become so popular

The game became so popular because of its simplicity. It was easy to play and challenging enough to be interesting without being frustrating. The levels were just the right length to keep you playing for a while without feeling like it’s too much effort or it takes up a lot of time.

The controls were simple. The worst thing that happened to you was getting killed by a Goomba or getting stomped on by an enemy- which is not so bad for beginners!

The history of Super Mario Bros has been impacted greatly by its legacy, and the history of this game will always be closely tied with the history of video games.
