I’ve always had a special affinity for Super Mario Bros 2 (USA), and I even place it within the top five of my favorite Mario games. In particular, I really appreciated the game’s uniqueness, the ability to play as four different characters each with their own individual attributes, and the atypical storyline that expanded on the Mario universe. Obviously, we all know now that the game we got as SMB2 was a re-skinned version of Japan’s Doki Doki Panic, but as a kid who didn’t know any better, I welcomed the chance to see Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool team up to take on a new threat.
Aside from Birdo, none of the bosses from SMB2 have ever returned to the series in any form (apart from a one-off appearance of Wart in Link’s Awakening). I’m desperately hoping they’ll show up in a future installment. Until then, I’ll create my own opportunity to see them on my bedroom wall with the rest of my video game art!
