Regional differences

Of the following facts, these show what is different in the Japanese version of Super Mario All-Stars:

  1. There is a different crowd chatter, comparing to the two versions.
  2. On the title screen, instead of the lights revealing after pressing Start, the screen will automatically fade out.
  3. Three of the box arts are completely different in the Japanese version. In the U.S. version, the "Lost Levels" box is given English text.
  4. The "Select Game" screens also have a couple different colors.
  5. The Super Mario Bros. Lost Levels title screen has the words "Super Mario Bros. 2 for Super Players" in its logo.
  6. Even Super Mario Bros. 2's title screen is different. You will see words "Super Mario USA", along with three copyright years.

Version differences

Many differences, including a couple of glitch fixes, occurred between the original NES versions of the four Super Mario games and their Super NES counterparts in Super Mario All-Stars.

  1. All four title screens now have background music, and one of the Player Modes will disappear after opening an old file.
  2. Luigi is taller than Mario in every game.

Super Mario Bros. (1 and Lost Levels)

  1. The number of lives is now always a counting number rather than a crown and a symbol from the CHR table.
  2. Players will immediately take turns after completing each level in addition to also losing a life.
  3. Mario can jump above the blocks he just broke with his head.
  4. The bonus rooms and coin heavens use completely different music.
  5. When you face Bowser, the music changes to a more epic theme for any typical boss battle. There is a different epic theme also available when facing the last Bowser.
  6. The Minus World glitch still works, but the pipes will only lead to Worlds 2, 3 and 4. Therefore, the Minus World is partially removed.
  7. A form of small and fiery Mario at the same time is not possible.
  8. Audio cues are given for key points in the maze levels (Worlds 4-4, 7-4 and 8-4) if you chose the correct path or the wrong path.
  9. In each world, a different number of Toads escape from their tied bags. Each number of Toads from the bag would usually match the world number.

  5. The game maxes out at 99 lives, much unlike how in the original NES version, it maxes out at 255.
  6. In the Bonus Chance game, three cherries equals a 3-UP, and now, sevens are included. Get three sevens, and you'll earn a 10-UP. And instead of using letters after numbers according to the CHR table, the SNES version's coin counter now uses just whole numbers.
