Alternate versions

In 1986, there was an alternate version available for the arcade. It is called "Vs. Super Mario Bros." It has stages switched in a different order and some from the Japanese Super Mario Bros. 2. Another was "All Night Nippon Super Mario Bros." This game also had graphics from the Japanese SMB2, except the Goombas, Toad and Piranha Plants were completely different.

Combination cartridges

Throughout the years, the 1988 re-release with Duck Hunt in a 2-in-1 cartridge was the most common seen on NES bundles. However, the Zapper Light Gun is required for Duck Hunt. There was also a 3-in-1 cartridge with both games and another called World Class Track Meet from 1990. That game required the NES Power Pad.
