They’re TURTLES not DUCKS! They have SHELLS for Pete’s sake! Log in to reply bbelt March 4, 2010, 2:47 pm I never knew there was a different minus world in the Japanese version. It looks like we got ripped off in the states. The Japanese one has actual playable levels, 3 of them. And once you finish all 3, it takes you back to the title screen. If Wikipedia is to be believed. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Mario_Bros.#The_Minus_World Log in to reply Used Cisco March 4, 2010, 4:36 pm I’ve gotten into the minus world on a US version of SMB. It’s not 3 levels. It’s one. Its a water level and you can’t get out. I have no idea about a Japanese version. My question about Mario is this, and maybe some can help me? Why/when did Marios outfit change from the red/orange and brown of SMB to the Red and Blue with White gloves we have today? As I child I played SMB and he was red and brown, but all the cartoons, even at that time I think had him in red and blue with white gloves. Log in to reply bbelt March 4, 2010, 5:17 pm The U.S. version of SMB 2 had Mario in blue overalls with a red shirt. The box art had the colors reversed and put white gloves on him. That is the earliest reference I could find to the cartoonish Mario you mentioned. Log in to reply Used Cisco March 4, 2010, 5:52 pm Interesting, thanks for that !
