Game Profile - Super Mario Bros. on Nintendo NES

Super Mario Bros. is a platformer developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo Entertainment System home console. Released as a successor to the 1983 game Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. was released in Japan and North America in 1985, and in Europe and Australia two years later. In Super Mario Bros., the player controls Mario and his brother, Luigi, as they travel through the Mushroom Kingdom in order to rescue Princess Toadstool from the antagonist, Bowser.

Super Mario Bros. has received critical acclaim since its initial release, with many crediting it alongside the NES as one of the key factors in reviving the video game industry after it had experienced a market crash in 1983. The game's mid-1980s release served to further popularize the side-scrolling subgenre of the already popular platformer genre of the early 1980s. The game was the best-selling game of all time for a single platform for over three decades until it was surpassed in the late 2000s by Nintendo's Wii Sports, selling over 40 million units and becoming one of the defining titles of the NES. The commercial success of Super Mario Bros. went on to spawn a successful video game series, producing several sequels and spin-off games as well as feature film and television adaptations.
