Super Mario Bros. 2 is a video game developed and published by Nintendo for the NES in 1988. It is a modified version of the Japan-exclusive game Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic originally released for the Famicom in 1987. The game's composer is Koji Kondo. The game was remade as part of Super Mario All-Stars in 1993 and as a standalone enhanced port titled Super Mario Advance in 2001.
Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic was released as a tie-in with Fuji Television's Yume Kōjō '87 event. Made by the same team behind the first Super Mario Bros. game, it explored the idea of a more vertical platformer. The game was retooled in the rest of the world as Super Mario Bros. 2, as the game's original sequel (now known as "The Lost Levels") was deemed too difficult for the western audience; this Mario-ifed version of Doki Doki Panic was later ported in Japan as well under the title Super Mario USA. The Mario franchise would continue with Super Mario Bros. 3, though several characters and ideas from this game, like Birdo and the Bob-ombs, are now part of the Mario franchise thanks to this localization.
As part of its transition to a Mario game, the story was also rewritten: Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Toad all realize that they had the same dream about a strange place called Subcon, the land of dreams, that was being taken over by the dreadful Wart. They then stumble upon the exact same door from their dream, and decide to take it and save Subcon.
The music of Doki Doki Panic was already composed by Super Mario Bros.'s composer Koji Kondo, making it a perfect fit for an improvised Mario game. The only major difference between the two versions the addition of two traditional Mario tracks in the international version ("Ground Theme" for the Subspace world and "Invincible" for the invincibility power-up), although the reused songs were improved slightly.
