Nintendo’s Super Mario Bros. 2, based on the Famicom’s Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic, was first released in October 1988, and the 2D side-scrolling platform game consisted of 20 different levels spanning seven worlds. This pristine condition copy was discovered in a box of video games sitting out back of a crowded walk-in closet in Floyds Knobs, Indiana.
