Super Mario Bros. Deluxe is a Game Boy Color game that is an enhanced port of the Nintendo Entertainment System game, Super Mario Bros.. It was developed by Nintendo R&D 2 and published by Nintendo. The game was first released in 1999 in North America, Europe, and Australia before receiving a follow-up release in Japan in 2000, albeit on the Nintendo Power flash RAM service. Aside from the main game, which plays very similar to Super Mario Bros., a few additional modes were added, including a port of Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels as an unlockable feature. The game is compatible with the Game Boy Printer, allowing the player to print various images.

Super Mario Bros. Deluxe serves as a precursor to the Super Mario Advance series on the Game Boy Advance,[7] and is likely why the original Super Mario Bros. was not remade for the Game Boy Advance, although it was ported as a Classic NES Series title (or Famicom Mini in Japan).

In 2014, Super Mario Bros. Deluxe was ported to the Nintendo 3DS's Virtual Console, first receiving a promotional release in Japan, Europe, and Australia before receiving a regular release in North America as well as in Europe and Australia, where it was re-released at a slightly higher price.


  • In the source code for Super Mario Advance, Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and Toad each have a voice clip in which they say Super Mario Bros. Deluxe 2 and Super Mario Bros. 2 Deluxe, respectively, suggesting that Super Mario Advance would have been a direct follow-up to Super Mario Bros. Deluxe and a part of the same series.
