Super Mario 2 Beadsprites

super-mario-2-beadsprite super-mario-2-beadsprite-2I remember as a kid when I saw Super Mario Bros  2 for the first time. I didn’t believe it was actually real, and thought the kid who told me that he had it was lying. When he invited me over, my mind was blown. It seemed so new, so beautiful. The fact you could choose your character blew my mind. They haven’t had a proper Mario game since that you could choose your characters like you could in SMB2.

I am aware that Super Mario 2 was originally Doki Doki adventure in other parts of the world, and updated for American audiences, but enough of the characters and enemies have made it into the following games to make it a proper entry in the series. I gave the princess a golden crown instead of the color from the original sprite that was the same as the skin tone.

I originally made these for the Christmas Perler 2013 collection. I was going to  have them all holding xmas presents in their hands, but changed my mind and just fused them without so I could free up space on my workstation.

    In the new Super Mario 3D World for Wii U, you can choose between the same four characters, with the addition of Rosalina who becomes unlockable post-game. Definitely a “proper” Mario game.

      I’ll pick up a Wii U eventually. I was gonna get one for Christmas for the kids. I gave them a choice of a Wii U or 2 2DSs with Pokemon X/Y. They are currently trying to catch ’em all. =)
