Super Mario All-Stars (also known as Super Mario Collection in Japan) is a game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System that has four games merged into one, The games being Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, Super Mario Bros. 2 and Super Mario Bros. 3.
This game is notable for other countries finally seeing a release for Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels and getting the name in general. This game in general has updated graphics for all the four games in it, some bug fixes and other minor corrections.
It had two re-releases. One was called Super Mario All-Stars + Super Mario World with the inclusion of Super Mario World. This version was never released in Japan. There was also a remake for the game called Super Mario All-Stars 25th Anniversary Edition which was released for the Wii and had no differences, but was included with a Super Mario History booklet and a soundtrack CD.
- The game's manual suggests that players players hold the controller with their right thumb on the B and Y Buttons while using Type A controls, even though the A and X Buttons respectively function the same as their parallel ones. This is due to the fact the B and Y Buttons are on the inside area and are the buttons normally used for jumping and attacking respectively in adventure games while the A and X Buttons that are near the outside area are usually used for special commands in most other games.
