Hudson's Lost Mario Trilogy

When Super Mario All-Stars was released in 1993, the Western world became acutely aware of a Mario title it was originally denied - Super Mario Bros 2 on the Famicom Disk System, aka: The Lost Levels. But there are other games in the Mario series that never left Japan, and some of them are rather good.

I'm going to cover the three Mario titles by Hudson Soft, all released across a variety of Japanese home computers. There’s never been an official explanation as to why or how Hudson acquired the licence to work with Nintendo’s most cherished intellectual properties - presumably Nintendo wanted to profit from the computer market in Japan and decided to let a more experienced company deal with development. Curiosuly, instead of porting the original Mario Bros and Super Mario Bros, Hudson chose to remake them with drastically different gameplay and levels. As such, three decades later, although suffering from the technical limitations of hardware, these titles allow you to see the Mario series in an entirely different way; they are the true “Lost Levels”. What’s sad is that Nintendo hasn’t thought to capitalise on Mario’s popularity by re-releasing them as a trilogy pack.
