Super Mario All-Stars, known in Japan as Super Mario Collection (スーパーマリオコレクション), is a video game compilation.

It contains enhanced ports of Super Mario games, including Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 2, and Super Mario Bros. 3.

It contained the first release of Super Mario Bros. 2 outside of Japan, where it was given the name The Lost Levels. This was done to differentiate it from Super Mario USA, which was released as Super Mario Bros. 2 outside of Japan.

Versions

Super Mario All-Stars was released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1993.

It was released for the Super Famicom Box pay-to-play system in Japan on July 14, 1993.

It was then released in a compilation with Super Mario World as Super Mario All-Stars + Super Mario World in 1994.

From 1997 to 1998, a modified version of Super Mario Collection titled BS Super Mario Collection was released for the Satellaview broadcast satellite add-on for the Super Famicom. Five worlds from Super Mario Bros., five worlds from Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, and six worlds from Super Mario Bros. 3 were included.

The original SNES version of Super Mario All-Stars was later released, through emulation, on Wii as Super Mario All-Stars Limited Edition in 2010.

Legacy

In 2020, a Nintendo Switch compilation titled Super Mario 3D All-Stars, known in Japan as Super Mario 3D Collection (スーパーマリオ3Dコレクション), was released. It contained high-definition versions of Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy.
