there's a special sort of weird feeling that goes with playing Super Mario Bros 2

It's like hanging out with an alien pod person of your friend but in computer game form

@siege It's because they reskinned an unrelated game (Doki Doki Panic) as a Mario game.

@sennomo @siege apparently it was the other way around, according to what i could find it was first developed with the intention of being a mario game, then it was changed and rebranded because of a deal with another company to become doki doki panic, and then it was rerebranded back to being mario by Nintendo of America

@eviedelta @siege Now I'm wondering where my old Nintendo Power magazines ended up. (Probably in the trash years ago.)

SMB2 is alien to the Mario franchise, it was a different game rebranded for western audiences. No wonder people notice how it's distinctly different.
