Mario Bros. is an amazing simulataneous co-op or competitive
two player game. Way better than Joust if you ask me. Featuring
two sets of controls, a unique Nintendo cabinet, and colorful
graphics, this is one of my favs!
Bros. you might see are conversions. In the early 80s, Nintendo
sold Mario Bros. conversion kits for the smaller Donkey Kong
style cabinets. This is why you'll see alot of orange or blue
Mario Bros. cabinets. These were formerly Donkey Kong or Donkey
Kong Jr. games that were converted to Mario Bros. These are
smaller cabinets and not original dedicated machines. The factory
built dedicated Mario Bros. cabinets are called wide bodies.
They are larger than the typical Nintendo uprights and more
desireable. An easy way to spot one is the speaker that is
centered below the control panel. On the smaller conversions,
the speaker is off center and on the left.
This is a great machine and mine is in fantastic shape. The
monitor had some issues when I got it and the side art was
messed up. The control panel also needed some work. After fixing
all of those things I now have an amazing near mint Mario Bros.
Wide Body. I love it.
