* MilestoneCelebration: Nintendo declared the year 2013 "TheYearOfLuigi" to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Luigi's debut in this game.
* PortOverdosed: Aside from ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong'', ''Mario Bros.'' is Nintendo's most-ported game ever, being one of the very few games to be on the Atari 2600, 5200, ''and'' 7800. It was also ported to virtually every home computer of the era and has been re-released many times since then, as an embedded game in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'', a minigame in the ''Super Mario Advance'' series, a swipeable card-loading version for the short-lived e-Reader, and a Virtual Console release.[[note]]The latter two of which are emulations of the NES port. The original arcade version has yet to be officially re-released in emulated form, if at all.[[/note]]
