In 1986, Nintendo developed ''Super Mario Bros.#All Night Nippon Super Mario Bros., All Night Nippon Super Mario Bros.'', a special Family Computer Disk System version of ''Super Mario Bros.'', as a contest prize for listeners. The game mostly consisted of levels from the original ''Super Mario Bros.'', though it also included some levels, graphics, and other gameplay changes from the Japanese ''Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels, Super Mario Bros. 2''. Some enemies, characters, and level elements had their graphics changed to reflect people or symbols associated with ''All Night Nippon'' or the Nippon Broadcasting System.{{cite web , url=http://legendsoflocalization.com/super-mario-bros/misc/#variations , website=Legends of Localization , title=Super Mario Bros. – Miscellaneous , access-date=23 January 2018
