In 1989, Pepsi and Nintendo teamed up for a holiday giveaway promotion, with prizes ranging from an NES to a copy of Super Mario Bros 2

In the next Mario Maker update, Pepsi should be added as a powerup that turns Mario into Santa Mario (or Mario Claus) and instead of fireballs or ice balls, his projectile is a copy of Super Mario 2

I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. I hope you get lots of goodies, fill your bellies, and spend time with your loved ones. 

1988 saw the arrival of the long-awaited sequel: Super Mario Bros. 2 for the NES. This was the first game that let you control Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Toad, each with a unique ability. 

For example, Luigi could jump higher, while Princess Peach could float during her jumps. All of this, along with new enemies and the ability to throw vegetables, made this game a dream come true.
