This page details prerelease information and/or media for Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins.

Early English Title Screen

As seen in a commercial for the Game Boy, the English title screen once had a much different design, similar to the final Japanese one. However, the title logo is completely different to either final version, and there are a few other differences with the final Japanese version: the early version has a rectangular sign with "Start" posted to it, while the final has an arrow-shaped one with "To Mario Land" instead.

The final also adds the characteristic eyes to the mushroom above the logo, and makes the pipe appear less worn.

Video Games Scan

An issue of the German magazine Video Games showed eight pictures from the new game, most with differences from the final. From top-right to bottom-left:

  • The first picture shows part of a very different-looking overworld, including a "mushroom gateway".
  • The third, fourth, fifth, and sixth shots use "TIME" in the HUD (still present, but unused, in the final) to denote the level timer. The third shot in particular has some mushrooms that aren't in the final at all.
  • The seventh and eighth shots have the final timer style, but also a World-Level designation (in this case, 1-1), which indicates that the magazine seemingly had access to two early builds.
  • The seventh shot shows the Mushroom House-style Goal, which is also present as an unused element in the final.
