Donkey Kong/Donkey Kong Jr./Mario Bros. is an arcade system released in 2004 for North America in which players could choose which of the three games they wanted to play. The games available are in the name of the arcade system, which is Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr. and Mario Bros. All three games are from the internationally released arcade versions as opposed to the Japanese arcade versions or the NES Arcade Classics Series versions found on the Nintendo PlayChoice-10.

Controls[edit]

All the games use a joystick and a jump button. Because Mario Bros. can be played with two people, a second set of controls is also provided.

Trivia[edit]

  • Up until the Arcade Archives versions on the Nintendo Switch, this machine was the only release for all three games that featured the original arcade versions since their inception.
  • Because the aspect ratio for Mario Bros. is different from the other two games, it may appear stretched or cropped to fit on screen.
  • Two different machine models were produced - one is in a shaped like the original Nintendo arcade machines, while the other is a cabaret version.[1]
  • A cocktail table version was advertised in a flyer (alongside a Pac-Man 25th Anniversary cocktail table), but both machines were seemingly never released.[1]
