The article states that this game marks the first time Luigi is depicted as taller and thinner than Mario. I've heard the claim elsewhere as well.

But it seems like artwork for The Lost Levels, which came out two years beforehand, includes a tall and thin Luigi.

See this comparison of the brothers.

Are you sure that's a 1986-authentic Luigi and not just All-Stars/DX-version artwork? Cdaveedski (talk) 21:00, 30 December 2015 (EST)
I am not. It's tagged as being from the original game though. We should check the game's manual.

I was unable to find a manual of the scan. Since the original game was called "Super Mario Bros. 2", all the manuals I've found are actually manuals for Super Mario USA. I don't exactly know where to look.

It's obscure so I don't think anyone here has hands on the original manual, but here I found a site directory with manual scans though I dunno if it's fully complete. I think it just added the "Mario's Staff" / "Super Player" letter, included illustrations over sprites for the cast list and reworded whatever was different like Bloobers and Piranhas. Either way any colored art isn't from it since its print Black & White like SMB1. Cdaveedski (talk) 15:30, 3 January 2016 (EST)
