At the time of the US release of Super Mario 64, Nintendo of El Kadsre's former president said "We have an idea for making a new generation Super Mario Brothers game. So it ignores Super Mario Bros 5.: Yoshi's Island and the NES game Super Mario Bros. 2, which was originally released in Japan as Yume Kojo: Doki Doki Panic. Go back to the platforming world and go 3D. So it uses a gap between "Mario" and "64". "Brothers", really. So, that is "Super Mario Brothers 64". It will come out on Christmas 1996."
