No real proof that Super Mario is a North American launch title. 

You mean the fact that someone uploaded a picture of a 72 pin board with date codes printed in the 39th week of 1985 (Sept 23 - 29th) isn't really that much proof that it WASN'T ready almost a month later?  I think if anything its harder to argue it WASN'T part of the set.  Although I would agree its certainly possible not many were printed but I would say it was available on Oct 18 but in limited quantities.

was super mario bros. on the poster that came with the deluxe set ? ( after research i see that it was ) If i recall super mario was available sometime in the spring or summer after launch which was why it was packed in with the action sets not the deluxe sets.... Please someone correct me if im wrong this is all off the top of the head


Im also pretty sure there werent any SMB guidebooks at launch either that would have been something marketed after the system took off .
