Very obscure Mario game with foot controls aimed at small children.

Translations of descriptions from Japanese websites:

大型スーパーのゲームコーナー等で発見した、子供用の足ゲー。(^^;
写真はどちらも、千里中央「子供の国」の物です。

At the game corners in big supermarkets etc. I've discovered kids' foot-games. (lol)
These pictures are both of the "Kids' Land" at Senri Chuou.

えー、1993年、バンプレスト製品で、確か「マリオ運動会」。
ステップの操作によりマリオ等の任天堂マリオブラザース関連キャラを動かし、各種ミニゲームをクリアしていくというものらしい。主に走らせたり跳ばせたりで、音に合わせてという要素があるのかは不明。
ステップは鉄板部が無く、強度が不安だったので未プレイなんです。(^^;

Wow, in *1993* Banpresto manufactured, I believe it was "Mario Undoukai".
It looked like you controlled it with a platform, which made Mario & other Nintendo Mario Brothers-related characters move, letting you clear all kinds of mini-games. It was mainly stuff like running and jumping, I don't know whether matching the sound was an element or not.
The platform doesn't have any metal parts, so because I was worried about the sturdiness I still have yet to play it. (lol)

たしかに、DDRが別に業界初の足ゲーって訳ではないのはそうなんでしょうが、これはちと・・・(^^;
DDR SOLO にも手すり欲しいぞ。

It definitely seems like DDR was not the industry's first foot-game, although this one is a little bit...erm...lol
Heck, DDR Solo doesn't even have a handrail!

ダイエー関係でよく見かけるかな?

I wonder if you could catch sight of one of these someplace like Daiei?

■1993年に稼動した子供向けの足を使ったゲームで、DDRのデザインによく似ているが稼動はコチラの方が先です

* A child-oriented game using the feet that came out in 1993; the design resembles DDR a lot, except this came out first.

■DDRに似てると言いましてもバンプレスト製作した物で、曲に合わせて踊るワケではなく、フットパネルを使用してマリオを操作するゲームです

* Although it's described as like DDR, it was manufactured by Banpresto, and the point wasn't to dance along with songs, it was a game where you used the foot panel to control Mario.

■一般のゲームセンターよりもデパートやスーパー内の子供向けアミューズメント施設に設置されている傾向が主だった為、ほとんど目にする事のなかった筺体です

Because it mainly tended to be set up in the kids' amusement facilities in department stores and supermarkets rather than normal arcades, this is a machine that's rarely seen.
