It debuted in Japan on April 21, 1989, in the United States in August, 1989, and in Europe on September 28, 1989. Along with Alleyway, Super Mario Land marks Mario's first appearance on the Game Boy and is the first true Mario game for the handheld game console. Furthemore, it was a launch title for the Game Boy in Japan and North America.

The game drove initial sales of the Game Boy, and has sold over 18 million copies in total, which makes it the third highest selling game of the Mario series until New Super Mario Bros. and New Super Mario Bros. Wii surpassed it in sales between 2009 and 2012. Only Super Mario Bros., at 40 million, and Super Mario World, at 20 million, had sold more copies. Super Mario Land was also the first game of the Mario series created by Gunpei Yokoi.
