Mario is Nintendo’s mascot and the most famous character in video games history. As the main character of the Mario video games franchise, the character gained huge popularity and has since appeared in more that 200 video games. Mario has now made his way into various genres like fighting, role-playing, racing and puzzle.
The story behind the character of Mario is very interesting. Mario was named after Mario Segale, the landlord of Nintendo of America’s office, who barged in on a company meeting demanding an overdue rent. Also, Mario was shown wearing a cap as game designer Shigeru Miyamoto found drawing hair difficult. He also drew in the moustache, because it was easier to see than a mouth in the crude video game screen resolution back then.
The Mario franchise has perhaps been forever immortalized by over three decades of gaming with this marvelous character. Mario games have evolved a lot over the years and we have tried to take a glimpse at Mario from the various eras. Here is a theme dedicated to one of the best video games ever – Mario.
