Are You Really an Oldschool Super Mario Fan?


Since the 1980s, Super Mario has inspired the world. From amazing video game series to a questionable live action movie, the legacy of Super Mario is well known. With many retro games re-released on Nintendo Switch (though we don't blame you for holding onto your NES), it reignites our memory of a simpler time. Like any successful game franchise, there are many different games within the Super Mario world, from Super Mario Maker to Super Smash Bros., which means there's a game for everyone within the universe. The original Super Mario Bros. was released in 1983 as an arcade-style game played on a black background. Although it's come a long way with technology, imagination, and resources, Super Mario as a whole owes everything to its origin story. With how far the character has come and how many fans he has accumulated - who are the original fans that have remained loyal since the beginning?

Did you know?

Mario had a completely different name in the beginning

Mario is a very memorable and catchy name that has been associated with the character for a long time. Not only does it have a nice ring to it, but it also plays into Mario's stereotypical Italian design. Despite all this success, Mario was not the first choice when naming the character. Due to his original appearance in Donkey Kong, he was named Jumpman because of the challenge of jumping over huge barrels thrown by the large ape-like antagonist from above. While the Nintendo Office in the US was trying to devise a better name for the American version of the game (the character was created by Shigeru Miyamoto, who originated the much loved Donkey Kong game), their landlord: Mario Segale, interrupted their meeting. After that, his name was used instead of the much less catchy Jumpman, which became wildly popular across the world.
