“I think that inside every adult is the heart of a child. We just gradually convince ourselves that we have to act more like adults.” - Shigeru Miyamoto, Creator of Mario
Wa-hoo! Today is a holiday for gamers worldwide — National Mario Day, when we celebrate everyone’s favorite Goomba-stomping Italian plumber, Mario. The mustached hero of the Mushroom Kingdom is the most recognizable character in the video game world and has been Nintendo’s mascot since his first appearance in 1981. Over 210 million copies of the Mario game series have been sold — and many, more friendships ruined over a particularly competitive game of Mario Kart. Plug-in and play today and celebrate National Mario Day!
