Happy 25th Anniversery Super Mario Bros.

Today is the 25th anniversary of the Super Mario Bros. This is the first game I remember playing ever and I loved it. The game was first released in Japan today 25 years ago and it made its way to North America March 1986. This game had has some great sequels including Super Mario 3, Super Mario World, Super Mario 64 and New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Mario also made his way to RPGs like Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars and Paper Mario. Now let’s go back to where Mario got his start. Mario made his Debut in the game Donkey Kong at the time his name Jump Man. In Donkey Kong Jr. he took the roll of the antagonist and he tries to Keep DK JR. away from his Dad. Then there was the classic Mario Bros. Arcade game which brought in his brother Luigi. He has also made cameos in games like Mike Tyson’s Punch Out and Tennis on the Game Boy Mario is so iconic everyone knows what you are talking about when you say Super Mario regardless of Age. Super Mario Bros. has also been ported to Super Nintendo, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, and can be downloaded on the Wii Virtual Console. In my opinion Super Mario is the king of platformers. I now leave you with a video of game play from Super Mario Bros. Enjoy.
