One of the most beloved and fondly thought of characters of our era, Mario has certainly carved his niche into the annals of video game history.
This infographic (courtesy of BitRebels) discusses the history behind an amazing franchise. From Mario’s core concept and design to its use of simultaneous multiplayer action, this infographic goes back in time and gives us the backstory of our favorite plumber and his friends.
(Edit: It has been brought to my attention that two bits of information shared in this infographic may be false. First, Super Mario Bros. 3 was included as a bundle, specifically the Nintendo Challenge Set. Also, there exists evidence that may suggest that it was Miyamoto’s rented warehouse, and not his apartment that was debated between himself and Mario Segale. Thank you, IrwinRShyster and Sidetrakkd of Reddit, for the information!)
