25 years ago, a little plumber in red overalls side-scrolled into our living rooms and our lives with Super Mario Bros. and video games have never been the same.
To quote the 25th Anniversary website, Nintendo writes:
Twenty-five years ago, Nintendo’s original Super Mario Bros.™ video game made its debut in Japan and changed the world of video games forever. Since then, Mario™ has become one of the most renowned and beloved video game characters around the globe.
Mario is all but synonymous with Nintendo. It’s difficult to think of one without thinking of the other. Super Mario Bros. contains a magical blend of characters, graphics, challenges, music and action that still captivates players today. The original game sold 40.24 million units worldwide, and remains one of the best-known, best-loved video games in the world. It popularized the side-scrolling format and established elements of the Mushroom Kingdom that are still used in today’s Mario games. Super Mario Bros. frequently appears on lists of the best games of all time.”
To celebrate Mario’s anniversary, Nintendo is seeing RED! A red DSi XL, red Wii bundle that includes Wii accessories like Wii remote and Motion Plus add-on. Include a red Nunchuk controller with a copy of Wii sports and a copy of New Super Mario Bros. will have you seeing red in no time too!
So comment below if you will rush out and buy the red Wii or DSi XL, just because it is a 25th anniversary edition, just because you like the color red, or could really care less. Would you like to see a different color Wii?
