How Mario Got His Mustache and His Name

  • Опубликовано: 20 окт 2017
  • Gamer or not, you know Mario. Nintendo’s high-pitched, turtle-squashing Italian plumber has become a beloved stalwart of pop culture. But how did this video game icon come to be? Meet the man behind the mustache, Shigeru Miyamoto. As the artist behind 8-bit classics such as Donkey Kong and Super Mario Bros., Miyamoto is largely responsible for shepherding Nintendo’s golden age of video games. Now, about that mustache …
    Join us as we delve into the untold stories behind your favorite video games with Great Big Story’s Emmy® nominated series, 8 Bit Legacy: The Curious History of Video Games. How did a game so bad become iconic? What does it REALLY take to become a Nintendo game master? And what ever happened to the Street Fighter II champion who simply disappeared one day? Dust off your Atari-it’s game time.

    "Instead, Mario became more of a *chubby*, blue collar hero"
    "And I think that type of character is more relatable to players."
    Alright, Miyamoto, no need to absolutely burn us with your roasts. Ow.
