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.

    As someone living in the Seattle area, I take pride in having Mario named here, and I'm here to tell you exactly what happened in that warehouse (Also I'm pretty sure it was actually in Bellevue, but nobody knows where that is so it's referred to as the "Seattle Area"). What happened was that the Nintendo staff were in the middle of a meeting, deciding what to name jumpman, when Mario burst through the door and demanded his rent, because Nintendo was behind. It's no mystery, if you look anywhere else you can find it.

    So if Mario wasn’t Mario, he would be Jumpman? Also if Jumpman wasn’t Jumpman, he would be Mr. Video? Also if... Mr. Video... he would be... nobody? And if he was nobody... ahh... who cares. Another thing I wanted to say was that in the days of the N64 I would love to mess with Mario’s face in Super Mario 64. It was so much fun.
