Celebrate Mario's Birthday In Style

Guess who's birthday it is! That mustachioed plumber, Mario is celebrating 25 years. Nintendo's doing quite a bit to ring in the event.


Aside from the neat retrospective video above, Mario is also getting a special 25th Anniversary Repackaging of what is basically Super Mario All-Stars for the SNES. If you were born with a Wii-mote strapped to your wrist, you might not know what that means. Super Mario All-Stars included Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels (the "true" super Mario Bros. 2), and Super Mario World.


I might not be all that interested in the content of the rerelease, but the box has definitely got my nerd-collection-sense in overdrive. Needless to say, if there's a video game icon that would survive some kind of apocalypse, Mario would be the guy. He's be the ambassador of gaming to those that have never had enough imagination to pick up a control and find out for themselves what the little guy in overalls is all about.

Happy Birthday Mario! Can't wait to see how the rest of your year is celebrated.
