Mario Day

Mario Day

If you grew up in the eighties or nineties, you’ll definitely know who Mario is. What you may not know is that today is officially World Mario Day! Mario day started as a grassroots gathering for massive Mario fans but is now officially recognised and celebrated by Nintendo every March 10th. 

This pudgy little plumber was birthed by Shigeru Miyamoto, and first appeared in Donkey Kong in 1981. Since then he’s featured in more than 200 video games. Despite his hectic appearance schedule, and the dangerous line of work he’s engaged in (rescuing princesses ain’t easy), he still looks great for 38 years old. Sure, he could do with losing the love handles, but that complexion is perfection!

Whether you’re donning your favourite Mario costume, dusting off the NES for a bit of nostalgia or firing up the Switch for a hardcore modern Mario sesh, we hope you enjoy yourself.
