As it does not stop to launch games starring Super Mario, Nintendo decided to update the story of the mustachioed plumber. And in what should surprise many, the company informs that it is no longer plumber.
This finding appeared on the official website of Mario in Japan. Kotaku translated the character’s new profile, and it appears that “he seems to have worked as a plumber a long time ago.”
Mario’s new profile portrays him as a guy focused on sports. “Whether it’s tennis or baseball, football or racing, it does everything [in a way] legal.”
Higeru Miyamoto, who may be considered the “father” of Mario, has already said that at first Mario neither plumber was. When he first appeared in “Donkey Kong” (1981), he was a carpenter – which made sense, since the game was in a building.
With the release of “Mario Bros.” two years later, they thought it best to turn it into a plumber because much of the adventure took place underground. “The scenario dictates its role,” commented Miyamoto.
