In a video released by Nintendo, the Godfather of some of the most iconic video game characters ever – Shigeru Miyamoto – has answered questions about the most famous plumber in the world.
With Mario turning 30 this year and Super Mario Maker hitting shelves, Nintendo have PR’d the fuck out of the franchise by dropping one of the most bizarre videos in a while. Even by Nintendo’s standards.
The ever popular Miyamoto-san nods and shakes his head when asked questions about his most famous creation – questions like, “Is Mario named after former Nintendo of America warehouse landlord Mario Segale?”, “Would you let Dr. Mario operate on you?” and “Do you know who Bowser Jr’s mother is?”
It’s great to see Mr Miyamoto still enjoying the character he created. Even if it is with Nintendo’s weird sense of humour…
Super Mario Maker let’s you mess about making Mario levels of your own design and is available now on the Nintendo Wii.
