zavvi would like to say a big “thank you” to our friends at Nintendo. They have certainly put a smile on the faces in the office today by sending us a lovely balloon and a delicious cake so that we can celebrate Mario’s 25th Birthday. Needless to say it didn’t last long!
25 years ago today the first Super Mario Bros game was launched in Japan and since then it has experience phenomenal success! I’m sure there is not one gaming fan out there who has not enjoyed hours of fun with at least one of the 10 official Super Mario Bros games that have hit the shelves. In fact I reckon that Mario and gang was probably the reason why so many people fell in love with videogames. I certainly remember my first Mario experience on the SNES! What a blast from the past. I’d love to hear your first memories….
