Nintendo Celebrates 25 Years of Mario

I guess more than Nintendo have reason to celebrate 25 years of Mario.  It’s hard to imagine video games with the iconic superstar and to commemorate such a monumental milestone, Nintendo of Japan put together the most epic Mario montage the world has ever seen.  Spanning all the way back to 1985, watch as Nintendo traces Mario’s roots back to the 8-bit gaming days paying tribute to where the phenomenon began.  Since then, Mario and Co. have shipped over 240 million games worldwide.  The original Super Mario Bros. has shipped over 40 million copies in its 25 years on the market.  Who knows where Nintendo will take him next but here’s to another 240 million.
