Super Mario Bros.

The date is September 16, 1985 Japan. On the shelves of the Japanese stores is a new game for the popular Nintendo Famicon console.

The box is yellow, and the cover shows a group of monsters alongside a princess in a pink dress, who is being held hostage in the hand of a giant evil turtle. Under the cover picture a text reads “????????????”, Super Mario Brothers.

But what really catches the eye, is the man jumping. He is wearing red overalls, brown shoes, a blue shirt, gloves, and a hat which over time becomes his most iconic feature. His name is Mario, he is a little chubby, he is a plumber, and over the next 35 years, he is going to star in over 200 different games.
