Super Mario Brothers is a successful video game developed and published by Nintendo in late 1985. Mario and Luigi are well know in the gaming community. For us older folks, I’m sure you remember enjoying Super Mario Brothers. With the games huge success and popularity, many creative sequels and clones have spun off from the original idea. If you still cannot recall what the game is about, let us explain.
In Super Mario Brothers there are two main characters, Mario and his younger brother, Luigi. In order to save Princess Toadstool from antagonist Bowser, they have to conquer the worlds of the Mushroom Kingdom by going to the castle in each to defeat a minion of King Koopa. For over 20 years, Super Mario Bros. was the best-selling video game of all time until being outsold by Nintendo’s own Wii Sports in 2009. Then Call of Duty Black Ops stole the title earlier in 2011.
