Mario, a fictional character that would eventually become iconic, was conceived 39 years ago, in 1981, by Japanese video game inventor Shigeru Miyamoto. Mario, who serves as both the mascot for Nintendo and the series' title character, has made appearances in more than 200 video games, making him one of the most well-known and adored video game characters ever.

Mario's original name in the 1981 Donkey Kong game was Jumpman. Later in 1982, Mario became his new name.

Nintendo developed and released Super Mario Bros., the first platformer in the Super Mario series, for the Family Computer (Famicom) in Japan in 1985. It was the follow-up to the 1983 arcade game Mario Bros. Later that year, it was made available on the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) in North America.

Mario protects Princess Toadstool, then named Princess Peach, from King Koopa, subsequently named Bowser, in Super Mario Bros. Mario must to beat a King Koopa minion in each of the eight Mushroom Kingdom worlds' castles in order to rescue the princess.

Mario and the video games he has starred in have been recognized by Guinness World Records as the "First Movie Based on an Existing Video Game," the "Best Selling Video Game Series of All Time," and the "Most Prolific Video Game Character."

Several sequels in the Super Mario video game series were created as a result of Super Mario Bros.' popularity. Super Mario Bros. 2 and Super Mario Bros. 3 were two of these sequels that enjoyed comparable degrees of commercial success. Almost every Super Mario game incorporates ideas and gameplay principles from Super Mario Bros. The popularity of side-scrolling platform games was aided by it.

With 29 million copies sold in North America, the original Super Mario Bros. game is the best-selling game in the Mario series and among the best-selling video games ever. It has sold more than 40 million copies worldwide. A 1990 research conducted in North America revealed that Mario was a more well-known figure to American kids than Mickey Mouse.

Even after all these years, Super Mario Bros. still holds up. In actuality, gamers are continually learning its mysteries, and because there are several ports, it still enchants younger generations of children.
