Was Super Mario ever a plumber?

Was Super Mario ever a plumber?

Iconic Italian gaming character Mario is not in fact a plumber, at least not now.

As pointed out by Kotaku, Mario is only listed as being a plumber "a long time ago". Instead, he's seemingly a pro athlete.

Nintendo has seemingly confirmed that its iconic character Mario is no longer a plumber.

While "everything cool" doesn't specifically imply a sole focus on sports, each of Nintendo's examples sure does. Mario was explicitly depicted as a plumber in The Super Mario Bros.

"Super Mario Odyssey" is slated for release on October 27 this year, and with the recognitions that it bagged during the Gamescom Awards, it's not going to be surprising if a lot of heads were turned by the game. The game is sounding absolutely incredible, but there's still so much that we're yet to know about the game.

Japanese video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto created the red and blue Italian plumber to appear first in 1981 in Donkey Kong.

Any game disappearing from the app store is odd because most issues can be fixed with an update. Whether 10 worlds are enough to fulfill that definition remains to be seen, especially because the game looks more like a sandbox-type title than the traditional Mario game divided into time-limited levels. The nickname stuck and it wasn't until the release of Mario Bros a few years later, that Mario became a plumber.

You can't put Professional Princess Rescuer on your CV, so we're going to go with Social Influencer.

Whatever Mario's career is, we'll support him all the way. "The scenario dictates his role", he said.

Mario's green drainpipes have become so iconic, in fact, that Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe emerged from a very big green pipe, wearing Mario's hat, during the closing ceremony of the Rio Olympics.
