Miyamoto just confirmed that Super Mario Bros. 3 was in fact all just one long theater performance and that Super Mario is named after Mario Segale, NOA's warehouse landlord in the 80s.

It's shown in this video.

Nasir Gebelli is an Iranian-American programmer and video game developer. Gebelli co-founded Sirius Software, created his own company Gebelli Software, and worked for Square (now Square Enix).

He became known in the early 1980s for producing 3D shooters and other games for the Apple II computer, and later became known for his work at Square, where he produced the early Final Fantasy games alongside Hironobu Sakaguchi, as well as 3-D WorldRunner, Rad Racer, Secret of Mana, and other titles.

I always thought the sports games were more canon than the platformers.
In the sports games they are in a real competition, and you can see the different locations and companies of the mushroom kingdom.
the platformers in which Peach gets kidnapped are a play.

While most of this info is already known I do love how open Nintendo have been the past few years. Gaming history from the 80's is fairly lost to a lot of people since most games were just a quick thing that was rushed out the door. Hell the Mega Man NES games were one of those things that was mostly background stuff while they were investing in their "top games" since they were mostly a arcade developer.

And Nintendo has the biggest history of that era but with Nintendo being extremely Japanese they are the most tight lip about their games. So now they are slowly being more open about their past history we might here amazing things if the right people ask them. Hell seeing them show off all that graph paper and all the effort they put into making SMB to me is one the most important piece of paper in video game history.

It's not a screenshot; if the trail lines weren't enough of a clue, there's the fact that back then there was neither such thing as a native "screenshot" (you'd have to actually take a "shot" of a screen with a camera -and probably a macro lens-, and that wouldn't result in this kind of cleanly delimited square pixels), nor was there any widely used Neanderthal Photoshop software you could use to enlarge it through Nearest-neighbor interpolation into a "high resolution retro pixel art background pls upvote".

The covers in those early NES boxes were motherfucking paper collages. Look at this detail, you can see slightly beveled paper edges catching the light and some fibers from the bits where the cuts weren't clean enough. Somebody received the commission from Nintendo of America (these were probably done by an staff designer, though), played the game, paused around to copy sprites and tiles into graph paper, planned the final illustration, and spent hours cuting the exact pieces of paper needed and precisely pasting them together (again, with actual paste). Of course there was no need to reproduce the actual behavior of the game's visuals. The idea was to show Mario and the fireball, and add a background. But why that particular bit of background? It's intentional; Mario is fucking dying in the cover; Whatever the original designer of the game has to say about the matter is meaningless: whoever employed a day of his or her life to pull this off and actually got it accepted has earned the right for this to be so.

Aight you grew up playing Mario in your childhood and Halo in your teens. There were kids that were born after you that started straight with Halo and aren't familiar with Mario or sidescrollers in general, FPS is their default vidya experience, while you had the chance to experience the shift between 2D and 3D games.

Also I never said they were plebs, I wouldn't call my cousins plebs. I just noted that they think Mario is a hard game, simply because they aren't used to play games like it.

Playing Mario needs some basics nailed down, akin to learning to swim or ride a bicycle. You need to learn to move around quickly and accurately, accelerating and declelerating (use of B/Y) and measuring and timing jumps. Most people I've seen getting frustrated with classic Mario games ignored this and expected beating levels more or effortlessly without practice. Obviously they kept dying, and got frustrated blaming the game. But can you expect to use a bike to commute without learning to ride it first, and blame the bike if you keep falling over?

After you have the basic mechanics nailed down, you gotta get familiar with enemies, their behavior patterns (movement, attacks) and ways to defeat them as well as any of their special properties. Another thing is getting familiar with items and their usage, as well as the what the various blocks in a given game do.
