THE MARIO BROS SERIES COULD HAVE BEEN THE POPEYE SERIES

Fun fact: Back in the early 80s the first #nes game was going to be a Popeye’s game where Popeye was out to safe Olive from Brutus, Nintendo couldn’t get the character’s legal permissions in time for the game deadline so Shigeru Miyamoto covered the visuals with his improvised art. Thus the first look of Mario was born as “Jumpman”, Donkey Kong and Princes Peach consequently as well.

Old school gamers, rejoice: Nintendo is launching the Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System on November 11th.

It looks just like the iconic console of yesteryear, except it’s much smaller, includes an HDMI cable to convey the graphics in all their retro glory on your flatscreen, and it’s got thirty games built in.

Megahits like Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, and the original Super Mario Bros. trilogy, along with dozens of others to while away whatever free time you may have. (Tecmo Bowl, we’re looking in your direction.)

In addition to the petite console itself, the $59.99 console comes with one classic controller—which you can connect to a Wii Remote controller, to play Virtual Console NES games on a Wii U or Wii console.
