Finally, #Mario has updated his resume after 34 years of his plumbing job.
Mario wasn't always been a plumber.
Previously, Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto described the character then named Jumpman in 1981's Donkey Kong as a carpenter, before he was called a plumber with the release of Super Mario Bros. in 1985. In fact, it seems Mario has performed every job there is... except actual plumbing (going down Warp Pipes doesn't count).
"With (1983's) Mario Bros".
This does bring up the question, though: If Mario couldn't find any work as a plumber, how's he been supporting himself over the years?
If Mario's not actually a plumber, then what do we really know about him? Especially the green drainpipes have become so popular.
The news comes as Nintendo prepares to launch Super Mario Odyssey for its Switch console on October 27, 2017, in which, thanks to a supernaturally-powered cap, Mario can further expand his professional profile by becoming inanimate objects and even mortal enemies. Many of his main characteristics, such as being Italian and living in NY, would have been determined by the choice of this job.
But removing Mario from his plumber profession is a disfavor to the fans who fell in love with the iconic hero long ago before his days of playing tennis, baseball, racing etc.
