Happy MAR10 Day! #Playnintendo

Today, March 10 is officially MAR10 Day!  As if my family and I needed another reason to enjoy the likes of our favorite Nintendo character.

Celebrated by Mario fans each year, the 10th of March is a special day to remember his impact on pop culture, thanks to how the day on the calendar resembles the beloved character’s name. Nintendo is celebrating with fans by listing some of the famous mustached hero’s achievements throughout the past year and by asking fans to participate by tweeting their favorite Mario moments using the #Mar10Day hashtag.

Mario’s Year in Review:

o   Mario had a big milestone in 2015! He celebrated 30 years since he leaped his way into people’s hearts in 1985’s Super Mario Bros. Fans across the country celebrated with him in this fun video.

o   Nintendo launched Super Mario Maker, a game that lets fans create and share their ownSuper Mario Bros. levels. So far, 6.2 million levels have been created by fans!

o   Facebook’s engineers celebrated Mario by creating their very own Super Mario Maker levels for fans to play. Check them out here.

o   A special 30th Anniversary Mario amiibo was released in a classic 8-bit design. The limited-edition figure was a tribute to the original Super Mario Bros. game that launched for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1985.

o   Mario hit the courts with the launch of Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash for Wii U. In the game, fans play as Mario and friends in intense tennis competitions.

o   For the first time, Mario teamed up with his paper version, Paper Mario, in the colorful action RPG Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam for Nintendo 3DS.

o   With the help of his voice actor, Charles Martinet, Mario celebrated the grand opening of the Nintendo NY store in Rockefeller Plaza.

…and Mario will have more to celebrate in 2016! Competing with his friends in the Olympic Games, Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games is coming to Nintendo 3DS on March 18 (with the Wii U version launching this summer).

Don’t forget to wish all your friends and family “Happy MAR10 Day!”
