On its Japanese website, Nintendo has character profiles for various characters in the Mario franchise. One change in particular is earning a great deal of attention.
This is Nintendo’s character description for Mario:
All around sporty, whether it’s tennis or baseball, soccer or car racing, he [Mario] does everything cool. As a matter of fact, he also seems to have worked as a plumber a long time ago…
For the most part, this seems harmless. That is until you read the last sentence, which indicates that Mario isn’t a plumber any longer. Mario was originally imagined as a carpenter according to creator Shigeru Miyamoto, but became a plumber in 1983 with Mario Bros. and when Luigi was brought into the picture.
