A Mario Sprite History

Interesting little read on the history of the plumber from Nintendo over at NFG Games. No mention of the 3D incarnations of Mario, but it does give a little history, including the reasoning for the mustache, hat, and gloves.

Mario’s basic look was because of limitations of the video game systems, not because that is the way they wanted him to look per se.
