Mario is no longer a plumber, according to official profile

According to a recent update, the legendary Mario character, of Nintendo, is no longer a plumber. This may not be a big surprise because throughout dozens of video games we have seen Mario do everything, less than a plumber.


Mario, the popular character of Nintendo, is no longer a plumber. Or rather, it has not been for a long time, since we know it. Although dressed as such, the fact that in his games he does anything but fix jams indicates that he has already left his previous job a long time back.

Suddenly, the official website of the Japanese company shows a profile of Mario different from the previous one, one in which it clarifies one of the doubts about this former Italian plumber who speaks in English and created by Japanese.

This is how the official description of this mythical character now says:

“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…”

But Mario has also had other professions throughout his history. Shigeru Miyamoto has explained that when he was born as “Jumpman” he was basically a “carpenter”, as the 1981 Donkey Kong game takes place on a construction site.

With this update, Nintendo clears up one of the doubts about Mario that have been circulating for decades. It does so in a key moment, just a couple of months from the launch of Super Mario Odyssey, one of the most anticipated games for Nintendo Switch. It is one of the key launches for this game console, especially in the face of the holiday season, one that is particularly complicated.

Of course, we can not forget Dr. Mario!
