94 Super Mario Brothers Innovations

From Disturbing Gamer Films to Gamer Bedroom Art

— February 2, 2011 — Tech
The Super Mario Brothers video game was developed by Nintendo over 25 years ago, but is still a relevant icon to this day. Mario and Luigi would set out to rescue Princess Toadstool from Bowser in a magical world filled with green tunnels, mushrooms and a flying Yoshi. This was long before Wii came out, which is why I am surprised and delighted by this collection.

The Super Mario Brothers innovations featured on Trend Hunter include everything from upcycled game cartridges to video game nail varnishes.
