    [​IMG] Excerpt from Iwata Asks

    It seems quite a lot of aspects of Mario are due to hardware limitations (e.g, overalls, hat and moustache)

    That's a lie. Mario's fat because he's Italian and he loves his spaghetti with he's momma's homemade ragu!

    Another of those little fun facts about Mario, though I never knew he's was chubby because of hardware limitations.

    Maybe it is the other way around.

    Maybe they made him Italian because he was fat...

    I'd move this to GCD but whatever...

    Read this earlier today and chuckled. A thin Mario wouldn't have been the same.

    Wait...so is the reason Link looks cool because Zelda 1 was played from a top-down perspective?

    This still doesn't explain why he's short.

    Shigeru Miyamoto. The most politically correct man in gaming.

    (And now I turn your attention to Fumito Ueda)

    Make sense... [​IMG]
    They probably why they even did a top-down perspective, to make him look cool.


    What made them make Luigi skinny? Is it because they couldn't with Mario or just plan wanted him to look distinguish(as if green clothes wasn't enough [​IMG]).

    Funny and interesting info tho.

    Back then, Luigi was just a palette swap of Mario with a green color scheme.

    Yes, I mean think about it.
    The original Super Mario Bros, his sprites in it.
    Regular mario is exactly one tile tall, and Super Mario is two tiles tall.
