Super Mario was an important part of everyone's childhood. Hours were spent playing games on our N64s, Super Nintendos and Game Boys, trying to navigate our way through the Mushroom Kingdom.
Of course, we all got a little too excited when it was announced that our favorite Italian plumbing brothers were getting their own TV show in 1990. We probably should have waited until after we saw it...because hoo boy, it was bad.
In 1993, we were subjected to the movie Super Mario Bros. starring John Leguizamo and Bob Hoskins. To say it was sub par would be the understatement of the year.
I'm sorry, this is not a goomba.
Now, an announcement from Nintendo is giving us hope that better things are coming our way.
