Brothers of Reinvention

The portly plumber who’s out to save Mushroom Kingdom and maybe get a kiss from the princess is still hopping, jumping, stomping his way from the original “Super Mario Bros.” (released in 1985) to the latest “New Super Mario Bros.” (released in May). He’s still the friendly Everyman, still in the same red-and-blue overalls, still sporting the same mustached, rosy-cheeked, aw-shucks look.

Great look at video game’s most long lasting brotherhood.
