Mario turns 25!…in Japan

The 13th of September marks the 25th anniversary of the Japan release of Super Mario Bros. Love ’em or hate ’em, the Mario games have been a huge part of the gaming world for gamers of all ages. To commemorate this, it seems there will be Mario Anniversary collection to be released in Japan containing: Wii version of Super Mario All-Stars, History of Mario book, and a soundtrack covering music from all the games. Will this be released in the U.S. in the future? Would be smart. So in celebrating our favorite mushroom eating, turtle hatin’, (sometimes environmental activist) plumber, what are some of your favorite memories/moments/games that you have from the mushroom kingdom?
