Nintendo's Mario ditching being a plumber for a cooler life
- By Staff Reporter
Nintendo's Mario is giving up plumbing for the cooler things in life. Mario's profile updated on Nintendo's Japanese website says his various interests are things like tennis and soccer and that he was a plumber a long time ago. Video gaming site Kotaku rendered this translation of the profile: "All around sporty, whether it's tennis or baseball, soccer or car racing, he [Mario] does everything cool. As a matter of fact, he also seems to have worked as a plumber a long time ago."
