Super Mario

Super Mario is a platform game series created by Nintendo based on Mario. Alternatively called the Super Mario Bros. series or simply the Mario series, it is the central series of the greater Mario franchise. At least one Super Mario game has been released for every major Nintendo video game console. Many Super Mario video games are on non-Nintendo platforms. There are twenty-one similar games and one cross-series game that may or may not be included as part of the series. The Super Mario games are typically in the fictional Mushroom Kingdom with Mario as the player character. He is often joined by his brother, Luigi, and occasionally by other members of the Mario cast. As a platform game, the player runs and jumps across platforms and atop enemies in themed levels. The games have simple plots, typically with Mario rescuing the kidnapped Princess Peach from the primary antagonist, Bowser.
