Princess Peach aka Toadstool being kidnapped by the wicked King Koopa back in 1985, Nintendo Entertainment Systems gave birth to a new hero “Prince Mario”. Though we are not sure if it was a good time for Princess Peach or a great time for Nintendo itself (for creating the most successful gaming character ever), it was definitely a glorious time for the gamers out there and a real bad time for King Koopa. Millions of gamers around this planet fought the henchmen of the wicked king and many of them succeeded in saving the princess. Nintendo succeeded in creating one of the most addictive games even in the 2D world with the 8 bit gaming technology. Years passed by and Mario grew and so did the technology. With improved visuals and better looking Mario, the journey continued and the prince appeared in PC games and in all gaming consoles as well.
Mario Is 25 and the World has changed a lot
It seems that the advancements in technology are not just in the real world. With the technological advancements, Mario is to continue the adventure in the Galaxy for the second time. Now, instead of jumping from mushroom to another mushroom, Mario can leap between different Galaxies. Thanks to the cutting edge graphics � the prince is now leaping on a colorful 3D galaxy for the second time in Super Mario Galaxy 2. This time it is “Bowser” whom Mario is gonna deal with. The game plot is again about rescuing Princess Peach. It looks like as long as Princess Peach never stays home, the gamers will be having all the fun. Nintendo was successful in brining great detail to the character even with the 8bit technology. Imagine what they could do with dedicated GPUs of the modern gaming world?
Mario Kart Still Adds fun – For those who don’t care about the Princess Or the Kingdom
Mario has developed many skills through the recent years. And Nintendo has taught the prince how to race back in 2008. Forget about saving the princess and its time to burn some rubber. Mario cart is still the best fun filled kart racing game with a variety of circuits. And guess what it is not just a race against time and the prince has to deal with skill based missions as well.
Nintendo Wii � The Best Console For Mario Games
Though both these Mario titles are available with all the gaming consoles, it is real fun with the Nintendo Wii. As usual, the innovative Nintendo Wii control is what it makes playing Mario game titles real fun. The Wii Wheel that comes packed with Mario Kart transforms the Wii remote into a sporty steering wheel. When it comes to galaxy 2, the Wii controls are simply superb. Nintendo has learned from the confusing controls of the super Mario Galaxy and has made them real simple this time.
So, on the 25th Birthday of Prince Mario, do you choose to save the princess or would you like stick around with the classic old kart racing?
