And from short answers, it’s time we moved on to the longer answers, so here’s the Final Three round:
What does Mario and his associated franchise mean to you?
The Mario franchise as a whole has some great games! Mario isn’t just a plumber but a racing driver, sport star and the mushroom kingdoms favourite hero (Sorry Luigi)! For all these reasons is why Mario is successful and is as known as he is today. Nintendo don’t limit him to just platformers but take risks like the recent crossover with the Rabbids. But to me Mario is my favourite gaming character as all his games are phenomenal.
What is a Mario moment you will always treasure?
Playing the DS version of New Super Mario Bros. and defeating the final boss. This was really enjoyable as I loved that game and know the game like the back of my hand.
What are you most looking forwards to doing in Super Mario Odyssey?
Mario Odyssey’s release is approaching fast and I’m waiting patiently but there’s one question on my mind and I need an answer for it. “Why is there a realistic looking Dinosaur in Mario Odyssey?” The only conclusion I have come to is that it must be Yoshi! I’m sure I’ll find out soon but I just found it very strange when I first saw it and still do now.
