Mario is 24-25 Years Old

Post by Winters Thief Zero on Fri Sep 30, 2016 11:03 pm

According to a recently uncovered interview with Miyamoto from 2005, Mario's age was apparently confirmed!

I think it was fortuitous that we didn’t put any restrictions on Mario as a character. Normally when you create a character and present him to the world, all the details get filed in: what’s his favourite colour? what kind of food does he like to eat? Aside from the fact that he’s about 24-25 years old, we didn’t define anything else

I think it's very interesting that nobody really knew this until now. I really didn't think age was something they had thought about with Mario, so it's definitely odd to now know this. I figured he was closer to 30 but I guess I wasn't too far off!

I always thought Mario was 28 and Luigi was 27. I guess this answer makes everyone rethink there head canon about the other characters since someone like Peach would only be 21 or 22 now.
