Nintendo Says “Mario Is No Longer A Plumber”

By: Thomas Brewington

Well…all good things must come to an end, right?

According to Nintendo, Mario’s newly updated, Japanese-language profile, the flagship Nintendo character is no longer working as a plumber.

To be fair, Mario hasn’t exactly gone back to his 9-5 job throughout the series. He’s been a multi-sport athlete, a race car enthusiast, and even a doctor at one point.

Mario’s new profile is translated as such:

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…

So with that being said, Mario has been unfairly typecast as the common every man, doing extraordinary things, giving us all a false hope that we too can do something with our mediocre lives.

….That got depressing fast.
