Mario's newest game appearance is in Super Mario 3D Land. However, he has many more games coming out in the future like Paper Mario 3DS and Luigi's Mansion 2.


Jumpan was Mario's original name in Donkey Kong. He was most likely called this because he jumped over barrels in the game to get to DK. He didn't have his original outfit yet, but it was similar.

  • Mario is the mascot of Nintendo.
  • Mario games are usually the ones at the top of the best-seller list.
