Super Mario 3 Was Just A Stage Show: Miyamoto Discusses Super Mario Franchise Myths

September 10, 2015


This is a short video made to promote tomorrow's release of Super Mario Maker in which Shigeru Miyamoto discusses some of the Super Mario franchise's myths. Although he doesn't actually do too much discussing, he mostly just shakes or nods his head, which is exactly how I like to discuss things too. He does confirm that Super Mario 3 was just a stage play though, so we'll all be able to sleep better tonight knowing he put that to rest. Unless there's a spider in your bed, in which case you won't be sleeping better until you're watching the planet burn from the moon. I swear I felt something crawl on my leg last night after I turned the lights out so I slept in the bathtub with the shower running and a snorkel on.

Keep going for a graphic explaining the Super Mario 3 play theory, as well as the video.


Thanks to Luc, who has a theory that Super Mario Galaxy actually takes place in the eye of Miyamoto as he watches the make-believe universe he created.

    Aah I knew it! The curtains, the fact that the platforms and whatnot are bolted to the background and you can see the shadow on the backdrop... the floor which looks like a stage floor...

    Hammer Bros. suit ftw.

  • Xockszky

    The Hammer Bros. suit is the most kick ass suit in SMB3. You don't get too many of them though, and I always end up not using them because I want to preserve them... then my last chance to use them is in Bowser's castle, but then I lose it right away to that thing at the beginning that shoots lasers, even though I normally always avoid that in normal Mario mode.

  • Sooper

    ...Did he just indicate that he's Bowser Jr.'s mom?

  • bakuryu

    He looks like Mike Myers in that Seuss based movie.

    So Mario just really sucked at acting out a fight with a frog suit on.

    Or was that me that sucked?

    You know, I've never actually read these all the way through before.

    GoogleSpecialSuperJobs sounds like the best employment center I could possibly imagine, free from customer service, dead end desk jobs, and really really bad safety videos.

    Sad thing is though I now realize what my aunt was talking about a year ago when she said she saw someone saying they made a bunch of money online with google. The youthful naivete of old people on the internet.
