Sorry to burst your bubble but since Mario first appeared in Donkey Kong in 1981 he actually is 34 already. Also that is actually the first Mario game I played and besides Pack Man its one of the best arcade games from the early 80s.

That was Jumpman, It was not called Mario until 2 years later and its first videogame with that name is Super Mario Bros, and the 30th anniversary is for that game.

The second game Mario appeared in is indeed from 1983 but its Mario Bros. and not Super Mario Bros.   Mario Bros. is also the first game where Lugi made an appereance.  Also the first game where Mario is offically named Mario is Donkey Kong Junior from 1982.

Yep you are right, I forgot about the Mario Bros arcade and I didn´t even know Donkey Kong Junior lol

But anyway, the true star was born with Super Mario Bros, also that was the game that defines the Mario gameplay and this anniversary is for that game
