Nintendo is celebrating 25 years of Super Mario with a host of promotional activities including a competition on Nintendo.co.uk in which fans are invited to share their love for the video game icon.

In the quarter of a century since Nintendo released Super Mario Bros. for the NES, the series has become the best-selling video game series of all time, with more than 240 million units sold globally.

"Stimulated by advancements in technologies, we have always enjoyed creating the Super Mario Bros. games. The series has always taken advantage of the latest technological advancements and is the fruit of creativity of many of my hard-working friends working closely as a team," said Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto.

25 years on and a stupid fat plumber is still arguably the most iconic and relevant character in video games.

I thought they were both real brothers. Unless Mario has some weird Jerry Springer-style secret he's been keeping from us all this time... :/

Also, Mario and Luigi aren't twins. :p
