A Mario Bonanza in the Gaming World
Witness Mario and Goombella, with her signature ponytail, confronting Goomas, with one hovering above them. As the image suggests, Mario is everywhere these days, and there's a good reason for this influx of Italian-American adventures. It's not because the Feast of San Gennaro is around the corner, but because the Super Mario Bros. Movie has been a massive hit since its April release.
This movie raced to the top of the year's highest-grossing films list, only to be overtaken by Barbie, but comfortably retaining the second spot with an astounding $1.3 billion in worldwide earnings. It's almost like Nintendo foresaw this success and strategically planned to capitalize on Mario's modern-day popularity by releasing a deluge of Mario and Mario-related Switch games in the upcoming year.

Additionally, Nintendo is capitalizing on this success by introducing Mario to a new generation: young children. These future gamers are just starting to master the skills needed to handle a Switch and are eagerly seeking more Mario games, which Nintendo is ready to provide. If you thought there was a shortage of Mario games before, you're in for a surprise.
