Mario, main character of the series, as he appears in New Super Mario Bros. Wii
KombatgodAdded by Kombatgod

Mario is a series of video games by Nintendo. It is often referred to as the Super Mario series, but not every game in the series is called Super. The Super Mario series can actually be considered a sub-series to the Mario series.

The character Mario first starred in the 1981 arcade game Donkey Kong, and only later starring in is own series, the first episode being Mario Bros., that hit arcades in 1983. Because he was the main character in the Donkey Kong game it is often considered the first Mario game, but technically it is not part of the Mario series.

Video GamesEdit

A high number of games has been released, and a precise number can't be defined, depending on considering part of the series some spin-off titles, or counting more than once a remade game. This list tries to include every known Mario game, also including upcoming titles, sorted by genere, for a total of 123 different episodes, 1 expansion pack and 27 remakes or compilations, making a total of 151 Mario releases. The list does not include re-releases of single games (such as the Game Boy Advance NES Classics releases of Super Mario Bros. and Dr. Mario), considered different "versions" of the same game, and games that are not titled "Mario", such as Super Princess Peach or Luigi's Mansion, considered part of their own series.
