The Hat Makes the Man [ COMIC ]

According to Jeremy Kaye, the creator of UP and OUT and this comic, this comic takes place before Luigi’s Mansion… Sometime in the 90’s.

Do you think Nintendo will ever change Mario’s character design beyond what it is now or is Mario now like Mickey Mouse and his look is pretty much etched in stone? I mean, it look at the box art for Super Mario 64 and then look at the box art for Super Mario 3D World (which was released 17 years later) and you will little to no change in Mario’s appearance beyond advancements in the 3D render software’s capabilities used to create his image. Still, that’s only a 17 year span of time and a lot has changed since Nintendo was founded in 1889. So who knows…

    But Mario did go missing a second time, in Luigi’s Mansion…

    Mario truly is an ass to Luigi.

      There was a Game Theory episode to that effect.

    I really enjoyed playing Mario’s missing. I think it was the only SNES game that I actually finished.
