Famicom World


Even though Nintendo Co. Ltd. had Disk-kun as the official mascot of the company, Mario came to be better known and more liked. Because of Mario’s quick fame after Super Mario Bros. through Super Mario Bros. 3, pirate companies decided they could make money by hacking Mario into games, slapping on a new label and selling it. They did this for so many games it’s hard to keep track, but here’s a try:
