Since the introduction of the earliest gaming consoles, to the time of arcades being the hub of social activity, right through to the modern day with next-generation consoles, gaming characters have long had a special place in many of our hearts. Some of them have even gone to the extent of becoming, almost, folklore.

It is down to this popularity that led to over 500 million copies of the Mario games franchise being sold worldwide, making it the most popular of all time.
