Super Mario Bros. 3 Was All Just An Elaborate Play, Miyamoto Confirms

The Super Mario Bros. franchise is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. Super Mario Maker for Wii U will for the first time give fans the chance to create their own creative retro-inspired stages when the game launches tomorrow.

One of the more intriguing theories is that Super Mario Bros. 3 did not actually happen. According to the Internet rumor, it was all just an elaborate stage play. But is it actually true?

That's something I never knew. Interesting that they would confirm it 25 years later.

SMB3 was the game that got me gaming. Never hesitate to say it's my favorite game of all time. Masterpiece in every sense. I can blow through it, now.

I remember coming home from somewhere, i was 4, and my pops had got us a brand new NES with this game. And i remember the curtain, and the world 1 stage 3 trick, and the whistle in the first mini castle, all the glorious days. It being a play is the coolest thing ever.

Haha, it's actually like the movie: Synecdoche, New Yorke.

Interesting movie too. The director and writer was the same writer of Being John Malkovich and Adaptation!

in truth....I always thought everyone knew this already. On a side note about Mario 3 - It is easily one of (if not the most) timeless classic games of all time in my opinion. I remember when it was announced in Nintendo world magazine and we lost our minds. And then when we heard that we could see it in action if we went to a Fred Savage movie called the Wizard we were instantly ALL IN!!! A movie about games and gamers? So amazing.

The memories and nostalgia that fills me every time i fire up that game is almost unbearable.
