Any entry in the Mario series, especially on Nintendo's primary console, will be greeted with great pomp and ceremony – and rightly so. The series has been running for nearly 30 years and its many titles have been loved by generations of gamers. The iconic story remains the same. Bowser, a giant turtle, kidnaps Princess Peach and hides her in a castle. Mario, an Italian plumber (sometimes accompanied by his brother Luigi), has to save her.
