Mario had a good run. But with so many other awesome Nintendo characters, it's time for gaming's favorite plumber to pass the plunger-shaped baton.
You can’t force a change in regards to the face of Nintendo. Mario became the face by the popularity of Super Mario Bros. However, I do feel Nintendo could give other characters more of the spotlight by giving them their own games. Yoshi, Luigi, Toad, and Wario have had decent success with their outings and Splatoon (was going to be a Mario shooter) has become a runaway hit. I would love to see Nintendo make more games in different genres.
Move over Mario? What’s next, move over Goku, Batman, Spider-Man, Mickey Mouse, Simpsons, Spongebob, Sonic the Hedgehog, or Master Chief?
