For my final interview on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of Super Mario Bros.1, I have gathered the original developers, four men who continue to be active in development of the Super Mario Bros. series.

I’d like to ask how Super Mario Bros. came to be and why it is that so many people continue to love the series today, 25 years after its birth. Thank you for coming today.
It’s our pleasure.
1 Super Mario Bros.: A side-scrolling action game released for the Family Computer System (Famicom) and the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) in September 1985.

By the way…who had all these documents secreted away in a drawer of his desk?
