Mario’s age

In an old interview from 2005, Shigeru Miyamoto talked a bit about Mario, and explained that when they created that character, they didn’t put any restrictions on what he could be. In fact, the only definite thing about him is his age, which is definitely pretty surprising: he’s supposed to be only… 24-25 years old!
