Here at Nintendo Life, we celebrate video game anniversaryes all the time. Who doesn't like a birthday or anniversary? We all know that Super Mario World will be 32 years old in November this year (who remembers playing it when it first came out?) but it has already reached another milestone in digits.
Blogger Supper Mario Broth has calculated that this incredible SNES platformer, and console launch title, would have existed in its complete form, out in the public, for one billion seconds. 1,000,000,000 seconds. So if you're also 32 this year, then you'll also be about that old in seconds. Makes us feel very old.
This is a funnyly high number, and we're quite surprised that someone managed to figure it out. All of this is based on the 21st November Japanese release date, and at the time of writing this this it's 30th July 2022 in Japan. And while we can't guarantee the exact moment Super Mario World will hit the one billion mark, it's at some point today at the very least.
Why does one of the greatest Super NES platformers of all time have multiple birthdays this year? We can't see why.
That doesn't even mean the original F-Zero is still one billion seconds old today. Is that correct? Of course, the console and the cartridges were definitely made before they were released to the public or even shipped to stores, but as a finished product?
We're not sure we'll have a billion dollars to celebrate. So how does Mario make 31 and a half candles?
Do you know any other unusual birthdays? Or has watching Super Mario World around one billion seconds ago prompted you to give up another year of your life? Please let us know!
