Even the most casual of video game fan knows that Mario of Super Mario Bros. fame is a plumber, so you can understand why diehard fans were a bit troubled when Nintendo casual slipped out the fact that he's actually not a plumber any longer.

Nintendo dropped the bombshell via an update to Mario's bio on the official website and although it's in Japanese, Kotaku provided a handy translation that reveals Mario "worked as a plumber a long time ago..."

As you can imagine, his left people with a lot of mixed feelings to unpack.
