‘Super Mario’ celebrates 30th anniversary

Super Mario series creator Shigeru Miyamoto appeared on stage as a crowd cheered at a packed live-music venue that can house up to 700 people. He watched a human-size mascot Mario blow out candles on a birthday cake.

“I was touched when I sang a birthday song with all of you,” Miyamoto said.

“Happy birthday, Mario!”

Video game music composer Koji Kondo played music used for newly released Mario software on a keyboard. Other musicians, including performers on a violin and an accordion, separately performed well-known Mario music.
