1.) When was Nintendo Established?

September 23, 1889 by Fusajiro Yamauchi

2.) Did Hiroshi Yamauchi cheat on his wife and how?

No, that's what I think. She gave birth to 3 kids, that's what I know.


3.) Why did Shigeru Miyamoto draw a hat on Mario when he first drew him?

I don't know. But I think it had to do with Jumpman(Mario) being a plumber or carpenter.


4.) Who said the following quote, "The arcade version of Gradius is really difficult, right? I never played it that much, and there was no way I could finish the game, so I inserted the so-called Konami code."?

No idea.


5.) Who is the oldest person to play a Wii?

My grandma. >_>

6.) Unscramble: heaven luck to leave

Leave luck to heaven.

8.) Name at least 2 correct Japanese to English translations of Nintendo.

任天堂株式会社, --> Nintendo
That's all I know.

9.) True or False: Yoshi isn't in every level of Super Mario World?

If my memory serves right, false.

11.) How is Ridley Scott and Tom Cruise related to the inspiration behind 'Legend of Zelda'?

Tom Cruise is Link! WOOT! Nah, no idea.

12.) In Mario 64 you may remember seeing Koopa Air somewhere. Explain what it is.

I have no idea what that is.

13.) Bowser and Mario on the same side in what game(not including sports games)?

I've never seen a game like that, so I say there is no video game that has that.


14.) What is Mario's last name?

People say it's Mario, but it's not. He doesn't have a last name, only Mario. I also have proof, if you want it. But I think his nickname is Jumpman.

15.) Unscramble and give the US name: ptckoe tsosnrme

Uhhh....no. I will not. >_>

16.) In what year and by what company was a poll results released showing Mario was more popular among kids compared to Micky Mouse?

I don't know, but I do know that Micky Mouse is garbage when compared to Mario. :P

18.) What was the production budget of this John Leguizamo flick?

Don't know. Do even some of these questions have anything to do with Nintendo? 0_o

19.) True or False: Did Iggy Bill transform from Bullet Bill when you finished the Special World in Super Mario World?

If my memory serves correct, yes.

20.) 'A Bug's Life' movie was outsold by what game?

Dreamworks's Antz.

Some might be wrong or right, so don't go crazy on me.

3 - Good. He looks awesome with that hat.

9 - Sorry about that. Haven't played SMW in a while, forgot. :/

13 - Really? lol, never played that game, didn't know.

14 - Not true. There last name is not Mario. They are called the Mario Brothers because of Mario, himself. Not even Nintendo has the answer to that question, they say that some questions can't be answered. :/

Wow, I've actually found most of the answers via Google!

However...
- I can't find any info about Hiroshi Yamauchi cheating on his wife. So I assume this did not happen, despite how the question is written to suggest it did.
- Can't find any news item about the oldest Wii player, just a forum post where someone bragged that their 89-year-old grandmother did, but I assume there was a news piece on this.
- Not sure if Yoshi is in every level of Super Mario World. I would think there's some he's not, but can't think of any specifics... As for the castle levels, Mario can be shown riding Yoshi at the start and then dismounting, not sure if that would count lol
- The Mario vs Mickey poll, I found that it happened in 1991, but can't find which company did it
- Can't find any answer to the last question about Iggy Bill

I'm pretty sure that Disney made that poll, there idiots. -.-

Also, I'm pretty sure Iggy Bill did turn into Bullet Bill, something in my head tells me, and I think I did see it in SMW in the special world. :/

BTW, why do you even need to know this? 0_o

Saru if it was named Mario brothers after Mario, then why would you be able to play as Luigi? I remember seeing Luigi Mario on some game. Also the movie calls them Mario Mario, and Luigi Mario, along with the cartoon, but I believe those not to be canon. Now that I think about it, I think it was on Super Smash Bros Melee, on Luigi's trophy that calls him Luigi Mario(I know its not canon, but it is made by Nintendo so they wouldn't miss that detail if it wasn't true).

I found a site (can't link to other sites yet, search engine: "interesting facts about nintendo" and click the 3rd result), which says a real life person that Mario was based on. I'm going to cite that and use that last name, and then also cite the film and use "Mario"

Then I don't know why Nintendo just doesn't say it. I won't be convinced until they say it, they haven't. They might put into games, maybe only to shock Nintendo fans, but I'm still not sure.

Mario was the mascot of Nintendo, and Nintendo probably liked him more than Luigi, so they called it Mario brothers. Doesn't it sound weird when you say Luigi Brothers? :/

They might named Mario Mario and Luigi Mario in the cartoon, I'm talking about why Nintendo just doesn't say it. They just show it, and maybe only to surprise Nintendo fans.
