Two new Mario Games released in 2012 and increase sales of Super Mario Bros. fancy dress costumes Mega Fancy Dress investigates.
(PRWEB UK) 28 June 2012
With two brand new games scheduled for release from the Mario Bros. franchise, 2012 is set to be a great year for Super Mario fans. In August, the New Super Mario Bros. 2 game – made for the 3DS handheld console – will hit stores. Following that, Nintendo will release a brand new console called the Wii U, which has been made to compete with the Xbox market. Owing to the new console, a fresh collection of games will be created and this will see a brand new range of Mario games being sold.
In light of these two new games it can be seen that The Mario Bros. franchise continues to be successful and has now spanned three decades with no decrease in popularity. With a brand new television advert where Sex and the City’s Kim Cattrall advertises the Mario game, it seems Nintendo are going for a commercial approach to make the Mario games appeal to the widest audience. This approach by Nintendo has seen a more diverse audience than ever before enjoying Mario Bros. products, and this, in turn, has had a knock on effect within fancy dress market.
As New Super Mario Bros. 2’s August 17th release date approaches, online retailer Mega Fancy Dress is experiencing a sharp increase in demand for Super Mario fancy dress costumes, and the demand is expected to increase all the way into the holiday season when ‘New Super Mario Bros. U’ makes its debut. The Sales Director of Mega Fancy Dress said:
“It’s been nearly 3 years since the last Mario game and about 27 years since the very first, causing multiple generations to be exposed to the Super Mario craze. It is hardly surprising, therefore, that officially-licensed Super Mario costumes, for both adults and children, are selling better than ever before.”
The two most popular costumes are the officially licensed Super Mario and Luigi characters, which come complete with hats, gloves and adhesive moustaches. Supporting cast costumes available include Princess Peach, Toad and evil villains Wario and Waluigi! Super Mario Bros. costumes are great for a huge range of occasions, from children’s birthday parties, to 1980s-themed parties. Amazingly, Mega Fancy Dress has noted a new craze amongst stag parties where the groom is made to dress up as Princess Peach and then his friends go as Mario and Luigi!
With decades of history and so many great games behind these iconic characters it is easy to see why Super Mario costumes are so popular amongst people of all ages.
