Calling all gamers, it’s time to celebrate the greatest video game character ever created. We’re obviously talking about none other than Mario, the lovable star of more Super Mario games than we can count at this point. We fell in love with Nintendo’s Mario character the first time we played the original Super Mario Bros game back in the 1980s, and Mario has only gotten better with age. Now, we get to commemorate the creation of this cute little cartoon thanks to MAR10 Day and MAR10 Week.

“MAR10” is Mario but stylized, of course, and MAR10 Week is an annual celebration of the character who has become one of the most iconic video game protagonists of all time, if not THE most iconic protagonist. He’s an easy character to get behind since he’s always going out of his way to rescue Princess Peach. He also stars in a wide range of games available for the Nintendo Switch, and Amazon is discounting all the best Mario titles right now for MAR10 Week.

A quick note before we get to the deals: There’s a good chance that all the hottest titles in this sales event are going to sell out, so hurry or you’ll definitely miss them.
