Mario celebrating as only he knows how

Super Mario turned 25 last year, but Nintendo's only just got around to wresting control of the all-important domain from a nefarious Internet squatter.

Until 25th September, offered free Mario games playable over the Internet, but domain snooping shows it now belongs to Nintendo of America. The page currently directs nowhere, but we're sure in time it'll point towards a hub for all things Mario.

The domain joins, and — among others — in Nintendo's ranks of official domains.
