Super Mario is a popular video game franchise of the japanese company Nintendo.
While the first game Super Mario Bros. was released in 1985, the series itself didn't a have a main logo (besides the games' logos) until the release of Super Mario 64 in 1996. However, both logos shown below have only been used in merchandise and promotional material and are not commonly seen in the games.
First logo of the franchise, uses the same style of the title logos of both Super Mario World and Super Mario 64. This title debuted on Super Mario 64 and made its final appearance on Super Mario Galaxy 2.
In 2011, the logo had a major improvement: the design of the letters got tweaked, the edges are more rounded now and a dark shadow was added in center of the title. And also the colors of the letters were swapped (except for the "A", second "R" and "O"). This title made its debut with the launch of Super Mario 3D Land.
