Nintendo's Super Mario World Hacked Into A Marriage Proposal

Super-Mario-World-Hacked-To-Become-A-Marriage-ProposalWe all love a good romance, especially when it involves our passion of retro gaming. One loved up gamer recently used Nintendo's 16-bit classic Super Mario World to propose to his girlfriend, by hacking the question into an arrangement of coins.

This, however, wouldn't be the first time our gaming past has been used in marriage proposals. Chrono Trigger's in-game dialogue was once edited to spell out the all important question, as was Super Mario World several years ago too.

So while this idea is anything but new, the romantics at RetroCollect have been warmed by yet another pixelated proposal - one we know our traditional other halves probably wouldn't appreciate quite as much.
