Mario designer Shigeru Miyamoto is Bowser Jr.’s mother.

Yesterday I told you that we would finally learn who banged Bowser.

Well: the full Mario Myths video is out now, and I’m sorry to say Nintendo did not meet our expectations. Asked if he knows who Bowser Jr.’s mother is, Miyamoto nodded and pointed at himself.

Look, we can either be eternally disappointed or we can run with my new head canon: Miyamoto banged Bowser.

Here’s the full video, which confirms that all of Super Mario Bros. 3 is a performance and that Mario punches blocks to break them, among other things.
