Nintendo confirms that Mario is no longer a plumber

What we do know is that this news left many fans scratching their heads:

Damn if Mario ant a plumber from Brooklyn then what is he then? Nintendo’s official Japanese site has quietly   changed the biography of the world’s most famous plumber. Super Mario isn't even a plumber anymore. What about all the heavily-plumbing-based gameplay? #Nintendo

First brexit and now Mario isn't plumber any more. Peach and Bowser aren't royalty anymore? — Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) September 5, 2017

No word yet on if Luigi has decided to carry on the family business. And the game’s stage was a construction site, so we made him into basically a carpenter.

Mario is not a plumber anymore? Translated by Kotaku, the biography now defines the character as: “All around   sporty, whether it’s tennis or baseball, soccer or car racing, [Mario] does everything cool. Bowser Jr is adopted? …. As a matter of fact, he also seems to have worked as a plumber a long time ago…”
In 2010, Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto talked to   USA Today   about the character’s beginnings of the character’s profession: “With   Donkey Kong, we have this gorilla who grabs this gal and runs away with her and you have to go chase the gorilla down to save the lady. With (1983’s) Mario Bros., we brought in Luigi and a lot of the game was played underground so we made him to fit that setting and, we decided he could be a plumber.”
We don’t know if after 34 years Mario quit, was fired, retired, or decided to put all his energy into avoiding banana peels on the racetrack. #WTF
