Fact or Fiction?

The Nintendo iconic character of Mario was named after Nintendo's warehouse landlord.

Mario originally appeared in the 1981 arcade version of Donkey Kong under the name of "Jumpman" when the game was being localized for Nintendo's American Audience. The employees of Nintendo decided to rename "Jumpman" after Mario Segale, the landlord of the Nintendo Warehouse. Apparently, Nintendo Founder and First President,
Minoru Arakawa and Segale got into a heated debate over past due rent. When Arakawa finally convinced Segale that he would be paid, the employees decided to rename "Jumpman" to "Mario."
