Mr. Miyamoto answers questions about our favorite hero to promote Super Mario Maker

Nintendo UK shared a video on Twitter and YouTube featuring Shigeru Miyamoto answering long-pondered fan questions about Mario and the Mushroom Kingdom as a promotional trailer for Super Mario Maker, which makes its debut today on the Wii U.

In the video, Miyamoto tackles the serious issues like whether Mario is hitting blocks with his head or his fist and what happens to Bob-ombs when they cease to exist. Perhaps the most interesting answer, though, is Miyamoto’s response to the question of who mothered Bowser Jr.

We won’t spoil it, but we will say this: It’s a little awkward. Find out for yourself in the video below and be sure to check out Super Mario Maker.
