    The post-credit scene of Super Mario Bros hinted at a sequel to expand the video game-adapted franchise. The credit scene heads the brothers back into Brooklyn underground where Mario and Luigi’s first discovered the pipeworks which led to the Mushroom Kingdom. A familiar object: a Yoshi egg is seen getting hatched. And as the film cuts the Yoshi cry is heard.

    Now that Yoshi is let loose in the streets of Brooklyn the Mario brothers are in for an adventure. It might be a setup for the future sequel with Mario, Toad, and Peach tracking down the dinosaur on the run. However, Illumination and Nintendo have big plans for Mario and Luigni’s next adventure, which hopefully might be around Yoshi.
