NOTE: This chronology it's just a theory, don't take to seriously.
This is a translated version of a post by Locky on his brazilian gaming blog. It also a better version of an IP's chronology. It only has canon games. Before we start, let me show some of my theories:
- The characters which Mario and Luigi meets on the games, can be based on characters which they meet on the real life. Like a example Pauline and Peach. This explain why those characters doesn't appear together on a game.
- Some games can take place at the Mushroom Kingdom or in the real life, one example of a game which takes in the real life is Donkey Kong, which takes place in a destroyed circus.
The Yoshi's Island
