Does anyone know if this is a famous font?

I would really like to know the name of it.

8-bit type in the age of 8-bit video games wasn't the same type of font files that you'd be using today on your average computer. They were instead bitmap files used within the game itself. I doubt Nintendo ever created actual font files for these and distributed them, but odds are that there are more than a few clones of this out there done by hobbyists (or even pros). Search for 'Nintendo' and 'bitmap' on the font sites out there.

It turned out that I found a font I like a lot more =) – Sandra Schlichting Dec 28 '11 at 23:10
This is a Mario spoof from not too long ago. So this was not made by Nintendo. (See how PETA whines about Mario being 'evil' ) – poepje Jun 14 '12 at 18:40
