Are you familiar with the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988?...

Should be careful what you sell, especially when the character design does not belong to you.

Thanks for your replies but..
The clothing of a person can have copyright?
And Mario, this is a name..

Why should I have problems with it?
Renaming my game would be a good decision?
I saw there are some android games called Mario on google play with a lot of downloads.

Note, I am not a lawyer so I can't give legal advise...

Look at the Patent act Gibbo posted, you are copying the "likeness" of the character, which is copyright. So, no you may not create a character that looks like mario and is named mario. You could change the name, but you have still copied the "likeness", that is illegal and you could be sued. If you change what the character looks like and keep his name and the name of your game as mario you could be sued, because that is also illegal, since Nintendo created the game called Mario.

Who knows, maybe Nintendo doesn't care if you use the character's likeness, just be aware that you're in a grey area which could cost you a lot of money.

Famous last words.

Even if nothing happens, this is a terrible habit/thought process to get stuck in.

Your game ends up selling 50 million copies and your in the poor house before your 18.

Thing is, they won't care or even notice unless the game gains popularity. That is the grey area the above poster talks about Cheesy
