According to the Japanese Nintendo Website, Mario is no longer the loveable Italian plumber we all knew him as. All the characters have bios on the site and Mario's is now;
But because you probably can't translate it yourself...I have for you..
"All around sporty, whether it's tennis or baseball, soccer or car racing, [Mario] does everything cool. As a matter of fact, he also seems to have worked as a plumber a long time ago…"
He keeps busy saving Princess Peach and saving the Mushroom Kingdom now and less time cleaning critters out of pipes in recent games which probably sparked the change. However, not all fans are taking the news well.

Mario is not a plumber anymore? Wtf? What about all the heavily-plumbing-based gameplay?— Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) September 5, 2017
Imagine if Mario was your actual plumber though. Come back from making him a cup of tea and find him jumping on your pet tortoise. Liability— Joe (@steamedhamms) September 4, 2017
