It feels like yesterday when Shigeru Miyamoto pulled out the goomba mat under our collective gamer asses with the surprise announcement of the bizarre Hollywood cast of the upcoming Super Mario Bros. film. While the cast of Chris Pratt in the lead role horrified a lotit served as inspiration for a visual artist to reimagine the Mushroom Kingdom with his own Pratt-like-Mario goes crazy.

First spotted by Eurogamera YouTuber named Games reinvented uploaded a video of the original Super Mario Bros. to be redone using the Unreal engine. To give the trailer a bit more validity, Re-Imagined Games used an AI voice bot mimicking the Honest Trailer voice-over guy, John Bailey, to narrate the trailer. If you want to know how Re-Imagined Games, uh, reimagined Super Mario Bros. with Pratt, you’re in luck because the only other videos on their YouTube channel have a behind-the-scenes look at the creation. Nintendo, hire this guy indeed.

When it comes to gameplay, Re-Imagined Games has done a great job of reimagining all the bells and whistles that make a Super Mario Bros.. game, but with the realistic textures of the Unreal Engine. You’ve got your hyper-realistic giant turtle goombas, floating mystery boxes, glittery coins, and the iconic pipe tunnels. The only thing missing is a chimerical monstrosity of Jack Black’s body Animorph in the bowsuh. Thank goodness it only exists in the trailer as a sentient yellow block.

Instead of cowering in fear like the rest of us, Re-Imagined Games said they’re excited for the upcoming animated film. In fact, the announcement of the film gave the impetus for digital artist to learn how to make video games using Unreal Engine because they really wanted to see what it would be like if Pratt, Charlie Day, Anya Taylor-Joy, Keegan-Michael Key and Jack Black were wandering in a realistic mushroom kingdom. Respect.

“With no game development experience, I’m learning an unreal engine from scratch and picking up all the other skills I can along the way, with the goal of making it a legitimately awesome action game” , said Re-Imagined Games in the description of the video. .

If you weren’t emotionally scarreded to watch this fan made trailer and think you have enough in the tank for a quick update on the status of the actual trailer for the next one Super Mario Bros. movie, get ready. I’ll give you a second to recover though. No one should be subject to as much Chris Pratt In one time. All okay, that was long enough. Land let’s continue.
