Mario is Unreal (4)!

Mario is Unreal (4)!


Watch a detailed Mario run around, collect stars and explore highly detailed locations in what would probably be a dream for any Nintendo fan. Could this be the future of Mario games?

A collection of modders have taken the 3D engine known as Unreal 4 and created a video of what Mario could possibly look like if Nintendo provided a console powerful enough.

Unreal 4, as the number suggests, is the fourth iteration of the 3D engine that allows for realistic games on PC’s and gaming consoles. The first engine was created for the purpose of creating 3D environments for the multiplayer game ‘Unreal’. The latest version has been used to create more games than I can list here!

As you can see in the video below, not only is the Unreal 4 engine a powerful piece of software, but in the right hands it can make great games. Obviously Mario doesn’t look right in every environment in the video but you get the idea.
