Mario 64 Fan Recreates Game with Unreal Engine
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
YouTuber aryoksini has used the Unreal Engine 4 and assets from the Unreal marketplace to recreate parts of the fan-favorite Mario 64 platformer. The video, which has reached almost 2.5 million views, shows environments from the game in various art styles from realistic to whimsical. The famous plumber wanders in snowy mountains, dank basements, and even a realistic living room.
The trade-off of substituting the usually bright and cheery environments for more realistic castle interiors means losing a lot of what makes a Mario game. What do you guys think? Would you like to see a more realistic Mario platformer like what's seen in aryosini's video? Let us know in the forums.
