The creator also plans to insert Jack Black as Bowser. At the moment, there is only a placeholder block instead, but it will “probably” be in the next update. Here’s a little more about this project from the creator and YouTube channel Games reimagined:
“I’m making a realistic remake of Super Mario Brothers with Chris Pratt as Mario! This is a gameplay preview of the first four levels.
“I’m a lifelong Nintendo fan and I’m very excited about Illumination and Nintendo’s animated Super Mario Movie! So I decided to do something like a fan project while we are all waiting for the trailer. But then I started to wonder what it would be like if Chris Pratt, Charlie Day, Anya Taylor-Joy, Jack Black and Keegan-Michael Key were actually these characters in a realistic mushroom kingdom. why i’m trying to make this game. With zero game development experience, I’m learning an unrealistic engine from the ground up and picking up any other skills I can along the way to make this legitimately great action game!”
