Super Mario Sunshine possibly one of the best 3D Mario games ever released, but have you ever wondered what it would look like if it was ported to the Game Boy Advance around the same time as its original GameCube release in 2002?

If you have, don’t be surprised anymore – as a pixel artist known as “huttaburger” on twitter recreated the game’s main island, Delfino Plaza, reimagining how it would look on a 32-bit Nintendo handheld system.

According to the artist, this “port of the GBA” would have been “a bit like a game” on the GameCube, but not quite. At the time, a perfectly mirrored port from a console to a pocket computer would have been unlikely, so it made sense.

The only downside to all this is that there is no real game here. However, if you’re craving some fun in the sun, Nintendo has re-released Super Mario Sunshine on Switch as part of Super Mario 3D All Stars collection in 2020, the only catch is that it was a limited time release so it can no longer be bought online and physical copies may not be available.

The same artist also made various other pixel art based handheld adaptations of the console. Sonic the Hedgehog series and more. In terms of related news, a GBA emulator for Switch online appeared to have been spotted last week, suggesting that the return of GBA games might be around the corner.
