You've never seen Mario like this before. Not unless you dreamed he was in a game developed by Epic for the Xbox 360.
This amazing re-interpretation of the humble little plumber is by artist Marat Ars. His humble little friend Yoshi has been replaced by a hulking mecha suit, quaint fireballs switched out with what looks like a giant flamethrower and Princess Peach is looking a lot less wholesome.
This is so absurd, yet so well done that I would actually play this. Not that Nintendo would ever make a game anything like it, but hey, a man can dream.
