Watch Nintendo’s famous mascot traverse UE4-powered HD environments

Video: Mario jumps into Unreal Engine 4

3D artist Aryok Pinera has dropped a fully animated 3D Mario into Unreal Engine 4.

The HD environment assets were all taken from the Unreal Marketplace, and include areas from Epic’s Elemental and Matinee Fight Scene tech demos.

All the character actions were scripted in Blueprints, with all animations re-created from scratch by Pinera.

Since the video went live just two days ago, it has already been viewed more than one million times. Given how protective Nintendo is of its IP however, there’s a chance the video could be taken down soon.

To view it whilst it’s live, you can watch the video below.
