What would happen if you took Mario out of his cartoony home and put him into a life-like world? We’ve seen glimpses of Mario running through a realistic castle, and now there’s this. 

YouTube channel CryZENx has dropped Mario into the Unreal Engine 4 Kite demo, and the results are cool but jarring.

Obviously this is just a proof of concept. Even if Nintendo were to get Unreal Engine support for its next console, currently codenamed the NX, any Mario-focused game would be more whimsical.

If you still aren’t satisfied with Unreal Engine Mario tech demo’s, CryZENx has uploaded another video showing the iconic plumber running around the NVIDIA Flex physics tech demo.
