A glimpse at first-person Mario. Is this a possibility?
The latest upload by freddiew reveals what a Mario game might look like from a first-person point of view, and with realistic graphics.
Awesomeness aside, could this be what Nintendo has up its sleeve for the next 3D Mario title? On the Wii U, the Gamepad screen could display the stage from a side-scrolling perspective, while on the TV viewers can see the action from the eyes of Mario himself.
I know, the concept is unlikely to be realised, but the animation is an epic one to say the least; and it gives us a solid impression of how a first-person view could make an age-old, 2D game appear entirely unique.
Nintendo always aims to bring something new to the table with each iteration of their beloved plumber. So, if it’s not a complete change of perspective, what other dynamics do you think Nintendo will present to us at this year’s E3? And what graphical style do you think would best suit an FPS Mario? Let us know in the comments!
