Last month, we reported on a beautifully rendered fan remake of Nintendo Wii 3D platforming classic Super Mario Galaxy (if it can be called a classic after only eight years. Ah, of course it can – it’s brilliant) recreated in Epic’s Unreal Engine 4. Now, its creator, CryZENx, has uploaded a new video of his creation to YouTube showing off Mario’s wall-jumping ability, as well as some stunning graphics.
Super Mario Galaxy is one of Nintendo’s best-selling games of all time, having shifted 12.22 million copies by March 2014, and was met with critical acclaim, holding a laudable 97 out of 100 score on Metacritic.
Sadly, we’ve already seen a similar project, a fan remake of Super Mario 64 created in Unity, taken down. The remake was made available as an in-browser game, but Nintendo hit the game’s host, Cloudflare, with a copyright infringement notice. I fear that should this remarkable Super Mario Galaxy remake be made publicly available, it may meet a similar fate. However, “other means” are always available.
Thank you Dark Side of Gaming for providing us with this information.
