I think we’ve all dreamed of what a Nintendo game would look like if it ever got the PC treatment, fear not Nintendo fans as someone has put Mario in the latest unreal engine and oh boy does it look good, 3D artist Aryok Pinera has given us a glimpse of what a PC Nintendo game could look like by inserting the mushroom eating plumber unto Unreal Engine 4.
As you can see the entire thing looks damn right stunning all the environments are taken from the unreal marketplace, Mario’s animations were scripted using blueprints only and his animations were recreated from scratch as well as the PBR ready textures.
As mentioned in the unreal engine 4 post this engine has shown to be rather impressive this further shows the potential of the engine and more importantly that a Mario game using this engine would definitely look fun to play and good eye candy. while that being said the hyper-realistic visuals look great they may not suit the cartoon style of Mario it does look great, but we can only imagine how it could look if Nintendos own artists were to work on these types of high-level visuals.
Do you think a Mario game with a photo-realistic look would be fun?.
Thank you PCGamesN for providing us with this information.
An Unreal Engine forum member ‘koola’ has uploaded two screenshots from his latest project, the two images look incredibly mind-blowing most photo realistic we have seen to date, this is a very good show of visual quality that will be found in games in the close future.
Koola has previously delivered some über realistic real-time architectural visualization using the unreal engine 4. taking advantages that unreal can offer such as accessibility and power, the results of his work have wowed his colleagues and garnered attention the international press and also the Unreal Team themselves at epic. earlier this year Koola became the very first recipient of the inaugural innovative project designed in Unreal Engine 4.
Another notable project that will be using Unreal Engine 4 is the gorgeous abstention, a new survival horror tittle that will take inspiration from horror greats such as the resident evil series and Eternal Darkness and silent hill, Fan can expect a real mix of mental and horror elements with intense gameplay. An acclaimed game development studio Dontnod and the publisher Focus home Interactive announced Vampyr a new role-playing game powered by the Unreal engine 4, the game is set to release on play station 4, Xbox one and the PC.
Developers are always pushing the boundaries with the photo-realism with video games and this is definitely pushing the thresholds of true photorealistic visuals in a game engine.
Do you look forward to playing video games using the Unreal Engine 4?
