Super Mario Galaxy Unreal Engine 4 Project Gets New Video

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.

2015 seems to be the year for stunning HD fan remakes, with the recent reveal of Game time’s beautiful recreation of BioShock’s intro, rebuilt from the ground up using CryEngine 3.

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.
