Earlier this week, Nintendo withdrew the curtain in the latter half of Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, and the new mode definitely catches the attention of the fans. Bowsers Fury will see Mario and Bowser Jr. forced to cooperate to stop a Kaiju-inspired metamorphosis that has taken control of Bowser. Nintendo released a fantastic work of art by the two characters who stared down at the (much bigger) villain, and a fan decided to take that picture and redo it in the style of Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island. While Nintendo’s original art of confrontation was already amazing, pixel art taking off @GBrothersStudio on Twitter can be even more impressive!
The art from @GBrothersStudio can be found built-in below.

Released in 1995, Yoshi’s Island quickly became one of the most beloved titles on Super Nintendo. The game was very different from the original Super Mario World, but the gorgeous art style made it one of the most distinctive Nintendo games ever. Bowser Jr. was not introduced to the franchise until 2002 Super Mario Sunshine, but the character fits very well with Yoshi’s Island aesthetically, as @GBrothersStudio clearly shows. Yoshi’s Island most talked about lighter places, but the game included some darker places, and @GBrothersStudio channels them well. It’s not the kind of mash-up that most Mario fans expect, but it all looks great!
When displayed on the switch, Bowsers Rage will be offered along with another Mario classic: Super Mario 3D World. Released on the Wii U in 2013, the game has an isometric perspective and levels that can be enjoyed with a single player, or in a group of four. The game lets players choose between Mario, Peach, Toad, Luigi and Rosalina, but last week’s trailer for Bowsers Fury has led to speculation that a sixth playable character may be added to the Nintendo Switch version of the game.
Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury released exclusively on the Nintendo Switch on February 12th. You can check out all of our previous coverage of the game here.
