Mario and Luigi


 

Mario has been to space, Rainbow Road, and wherever all those pipes lead. Now, thanks to augmented reality, fans have brought him into the real world with a first-person recreation of one of his most classic levels.

Using the Microsoft HoloLens, Abhishek Singh recreated world 1-1 from Super Mario Bros. and shared the experience of playing it in the real-world Central Park through a YouTube video. While countless VR recreations of Mario Bros. levels have been made, what makes Singh’s attempt unique is the HoloLens’ technology that allows him to turn the park walk into the world of Mario using only the headset, instead of playing stationary in a virtually made environment with a controller.

The gameplay itself is short, granted the original level doesn’t take long to get through either. Once the real-world park stretch gets Mariofied, Singh begins to slowly jump on Goomba heads, break overhead bricks, and even gain a fire flower to start throwing flames toward the enemies. Sadly, the high pipes and large staircases are not something he can jump over or climb, so most of the platforming portions are walked around.

Currently, HoloLens is only available to developers, with no known release window for consumers. For now, enjoy the creative recreations of video game levels through video, starting with Singh’s, seen below.

Super Mario Bros. on HoloLens is a look at the future of AR gaming

The first thing to be done with Hololens should be playing a Mario level, and by golly someone did it.
