Last month, Funkyzeit Games shared a video, showcasing what a modern-day 3D Mario game could have looked like in Unreal Engine 5.
By using the new rendering techniques of Unreal Engine 5, Funkyzeit Games has basically recreated the first map of Super Mario Bros. However, and contrary to other remakes, this one lets Mario explore the environment. Not only that, but there are some cool physics/destruction sequences.
The end result is nowhere near the cartoony graphics of the Mario games. While this fan project manages to retain its art style, it looks more like an early 90s CG Mario game.
Anyway, I personally find it cool. Yes, this demo is rough around the edges and needs more polish. However, it’s better than your usual “UE5 fan remakes“.
Speaking of Unreal Engine 5, we also suggest taking a look at the following videos. Right now, you can download a Superman UE5 Demo, a Halo 3: ODST Remake, and a Spider-Man UE 5 Demo. Moreover, these videos show Resident Evil, Star Wars KOTOR and Counter-Strike Global Offensive in UE5. Additionally, you can find a Portal Remake and an NFS3 Remake. And finally, here is a Half Life 2 Fan Remake, an Oblivion fan remake, a World of Warcraft remake, a Skyrim remake, a Grand Theft Auto San Andreas Remake, a Doom 3 Remake, and a Zelda Ocarina of Time UE5 Remake, a God of War Remake and a GTA IV Remake

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the “The Evolution of PC graphics cards.”
