Unreleased concept art and gameplay images of a Guillerm del Toro-directed game about Super Mario Bros. from a developer at Unkrich Games have been published on the website for Guillero del Toro’s upcoming animated film, Super Mario Run.
The screenshots show a game about a “super-powered, super-spooky” boy named Mario who must “find the keys” to unlock the hidden Super Mario worlds.
The image below is a screenshot of a post on Unkrgos Twitter account of a screenshot from an Unkrand article with the title “Unkrand’s exclusive, first look at Super Mario run,” which shows a poster of a poster featuring the game’s art.
In the screenshot, the poster shows Mario and his friends on the moon, with an orange cloud behind them.
The poster, which was shared on Twitter by Guillaume Dali’s Unkrrenges, describes the game as a “classic story of exploration and adventure, with classic gameplay.”
Dali has been credited as a programmer on the project.
The Unkran Games page describes Super Mariorun as a visual novel game about “superpowered,super-spooky” Mario, and describes the film as “a tale of discovery, exploration and friendship.”
Unkrhgos is one of three companies that have been working on the film.
The others are Super Mario Studios, a development studio based in New York, and Ubisoft, the French video game developer.
The first trailer for the film was shown at the Cannes Film Festival in May, which drew critical acclaim and helped launch the Guillermon film.
A trailer for Super MarioRun, released in August, showed a “bunch of kids” playing a “Super Mario-themed adventure game” and described it as “inspired by the games of the 90s, like the ones in the Mario games series.”
