Super Mario Bros. 3's final fight gets the first-person treatment

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

Brandon Laatsch's "First-Person Mario: Endgame" re-imagines key moments from the final world of NES classic Super Mario Bros. 3 from Mario's point of view, illustrating just how tough it would be to take down Bowser's tank force.

The video concludes with a first-person peek at the inside of Bowser's castle, with a little third-person cinematic flair right before Mario rescues Princess Peach.

Endgame, which required 50 hours of rendering time, according the video's YouTube description, is the sequel to Laatsch's original First-Person Mario video, released in 2011. Laatsch is part of the creative force behind FreddieW's YouTube channel and Rocket Jump, the video team responsible for Video Game High School.
