Game of Thrones Intro Gets Super Mario World 16-Bit Treatment

Game of Thrones Intro Gets Super Mario World 16-Bit Treatment

A fan-made video shows us how Game of Thrones' intro looks like using Super Mario World sprites and it even has the intro score done in 8-bit.

If you're a video game fan and love HBO's Game of Thrones TV series, then this might be the most awesome thing you'll see the entire day. YouTube user NicksplosionFX has released a video wherein he recreates Game of Thrones' intro using Nintendo's Super Mario World for the SNES (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) sprites, stages and more. If that wasn't enough, even the song's iconic intro score has also been recreated using 8-bit blips and bloops.

NicksplosionFX has also uploaded a side-by-side video that showcases the original Games of Thrones TV intro with that of his creation. And yes, it's a pretty accurate remake and even made more impressive given he was limited to Super Mario World assets.

I think it would be more accurate to say that Super Mario World has gotten the Game of Thrones intro treatment.

I personally find the recreation with Skyrim theme more impressive:

But the SMW Version ain't bad, either.

My favorite version is the one where the intro theme is sung by goats (and a sheep or two)

Not nearly as good visually but I still have a fondess for the South Park version.

No offense to Shigeru, but I don't think he's got the skills to write something Game of Thrones-like. If he tried the plot would probably be:

"Tyrion! I am Princess Daenerys! You are someone I have never met, but please help!"

And then Tyrion spends the next thirty years rescuing her from Ned Stark for some reason.

Of course it has because for some stupid reason internet nerds always try and connect everything to Mario.

Whenever I hear the Game of Throne theme anymore I can't help but think of the one on Youtube with lyrics. "Fucking Game of Thrones! Fucking Game of Thrones! Fucking Game of Thrones!"

I've never watched Game of Thrones. Does it actually have castles rising out of the ground? In any case that looks awesome?

Well, just the intro has castles rising from the ground :P

This is the original intro it's parodying:
