We’ve all heard hard critics’ opinions on the impressionistic graphics of Skyward Sword. There’s one issue that most people seem to have with it: just how bright and happy everything looks. A youtuber named SUPERMARIOBROTHERS13 found a way to fix that and show us using some simple photo manipulation what a darker, more ominous Skyward Sword might look like.

We hope that Nintendo actually decides to do something like this with the graphics, because if they don’t, the terrifying dungeons will seem more like a flower garden than a volcanic crater. We’ve already seen evidence in the latest batch of Skyward Sword screenshots that this could be happening, as the color palette seemed dulled down from the E3 2010 batch. Could they take it further? Let us know what you think in the comments!
