Will Overton, a former artist for various Nintendo magazines as well as game developer Rare, designed this awesome Breath of the Wild artwork based on the box art for the Game Boy classic, Super Mario Land. In the homage, the characters from Mario are replaced by the cast from Breath of the Wild while managing to keep the fun, artistic style of the original. Compare them below and see how they stack up against each other!
Super Mario Odyssey will headline this year’s E3 presentation from Nintendo, so perhaps it was this announcement that inspired Overton to combine Zelda and Mario. Throughout Overton’s career he has been renowned for his art style, and it’s great to see that his passion for art and Nintendo has not changed. His Facebook page is full of fun designs just like this one. Let’s hope Overton continues to release artwork just like this awesome crossover!
