Brawl Update: Mushroomy Kingdom

Today’s Brawl update gave us a new piano remix of a classic theme by the man himself: Koji Kondo.

And to go along with that delightful mix was a wonderful stage to match: The Mushroomy Kingdom.

 

Not quite like you remember it, is it?

This reimagining of an old favorite scrolls horizontally through the aged and timeless level design of World 1-1 from Super Mario Bros.

It’s been quite a while since you’ve been here, hasn’t it?  Brings back the memories, eh?

This epic battlefield of retro goodness gives us a different take on retro with its gritty, realistic design. I love it, personally, because it goes against conventions to give us what we wouldn’t expect from a Mario level and in return inspires fond memories while also reminding us that all things change with time.

Also, once in a while, you’ll get a surprise and play an alternate version of the level:

World 1-2. Pretty sweet bonus, eh?

  1. What I want to know is, in the last screenshot, what happens if Mario DOESN’T slide all the way under the blocks? 😛
