Shigeru Miyamoto appeared in a special April 1st Nintendo Direct to announce that “your favorite Mario games” will be adding a special “movie mode” featuring the voice talents of the Super Mario Bros. Movie cast. Supported games include Luigi’s Mansion 3, Mario Kart 8, and even the original Super Mario Bros. for the NES.
Activating the new “movie mode” will replace the existing voices with movie cast members, or if there are no voices, add them in. Want to hear “Mushroom Kingdom, here we come!” after Mario clears a level in the original Super Mario Bros.? Now you can!
“It’s a whole new way to enjoy the Mario games you know and love,” Miyamoto said.
‘A dream come true’
In a statement released to the media, Pratt expressed his excitement over having his voice appear in the original Super Mario Bros.
“This is a dream come true after spending hours of my life stomping on Koopas,” Pratt said.
Pratt’s appearance alongside a star-studded cast include Seth Rogen and Jack Black sent shockwaves through the gaming industry when it was revealed. Anticipation has only grown since then, to the point that some analysts think it may be the highest grossing movie of 2023.
The Super Mario Bros. Movie releases April 5. As for the Mario DLC featuring their voices, a release date has not yet been revealed.
