8 Realistic Versions of Nintendo Characters: A Visual Transformation


Nintendo’s eagerly awaited next console has sparked interest in leveraging a technological and graphical leap. Who wouldn’t love to see BigN’s iconic characters with even more realistic features? This question was posed by a Reddit user known as Harry-Twotter. Consequently, he utilized the Midjourney artificial intelligence to envision what Mario, Link, Peach, Bowser, and Yoshi would look like if Nintendo employed Unreal Engine 5.

Nintendo’s Characters Mature Further

Harry-Twotter has offered us a glimpse into the potential future of video games on Nintendo’s upcoming console. By using AI to apply a graphic style reminiscent of Unreal Engine 5 to the characters of the Japanese firm, he has created images that portray Mario, Link, Peach, Bowser, and other characters in a more adult and less childish manner.

These representations are, of course, fictitious. Nevertheless, they have generated enthusiasm and anticipation among players. It is important to remember that these images are the product of a fan’s imagination and enthusiasm for the Nintendo universe.

We are eagerly awaiting the reveal of the Nintendo Switch 2, or whatever its name might be, and we can only hope that Nintendo will surprise us with a significant boost in graphics. One thing is certain: we should expect an improvement worthy of the name.

While we have recently seen these characters in a realistic version thanks to Unreal Engine 5, another internet user has had fun turning our favorite characters into criminals. Included are Luigi, Donkey Kong, Link, as well as Yoshi, Kirby, Star Fox, and even Princess Zelda.

With generative artificial intelligence like Midjourney, one can create unexpected images as well as transform and merge licenses without any artistic skills. This is because these images are generated by an AI using prompts or descriptive phrases. However, the results do not always meet our expectations. Here is a selection of completely failed images that are sure to make you laugh or cry.
