You might not realize it while you’re watching Game of Thrones, but there’s another historical fantasy epic that’s been unfolding for decades on TV sets all over the world: The Super Mario saga. YouTube user Nicksplosion FX has made an explicit connection between the two, re-imagining the Game of Thrones title sequence Nintendo-style.
The Game of Thrones theme song is also given the 8-bit treatment, and its pretty fun to imagine the adventures inside the Mushroom Kingdom being given the kind of weight and drama that the characters on Game of Thrones do – I would definitely watch this show.
