Modding communities certainly like to do weird things with video games. It has not even been one week since its announcement, and Super Mario Odyssey‘s reveal trailer has already been reasonably accurately recreated within the confines of Liberty City in Grand Theft Auto IV. Okay, maybe accurate is the wrong word to use for what YouTuber CrowbCat has created, but it is definitely a pretty entertaining video to watch regardless of that fact.
CrowbCat has turned Grand Theft Auto protagonist Niko Bellic into a back-flipping, wall climbing, spitting image of the block-smashing plumber himself using only three mods. The mods in question include Super Mario Skins, Real Parkour Animations, and iCEnhancer. Super Mario Skins does pretty much what you would expect, while Real Parkour Animations allows Niko to perform the death-defying leaps that the intrepid Mario demonstrates in his latest adventure. iCEnhancer is just a simple graphics mod that helps make the game look a little more modern.
