Super Mario Huddle – A Game That Doesn’t Exist

April 22, 2016, Author: Matt Parker

It might not seem like it but I spend time thinking about exactly what should be posted as ‘news’ on this site. Press releases, trailers, hot-wing challenges – it’s hard to know what to give my attention to. However, today I’ve found a new well to tap – games that don’t even exist.

That’s right. Today I’m going to show you ‘screenshots’ of a game titled Super Mario Huddle. Problem is, they’re not really screenshots at all. They’re just renders that a fan made. If Super Mario Strikers, Mario Golf and Mario Tennis then why not Mario American Football?

As you can see, some serious thought went into these. You’ve got a fully realised UI, characters galore and they even went into detail as to how it’d play.

I can only imagine Bowser would be an amazing center.

“Each Quarterback has a certain Skill, much like in Power Tennis but set up like the super shot in Strikers.

A more cooperative mode would let the second player choose a star character to fill in as the Tight End of the Team, as that position makes for the most varied gameplay.

I would describe the gameplay as a mix between NFL Blitz and the EA Madden Games for Wii.

Arcade style, with no more than the basic rules.”

Going for 3-points. Let's hope a Koopa Paratroopa doesn't get in the way.

So if anyone at Nintendo is reading this please note that I would buy this and you need to make this. Thank you.

      The detail in them’s crazy, right? Doubt Nintendo would go for it though. American Football’s still extremely niche (worldwide) compared to other sports. :’(
