The limited technolgy of the 1980s prevented video game characters from truly coming to life in ways that we take for granted today. For instance, today's modern characters have clacking footsteps and grunt when they jump. They scream when they fall and they chew food with gusto. What would happen if a beloved game from twenty-some years ago was given a modern sound makeover? Well, I think it would go a little something like this. Virtjk has taken the lifelike sounds of today's foley artists and backported them into Nintendo's classic 1985 hit, Super Mario Bros. for the Nintendo Entertainment System. The end result is a thing of twenty-first century wonder. Next week: Mushroom Kingdom sepia tone.
