Mario and Luigi just got badass with Mario Warfare

Mario Warfare is a new web series by Beat Down Boogie that gives the classic Super Mario Brothers video game a tough and fun live-action military spin. In episode one they give us a small taste of the badass action in store. Beat Down Boogie has filmed the first two episodes, but want to create more to expand the story. And so do we. With artwork this, how couldn’t we?

A bit of plot: Bowser’s airships rain destruction on the Mushroom Kingdom. The King is missing and presumed dead. Princess Peach is on the run. A couple plumbers answer the call of duty and sign up to fight. Now Mario, Luigi (and a team of old school video game characters) are thrown into the gritty new world of first person shooters like COD and Battlefield.

From the makers: “Imagine Super Mario Brothers meets Blackhawk Down with a healthy dose of humor. That’s our new web series, Mario Warfare! It’s a loving parody of classic video games and epic action-films.” Watch below:

If you want to help more episode get made they have started a fundraising campaign on Kickstarter to help complete the series in 2013.

UPDATE: Part 2 is available to watch now.
