Geek Shriek: Super Mario Bros.... ZOMBIES!

Yes, it's true I'm afraid. Seems our pudgy, Italian plumber hero Mario and his Mushroom Kingdom roadies have been infected by a nasty stream of 2-4-5 Trioxin courtesy of photographer mrksaari.

Seriously, how kick-ass of a game would that make? A mash-up of Resident Evil-style gameplay with the cast of Super Mario World... think about it. The closest thing we've seen thus far has been Luigi's Mansion. Ugh.

Also on display is this grotesquely appropriate "1-Down Mushroom" (see insert) by a fella called Undead Ed over at DeviantArt. If this is the kind of stuff the chefs are serving up around the Mushroom Kingdom, it's no wonder Mario and his pals are looking so ravenous.

Note to self: Do not eat the shrooms in Mexico... er, Mushroom Kingdom.

    Haha! These are fantastic. And yes, they would make a GREAT game!

    This makes me think of that Robot Chicken episode when The Mario Bros. accidentally get re-directed to Raccoon City. We never get to see what happens but this is what could have taken place. A Mario Bros. Zombie that shoots fireballs = awesome!

    @Geof: Robot Chicken had a Resident Evil/Mario Bros. crossover?! And I missed it?! A fireball-spitting Zombie Mario would be pretty bad-ass... I bet his head would self combust and he'd have to run around like an overweight Ghost Rider.
