31 Years of Power-Ups by TheBourgyman 31 Years of Power-Ups by TheBourgyman
Edit (2013-06-29): made an addition to the picture. Can you spot it? ;)

--

And now, another submission in the "20-30-something Years of" series, this time featuring all power-ups, forms and power-granting items Mario could benefit from in the last 30 years! It even includes some power-ups from yet-to-be-released games. Can you name them all? Hit the Download Image button at your right to view full-size, or just click the picture to enlarge!


I'm not that satisfied of how the composition turned out, but hey everything can't be rainbows and puppies all the time. I'll be having some of those at the Otakuthon convention I'm attenting in Montreal next week, so come and see me to get your copy! There might also be an alternate version with a certain other mustachioed character in it. ;)


35+ hours in Paint Tool SAI and Photoshop CS4. Watermarked to avoid unauthorized printing and selling of my stuff (it happened frequently in the past).


Mario and Bowser belong to the big N!

I think it was Cat Mario but I'm not sure, it's been a few years ago...

Pretty sure it's Cat Mario, considering the date you first posted this picture.

Or it was to separate groups working on the game. Notice how after the release of NSMBW, the Galaxy team quietly removed their Ice Mario from Galaxy 2. I've taken to calling the Galaxy version "Crystal" Mario.

It's the Super Scope, a device for the SNES. It was used in Yoshi's Safari.
