2D video games invade the real world

A YouTube video created by pipocaVFX showcases some famous gaming characters within our world.

Have you ever wondered what Donkey Kong, Mortal Kombat, Pokemon, or even Mario would look like in the real world? Well, in a new video created by Filipe Costa of pipocaVFX, they've transported all of those games and more into real life.

The 2D sprites are blended in with the real life backgrounds seamlessly. You'll see Godzilla walking the streets, Mario (Jumpman) climbing a building to rescue Pauline (Lady), and Sonic collecting rings across lush green fields.

Take a look at the pixelated characters as they make themselves at home on Earth. Thanks, Kotaku.

Rather handily there's also a list of games and times they appear in the video, just in case you're a little confused as to who's who.
