I know Mario games used to have a beach, but back then…Mario Sunshine especially – they were about work, or quests, and quests are work. This series of illustrations by Leo Scherel instead imagines what it would be like if the brothers (and friends) could take a well deserved vacation.
You know how in Japanese games like Persona, the team always manages to sneak in in the middle of an adventure vacation, everyone puts on their swimsuits, heads to the beach, and has some slapstick fun? Yeah, imagine Bowser just getting really nervous about the salt water.
