Get Excited for Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS By Checking Out This Awesome Fan-Made Trailer

Unofficial trailer puts Mario in real-world Tokyo.

With the release of the new Super Smash Bros. game for Wii U and 3DS not that far away (just a few months to go), we're expecting Nintendo to ramp up advertising for the game soon. But one fan has already created his own video to promote the game, and it's quite impressive.

Dean Wright this week published a minute-long trailer for the new Super Smash Bros. game, showing Mario making his way through real-world Tokyo to get to a tournament on time. The video begins with Mario in a plumbing supplies store (where else?!), and then sees him zipping through the city (and catching a nap on the subway) before making it to his destination.

The video went live this week and has already racked up more than 250,000 views. "I had a lot of fun making this fan trailer over the past month in Tokyo," Wright wrote. "So I hope you enjoy it too." He added that he plans to release a "making-of" video for the project next week.

Super Smash Bros. launches October 3 for 3DS, with the Wii U version to follow sometime in the winter. During a recent video presentation, Nintendo confirmed three new characters for the game: Lucina, Robin, and Captain Falcon.

Very awesome, better late than never I guess.

Pretty cool.  It would have been difficult to get right, but if they had people in the crowds reacting to Mario it would've been a nice touch.  Part of that difficulty would be other random people wondering what the heck that person is doing and possibly reacting to their acting :).

I guess Mewtwo fell asleep on the train too.
