Super Mario 3D Land Launch Event: Time Lapse Video
Get a bird's eye view of what it took to turn Times Square into a stage from Mario's critically acclaimed adventure.
This past Saturday, Nintendo held a Super Mario 3D Land event in New York City that attracted thousands, and for good reason. The publisher transformed a small strip of land called Military Island into a level from the game, then invited fans to run through this multi-colored obstacle course. Even Jon Bon Jovi showed up.
The amount of work that goes into such a grand undertaking never ceases to amaze. It literally took hours to put this thing together.
Thankfully, you can see how it all went down in a matter of minutes, thanks to the supreme power of fast forwarding. Enjoy.
