Remember when the Game of Thrones intro was reimagined with Skyrim? Yeah, it was a fantasy nerd’s dream come true and I honestly didn’t think anything could out-nerd that. That is, until now.

Feast your eyes (and ears) on a chiptune version of the Game of Thrones intro set to Super Mario World, thanks to YouTube member NicksplosionFX. It’s absolutely brilliant.

Dun, dun, bada, dun, dun along to the video below:

Not only does the video reimagine the theme song 8-bit by 8-bit, the Super Mario reimagining lines up perfectly with Game of Thrones’ opening sequence. In fact, you can actually watch a side-by-side comparison of the original and the chiptuned version here that will blow your mind. My favorite bits are the reimagining of Winterfell’s famous weirwood tree and the Donkey Kong and Yoshi images that appear on the swords.

    Not nearly as good as the Skyrim one.

  2. Carrie Keith says:

    Maybe not a game, but seeing Middle Earth? Or has that already been done?

  3. Jusitn says:

    If any game would’ve started like this, I would’ve been instantly hooked.

    cool idea, but as a nerd and longtime gamer, I hate how people get 8-bit mixed up with 16-bit in their internet memes.  The SNES had much better sound capabilities than this.
