Super Mario Sunshine is arguably one of the best 3D Mario games ever released, but have you ever wondered what it would look like if ported to the Game Boy Advance around the same time as its original GameCube release in 2002? ?

If you have, wonder no more – known as a pixel artist ‘huttaburger’ on Twitter recreated the game’s main island, Delfino Plaza, and reimagined how it might have looked on Nintendo’s 32-bit handheld system.

According to the artist, this “GBA port” would have been “a bit like the game” on GameCube, but not quite. Back then, a perfectly mirrored console-to-handheld port would have been unlikely, so it makes sense.

The only downside to all of this is that there is no actual game here. If you’re craving some fun in the sun, Nintendo has re-released Super Mario Sunshine on the Switch as part of the Super Mario 3D All Stars Collection in 2020, the only catch is that this is a limited time release so it is no longer available on the eShop and physical copies may no longer be readily available.

The same artist has also made various other console-to-handheld pixel art adaptations based on Sonic the Hedgehog series and more. In somewhat related news, a GBA emulator for Switch was apparently spotted online last week, suggesting the return of GBA titles might not be far off.
