Super Mario Bros. and Cyberpunk 2077 have a lot in common

It’s true that Super Mario Bros. and Cyberpunk 2077 do not have any connections as franchises. However, both the projects share a common burden of not living up to the expectations of fans.

Super Mario Bros. miserably failed to be a kid-friendly comedy, and Cyberpunk 2077 released with several disappointing bugs. Furthermore, both the ventures boasted big names that aggravated the surrounding hype.

Hollywood stars like Bob Hoskins and Dennis Hopper starred in Super Mario Bros., but could not entertain the viewers like they usually did. Similarly, Keanu Reeves played Johnny Silverhand in Cyberpunk, only to be later blamed for the game’s failure.

Regardless, Mangerive’s trailer is a delight for fans across both communities. It not only brings back the memories of waiting for CD Projekt RED’s action RPG but depicts Super Mario Bros. in the most intriguing way possible.

CD Projekt RED and Super Mario Bros. also have an opportunity to regain the trust of fans around the world. A plethora of PS4 and Xbox One users are desperately waiting for the developers to improve the game’s performance on the previous-gen consoles. Accordingly, CD Projekt RED claims to be tirelessly working on patches and might make the desired changes soon.

On the flip side, the Super Mario Bros. franchise is all set to release a new movie in 2022. Unlike the first installment, it is an animated Mario movie under the production of Illumination. Considering the success of Despicable Me, it is safe to assume that the upcoming Mario movie is in safe hands.
