So I just happen to come across these images that portrayed an alternative concept of our beloved plumber Mario and princess Peach. No more happy bellied moustache guy with his trustworthy dinosaur Yoshi but a cigar chomping bad ass with a mecha power suit and miss Peach looking less sweety pink. These concepts were created by Marat Ars who worked as an artists on games such as Neverwinter and Saints Row 4.

Nice detail though, the cigar is filled with mushrooms instead of tobacco ;-P.
