Super Mario has never looked better

Watch the creator of Super Mario Run sketch art from the game on an iPad.

Shigeru Miyamoto is well known in the gaming industry for creating some of the most popular video games of all time, including the Super Mario franchise.

Super Mario Run, Nintendo's first foray into smartphone gaming, seems to be another smash hit, beating Pokemon Go for downloads in the first 24 hours. I've played through several of the levels already and love it.

Earlier today I was checking out various articles about the game, and I came across something really cool. Miyamoto did a sketch of Super Mario Run art on an iPad, and you can watch in this video posted Thursday.

As I watched the sketched lines and colors come together, it made me wonder if he'll ever make a game with his unique art style instead of the 3D models we get in most games today.
