But is it all just a dream?
YouTuber Distracted Coder has developed a fan-made game based on Super Mario Bros. 2, and partially inspired by the Mario + Rabbids series. Created in only a month, the game is a turn-based strategy title featuring 23 levels and taking 2-3 hours to play through completely. It allows you to play as Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Toad, as you battle Birdo and other enemies.
You can try the game out for yourself at this link. However, if and when Nintendo steps in and gets the game removed, you can still enjoy the making of video embedded above. See below for more details about the game itself.
