Super Mario Knock-Off has been discovered on the Xbox Store

In the days of digital releases, copycat games can sometimes creep through the gaps and end up in storefronts. This was the case recently on the Microsoft Store, when a fake Mario game was made available for Xbox platforms. titled Supertan Marioner 3D Infinity World AdventureThe game was an endless runner using a 3D model of Mario similar to the one used in it New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe. This is where the similarities begin and end, as the game features general backgrounds and a complete lack of music; There was no Mario series audio, or even public domain tracks, for that matter!

It seems that Xbox quickly realized the existence of the game, like Supertan Marioner 3D Infinity World Adventure It has now been removed, and Store Page Nothing brings. Streamer NodaIE was able to buy the game before this happened (at €4), and caught a video of the replica in action. There are some fun things to see in the video, and they can be found embedded below.

Replicas like these popups quite often, with the aim of scamming a few dollars from players who may not know any better. Microsoft and Nintendo have developed a fairly strong relationship over the past few years, but it’s probably a safe bet that we won’t be seeing an official Mario game on Xbox anytime in the near future! However, some casual players may not know it, and spend money without thinking twice.

Interestingly enough, a similar Animal Crossing game was released on the Microsoft Store last year. The game was given the exact same name as Animal Crossing: New Horizonsbut featured a similar gameplay to Crossy Road, While that. Given the massive interest Animal Crossing has seen on the Nintendo Switch, it makes sense that scammers would use its success to try to deceive some Xbox owners. Fortunately, the Microsoft Store seems to be pretty quick to remove these games!
