Fortnite has been animated to look like a side-scrolling 8-bit arcade game and the result makes us hope Epic Games sees it and gets some inspiration.

Esports organization Sentinels posted this video on Twitter showing they're not just org with teams across games, but have a bit of a creative side too. The video, shown below, features a Fortnite building, character, and shotgun converted into the classic 8-bit style with some retro music accompanying the side-scrolling shooter.

Moments in the clip give nods to Mario with the Mario jump, level up, and death sound effects showing up a few moments. The game ends with the infamous "Game Over" and the player falling to his death. The replies to the tweet and a post of this clip of Reddit sounds like a lot of fans think this should become a spin-off game and hope Epic Games puts some resources into making this happen.

Will it? Probably not, but fans can dream while they patiently wait for Chapter 2 Season 3 to come out after a few delays.
