YouTube user PeekingBoo has managed to complete Super Mario Galaxy with a Dance Dance Revolution dance pad. It’s the latest title he’s finished with the peripheral, with others including Splatoon, Super Mario Maker, and more.

PeekingBoo told Game Informer the following about preparing for Super Mario Galaxy:

“Super Mario Galaxy at the time was notorious for changing the way 3D Mario games were previously played by introducing motion controls, intuitive camera movements and aspect of gravity changes on oddly shaped objects. All of these aspects work well together when coupled with the free movement of a thumb on the analog stick and sitting still in the comfort of a chair, however on a dance pad every one of these gameplay innovations directly work against the player. Moving too much can result in involuntary Wii Remote Shakes, my general body movement makes it hard to point at the screen and I had to resort to strapping the thing to my arm because it proved to be a better solution than holding it in my hand.”
