A Japanese violinist has shot to fame after posting videos of himself playing the violin to classic Nintendo games.

Rather than simply playing the theme tune, Teppei Okada plays the sound to 'live' games including the sounds of things like jumps and power-ups.

Okada has videoed himself playing other classic games tunes such as Donkey Kong, Yoshi's Cookie and Dragon Quest 4 -- all while wearing a classy (and very white) suit.

The 34-year-old classically trained musician also offers lesson to other game/music fans, which makes us wish we could play the violin.
