ROM Hack Gives Us Mario 64 Sequel We’ve Been Waiting For
Peter Donnell / 4 years ago
Mario 64 is one of the most iconic games ever to grace our screens and one of the strongest releases in the Nintendo history books. Even after 20-years, the game is just as enjoyable to play today as it was when it was originally released. Of course, many people wanted a sequel, but Nintendo shifted gears on the type of Mario game they were making and it never really happened.
Now talented game modder Kaze Emanuar has spent the last three years ripping the Super Mario 64 game apart and built a completely new Mario 64 game within the shell of the original! Having already created Super Donkey Kong 64, Super Mario Run 64, and now the truly epic Last Impact, Kaze certainly knows his way around making a great Mario game, so you’ll want to check out the new one for sure.
“I was thinking of making another ROM hack with more Mario-esque visuals that would play like a mixture of Paper Mario, Ocarina of Time and Mario 64. It would be a platformer set in a huge, open world with multiple unlockable characters and badges, that you need to fulfill a bunch of different quests or to beat dungeons. The dungeons would mostly build on platforming, but also on puzzles to a small part.” said Kaze in an interview with PCGamer.
