Remember Super Mario 64? It’s a 1996 platform video game published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64 and one of the launch titles for the console. Well, we hear that it’s back! The game, of course, not the console.
And the best part it, it’s making a comeback right in your browser.
Yes, 20 whole years after it first launched on the Nintendo 64.
Developed by ingenious Unity developer Erik Roystan Ross, it’s called “Super Mario 64 HD” and it features the original game’s first level, “Bob-Omb Battlefield”. The computer science student said that he decided to remake it while he was experimenting with the Unity game engine and as it turned out, the results proved to be impressive. We haven’t played it ourselves but The Verge wrote that the game looks almost as good as more recent games in the series such as “Super Mario 3D World” on the Wii U.
When asked if he was going to work on the rest of the “Super Mario 64″ levels as well, Ross said,”I currently do not have any plans to develop this any further or to resolve any bugs, unless they’re horrendously game-breaking and horrendously simple to fix.”
For now, the “Bob-Omb Battlefield” level is available for download or playable right in your browser. But we won’t be held responsible for the lack of productivity 😉
Happy fighting Monday blues, peeps!
