first_img Super Mario 64 First Person Mod is a Thing of Pure HorrorSuper Mario 64 is Now Playable Online Thanks to Modders Stay on target Super Mario 64 may be 20 years old but that doesn’t mean that this classic can’t get a new lease on life. An ambitious new mod called Super Mario 64: Last Impact has just been released that contains so much additional content that it practically makes Mario 64 an entirely new game. We’ve seen our fair share of user-created mods over the years but this one is easily one of the very best out there.What modder Kaz Emanuar has created is nothing short of inspired. He has added 130 new stars, 12 power-ups, areas, enemies, and bosses to the original Mario 64. As you can see from the trailer, Mario uses abilities and power-ups from a variety of other games in the series. In some ways, this can be seen as a Super Mario Bros. greatest hits. Despite all of these disparate elements, the game doesn’t feel like it was haphazardly put together. It is clear to see that everything in this mod is deliberate.The attention to detail in Super Mario 64: Last Impact is downright astounding. This project took over 4,000 hours to complete and Kaze has been uploading videos on his progress for the last year. It is possible that he has been working on Last Impact for longer than that, however. To be fair, Nintendo does a great job of releasing new high-quality Super Mario games so there hasn’t exactly been an outcry by fans for the series to return to its roots. This project was created more as an act of love rather than to fulfill a need that the original developer has failed to deliver.If you want to try out Super Mario 64: Last Impact for yourself, you can do so by following this link. There is even a handy tutorial for the game that you can watch in the video below.last_img read more
