Super Mario 64 Plus trailer takes Nintendo Classic to new heights

Super Mario 64 Plus, a fan-made update to the Nintendo classic, reveals graphics updates and alternate gameplay modes in the trailer.

A new trailer has fallen off Super Mario 64 Plus, a fan-made PC mod for Nintendo’s groundbreaking 1996 release.

As reported by PC Gamer, the trailer highlights some of the new features Plus adds to the classic game: a frame rate of 60 FPS, more responsive controls, and an improved camera – which looks like the standard 3D freecam commonly used in video games today, but which is ahead of 64-bit technology by leaps and bounds. Mario’s moves have also been updated with more recent additions to his arsenal, including spider jumps, extended belly slides, wall slides, ground pound jump, dive hop, and ground pound dive.

There is also a selection of new modes for it Plus: the ability to stay in a level after collecting a star (instead of being spit out in the hub world and having to re-enter levels repeatedly), an infinite life mode, a hard mode, challenge modes with fan favorites such as the green demon challenge and daredevil challenge, and a permadeath mode that will wipe out progress after you lose a life. All these customizations can be turned on and off at the player’s discretion.

Mors, the developer of indie games Plus, said on Twitter that their current plans for the game include a v1.1.0 patch with “further fixes and some minor, but often requested new features.” After that, they plan to focus on other projects for a while.

Originally released in 1996, Super Mario 64 was the first Mario game played in 3D. It received critical acclaim upon release and is considered a highlight in Nintendo’s lineup and one of the greatest games of all time. In 2004 a remake was released for the Nintendo DS. Super Mario 3D All stars was released: a gateway to the Nintendo Switch or not just like that Mario 64, but also from 2002 Super Mario Sunshine and 2007’s Super Mario universe

Super Mario 64 Plus is currently available for download on PC.
