Ever wanted to play Super Mario 64 online? Thanks to the power of fan-modding, now you can in an unofficial netplay mod for the beloved N64 classic. You can check out this fan experiment in the Waluigi-starring trailer below:
As seen above, this online mod can not only host up to 16 players at a time, but includes Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, Peach, Toad, Yoshi and Rosalina as playable characters. Like Super Mario 64 DS, each character has their own exclusive abilities, such as Yoshi’s Flutter Jump, Peach’s floating prowess, and Waluigi’s, uh, inability to take damage. As far as gameplay goes, you can compete with friends to nab stars (up for a race?) or simply make up your own games with friends (hide and seek in Big Boo’s Haunt!).
All the relevant download links and whatnot are avaliable in the video’s YouTube description, although we recommend you make haste if you wish to play it: Nintendo’s been cracking down hard on fan-games and whatnot (remember AM2R?), and we can’t imagine an unofficial online mod for Super Mario 64 will fly under their scanners. Worst comes to worst, the servers may be shut down, so get on it quick!
