You can now Play ‘Super Mario 64 online’ with your pals
A fan-made version of Super Mario 64 reinvents the Nintendo 64 classic into an online multiplayer game. Super Mario 64 Online lets up to 24 players roam around the blocky Mushroom Kingdom, with a cast of characters that extends far beyond the Mario brothers.
Built by modders Kaze Emanuar, Melonspeedruns and Marshivolt, Super Mario 64 Online is a tool that modifies a running version of the game playing in a ROM, so you’ll need emulator software that plays N64 games. The project requires a little tinkering with settings (tutorial video here) and drawing straws to see who will host your game session. After that, it’s off to the races for you and your friends to fiddle around Super Mario 64’s original levels with a sprawling cast of characters, all with different abilitie
Every character has unique powers and abilities in the game, which players can test out both by themselves and with others. The coolest, and strangest, thing to see in the trailer is players running around with each other — multiple Waluigis and Rosalinas racing against each other, playing around Mushroom Kingdom. There are plenty of servers to check out, and it seems like Super Mario 64 Online has a healthy, growing player base.
