Super Mario 64 PC Port Ray Tracing
The much talked about Super Mario 64 PC port that was built from the ground up from leaked source code is improving graphically, and in a big way. A modder who goes by Dario online is working on adding ray tracing to this version of the game, and so far, it looks far better than even the Super Mario 3D All Stars for the Nintendo Switch. Since it’s a work in progress, you won’t see a masterpiece just yet, but the game still runs quite nicely on an NVIDIA GTX 1080 (720p, 30 fps) without ray tracing.

Ultimately, Dario has no plans on integrating the ray tracing renderer with other popular mod projects, but rather make the solution modular enough so it can be integrated into their project if they wish to do so with minimal effort. Who knows, we may see a a Sonic and Mario 64 game in the near future, like the fan creation you see below.
