While we wait for Nintendo’s new Super Mario Bros. movie starring Chris Pratt, you can keep busy by playing Teenage Super Ninja Plumbers, one of the most unusual video game mashups that you’ll ever see. It was created by developer ‘NesDraug’, and in this game, the sewers of The Mushroom Kingdom have been infested by Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles, and it’s up to the famous plumbers to save the day.
Programmer Graslu00 has created a custom GoldenEye 007 level with Super Mario 64 characters, and the Peach’s Castle mod works surprisingly well to say the least. We see everything from Koopas with machine guns to grenade-throwing Bob-ombs. Does this GoldenEye 007 with Mario characters mod look familiar?
Always wanted a Super Mario 64 mod that let you play as the iconic plumber in Tomb Raider? Well, it’s here as OpenLara SM64, and for those who don’t know, this open-source engine isn’t the original game, but rather a recreation that stays true to the original look and feel. Features include a smooth 60fps framerate, setting the game’s internal resolution, new water effects, and self-shadowing on all the player models.
Halloween is just months away, and what better way to celebrate than with a Super Mario 64 first-person horror game? Called ‘Another Princess is in Our Castle’, this fan game has you playing as Mario, the hero of the Mushroom Kingdom, who decides to come back to Peach’s castle a few years after her passing, but something isn’t quite right.

Nintendo released Super Mario World in Japan on November 21, 1990, which makes it exactly 1-billion seconds old today. For those who never owned a Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES), Super Mario World was actually the very first Mario game for the console and designed to showcase its technical features. This meant that the development team had more freedom compared to the series installments for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES).
Remember digital artist Finn’s Super Mario RPG remake from last week? Well, there are a few new screenshots available, but unfortunately, still no release date since Finn says that it won’t be playable due to legal reasons. Should Finn eventually work something out with Nintendo, a playable demo could become a reality in the near future.
A new set joins the LEGO Super Mario line, and it’s the 2,807-piece ‘The Mighty Bowser’ set, complete with controllable movements as well as the ability to launch a fireball. It features newly designed elements to recreate the look of Bowser’s spikes, and aside from the fireball launcher, there’s also a button to control Bowser’s head / neck movements, mouth, arms, legs, along with tail.
Another day, another video game fan project, and this time, it’s a Super Mario RPG remake by digital artist Finn. Those familiar with this game know that it has two main sections: adventuring and turn-based battle sequences. Finn has revamped the latter with all-new graphics, but since there are no random encounters, a battle ensues only if Mario comes in contact with one.
Think of ‘Super Mario Starshine’ as Super Mario Galaxy 2 meets Super Mario Sunshine, and a blast to play. It actually uses Super Mario Galaxy 2’s game engine, which means players will be able to take advantage of its floating mechanics as well as spin maneuvering during gameplay, complete with Yoshi and power-ups.
Always wished there was a Super Mario Odyssey online multiplayer mod for the game? Well, programmer CraftyBoss has made it a reality, and some are actually able to try out the beta now. This mod enables co-op gameplay with up to 10 players, complete with a moon collection shared between all.
