Super Mario Bros. is a very important game in the history of video games. It is surely the most famous platform game in the world, and it is regularly reissued by Nintendo on various online stores. But a version of this title did not, according to a player, have the fate it deserved.
Super Mario Bros. : A classic with a Deluxe version
Super Mario Bros. is closely linked to the recovery of the video game industry after the collapse of business in the early 80s. If it was released after the NES in Japan (which is called Famicom in the archipelago), it was part of the launch games in North America and Europe. With over 40 million copies sold, Super Mario Bros. is a landmark. Even better, it is considered a game design lesson because of the way in which the players discover and assimilate the rules of the game from the first level.
Today, we think of it a lot as the first game in the Super Mario series, the title that made the plumber THE Nintendo mascot. Over the editions or rather ports, Super Mario Bros. gained some comfort options, but the game didn’t really evolve. However, Super Mario Bros. was entitled to a Deluxe version, released on GameBoy Color in 1999 in the West and in 2000 in Japan. We still have to go through the levels to save Peach from Bowser’s clutches, but the physics has been slightly reworkedwe are able to save whenever we want, we can alternate between Mario and Luigi and access a world map.
And that’s not all ! Super Mario Bros. Deluxe also offers a Challenge world, a VS Mode accessible by connecting two consoles via the Link cable, a You vs Boo mode which is unlocked after finishing the game and a mini-game. The title then had to wait until 2013 and 2014 to land on the eShop of the 3DS.
A striking remake project made by this fan
But that’s not enough to Aloelucidity, which has decided to offer a PC remake from Super Mario Bros. including the features of the GameBoy Color version. This is obviously a fangame, but the title requires a working Super Mario Bros. ROM. dumped by users themselves to work. Super Mario Bros. Ultra Deluxe is currently in development, and the creator indicates on his Discord that large screens will be taken into account.
It remains to be seen whether or not he will decide to distribute the fruit of his labor but, for the moment, the release is expected at the end of the year. We know that Nintendo is particularly attentive to this kind of production, and that the publisher does not hesitate to ask for work to be stopped or to sue the most zealous. In any case, if the release takes place and if the success is there, Aloelucidity plans to integrate the terrible levels of The Lost Levels.
