Modder Releases Super Mario Land in Color

Several years after Mario came to dominate the NES, Nintendo decided to give players the opportunity to take his adventures on the go. The result was 1989’s Super Mario Land, an immense success that would blossom into a popular franchise. All these years later, Super Mario Land still has dedicated fans, and some of them decided to give the game an update that adds an important element not available on Game Boy: color.

Modder toruzz has released a completed version of the game re-made with color and dubbed Super Mario Land DX. This mod was officially finished and uploaded on April 22nd, one day after Game Boy’s 30th anniversary. Not a bad way to celebrate! You can check out the launch trailer above, and if you like what you see, there’s a link to follow through to play the game for yourself.

Modders Add Shrek to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Nintendo first unveiled Super Smash Bros. Ultimate with a tagline of “Everyone is here,” and indeed, Ultimate boasts an incredible roster that includes every past playable character in franchise history. That said, many fans are never truly satisfied with any roster, no matter how big. For those ever-insatiable Smash players, there’s always mods.

The latest Smash Ultimate mod to make the rounds adds everyone’s favorite ogre as a playable character. That’s right, thanks to modder Hefty, you can play as Shrek in Smash. At this point, the mod is really just a visual change, as Shrek doesn’t have his own move set. Instead, he’s sporting Ganondorf’s hard-hitting attacks. Of course, the real question is this: when will Donkey be playable?

Kirby’s Best Anime Episode Goes Delightfully Meta with a Massive Reanimated Collab

The Kirby: Right Back at Ya! anime, starring the titular pink puff we all know and love, is known for its occasional bits of satire and self-referential parody. No episode made that clearer than episode 47, “Cartoon Buffoon.” While this episode turned the series’ concept on its head—with King Dedede looking to create his very own cartoon, resulting in a poorly drawn retelling of the first episode—it also gave its audience an inside look on the extensive production process behind making a cartoon.

Hand this already meta episode to eager artists to reanimate from start to finish, and you wind up with a hilarious and delightful collaborative adaptation of a fan favorite episode that makes it worth watching all over again! Check out the Kirby Reanimated Collab in full above.

The project was led by Roya Shahidi, who founded the collab back in 2017 and managed to reign in a massive team consisting of over 300 artists! You can check out the full list of credited artists right here.

On a more somber note, among the artists involved was the late Angelxmikey, who quietly finished his long fight with cystic fibrosis and passed away in his sleep earlier today. We at Gamnesia extend our condolences and deepest sympathies to his wife Merluvli, his family, and his friends in these times.

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe Already Has a Bowsette Mod

We’ve finally come full circle. When Nintendo first announced New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe (still a mouthful) for Nintendo Switch, they revealed a new item called the Super Crown that transforms Toadette into “Peachette.” The internet began speculating what the Super Crown would do to other characters, such as Bowser, and soon the often-NSFW “Bowsette” was born.

Now that the game is finally out on Nintendo Switch, it’s time to make those fan dreams a reality. Well, probably not all of them. This is still a family friendly game, after all. Either way, modder Nivium has already put together a mode with a playable Bowsette. You can check out the footage above!

Super Mario Odyssey Mod Adds a Banjo-Kazooie Level

Super Mario Odyssey was one of the top games of 2017, and it was an especially big hit with retro gamers. The Switch exclusive is a brilliant tribute and follow-up to the classic 3D platforming adventures of the late 1990s and early 2000s, reminding its nostalgia-loving fans of games like Banjo-Kazooie.

In that spirit, modder ItzSka decided to take the classic Clanker’s Cavern level from Banjo-Kazooie and insert it into Odyssey. The level is fully playable, with six Jiggies to collect and plenty of fun challenges to tackle. You can check out some footage above, and if you follow through to the video description you can download it for yourself.

An Impressive Fan Remake of PT is Now Available for Free

Back in 2014, a mysterious game called ” P.T.” was unveiled at Gamescom and then uploaded to PlayStation Network. The short but memorable horror experience turned out to be a “playable teaser” for a new Silent Hill game, but an ugly divorce between Konami and Hideo Kojima led to its cancellation and the removal of P.T. from Sony’s online store.

Since then, there have been multiple attempts by fans to recreate this piece of gaming history, but most were either never completed or shut down by Konami. However, a developer going by RadiusGordello has spent the past 9 months rebuilding the game from scratch in the Unreal engine, and yesterday he released it for free. The game is fully playable, and it’s even compatible with VR devices like Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.

If you’re interested in learning more about the project, there are two articles that detail The Making of Unreal PT and The Development of Unreal PT. You can check out the release trailer above, and you can download the game for yourself by clicking the video and following the link in the description.

Ocarina of Time HD Fan Remake Gets Playable Demo

YouTuber CryZENx has made quite a name for himself over the past few years with his retro game remakes. He’s got a knack for taking iconic moments and locations from classic games and beautifully recreating them in Unreal Engine 4, and his favorite game to tackle is The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

After making considerable progress on remaking the game in its entirety, CryZENx has just released a playable demo. This demo build lets you play through the Kokiri forest, including the Great Deku Tree dungeon. The demo includes combat, cutscenes, and even the Gohma boss fight. You can check out footage of this area above, and the demo will also include the Temple of Time.

CryZENx intends to continue development next year, making more of the story playable. Of course, with a project like this, there’s always the possibility of Nintendo stepping in with a cease and desist, but development on this remake has been going steady for a long time now without interruption. Hopefully Nintendo allows that to continue! You can download the demo yourself by clicking through to the YouTube description.

Japanese Nintendo Fans are Holding a Bowsette Convention

Over the past two weeks, the internet has erupted into an obsession over a made-up Nintendo character. The introduction of the Super Crown item (which transforms Toadette into Peachette) in New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe led to fans imagining what other characters would look like with a Super Crown, and Bowsette has become the clear front-runner.

Nintendo remains silent on Bowsette, but the fans just keep getting louder. In Japan, support for the character is so strong that cosplayers and artists are now organizing an event to celebrate. “Project Crown” looks to gather Bowsette lovers together at the Kawasaki Municipal Industrial Promotion Hall on October 27th for various activities, including art and manga sales and cosplay competitions.

Modders Add the Luncheon Kingdom to Mario Kart Wii

The Mario Kart franchise maintains a diverse and fun lineup of tracks by continually adding new ones based the latest Mario (and general Nintendo) games. Critically acclaimed Switch hit Super Mario Odyssey has no shortage of wonderful worlds to choose from, but it came out after Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, so it hasn’t yet been represented. That’s where the fans come in.

In the absence of official playable Odyssey tracks, Mario Kart Wii modders decided to step up to the plate and create one of their own. By re-working Mushroom Gorge, modder Luke Chandler was able to recreate Odyssey‘s Luncheon Kingdom as a new course. Although still a work in progress, Luncheon Kingdom is fully playable in Dolphin, and you can download it by clicking on the YouTube video above.

An EarthBound Classic Gets a Phenomenal Jazz and Funk Cover

Be it through the quests of Ninten, Ness, or Lucas, “Pollyanna (I Believe in You)” is a recurring theme throughout the EarthBound series that holds a special place in the hearts of its fans.

That particular rendition now has a phenomenal jazz/funk cover through the collaborative efforts of four talented musicians, premiering on YouTube today. Call them “Pollyanna,” because they must be crazy as a loon to have pulled this one off—check it out for yourself above!

Nintendo Forces Takedown of Pokémon Essentials

In recent months, Nintendo has become increasingly aggressive when it comes to threatening legal action over potential copyright violations. Shortly after they cracked down on two major ROM sites, Emuparadise removed all of its ROMS and ISOs, likely to prevent a similar fate. Just weeks later, Nintendo is on the move once again, this time against Pokémon-related software.

Pokémon Essentials is a game kit that can be used in tandem with RPG Maker to create custom Pokémon adventures. Although the software itself is 11 years old, it may have come under scrutiny due to the fact that it was used to build the fan game Pokémon Uranium. The game was later removed due to pressure from Nintendo, and all development ceased after the developers were allegedly threatened with a lawsuit in the hundreds of thousands of dollars by Nintendo.

Whatever the reason, Nintendo has decided to put an end to Pokémon Essentials. Recently, download links for the kit vanished, and the official wiki was shut down. PokéCommunity’s Marin announced that this was due to a copyright strike from Nintendo and warned that those materials could no longer be hosted on the website as a result. However, at this time, “All other scripts, tutorials, resources and games will still be allowed on PokéCommunity.

There are still numerous tools available for hacking Pokémon games. It’s unclear if Nintendo will attempt to take them down as well or if they’ll stick with taking down programs used to create original games using copyright IP. They have previously issued a cease and desist against ROM hack Pokémon Prism, so anything is possible.

You Can Now Play Super Mario 64’s Opening Area in Glorious HD

Super Mario 64 was one of the first great 3D adventure games and has served as an inspiration to countless developers. The Nintendo 64 classic saw a remake on DS, but it’s never been given the HD treatment. Maybe that will change on Nintendo Switch, but until then, a talented fan has stepped in to fill that gap.

Modder CryZENx has created a demo of
Super Mario 64‘s opening moments, and it’s available to download now. The demo is currently restricted to the area outside of Peach’s Castle, but it’s an impressive recreation thus far. You can make use of all of Mario’s various moves, like triple jumping, wall jumping, diving, and more. You can even swim in the moat or climb onto the roof of the castle.

This demo was built using Epic’s Unreal Engine 4. You can check out plenty of footage above, or, if you’d like to try it for yourself, you can

Nathan Fillion Stars as Nathan Drake in Fan Made Uncharted Film

Fans have been begging for Nathan Fillion to be cast as Nathan Drake in an Uncharted film for years, but the role has reportedly gone to Tom Holland instead. So why has Nathan Fillion been teasing an Uncharted announcement this week? As it turns out, in the absence of being cast in the official movie, Fillion has decided to film his own Uncharted short film.

The film is directed by Allan Ungar (Gridlocked) and written by Ungar and Jesse Wheeler with Fillion producing. It’s set in the Baja Peninsula of Mexico and opens with Nathan Drake (and/or Fillion) being interrogated by some intimidating men who believe he has stolen something rare and valuable from their employer. It runs just short of 15 minutes, and you can watch the whole thing by clicking the video above!

Although short, it’s plenty of fun, and Fillion is absolutely wonderful as Drake. Hopefully Sony doesn’t see fit to pull the plug on this one.

Konami Shuts Down Fan-Made P. T. Remake

2014’s
P.T. was a huge hit with PlayStation fans, and the full game (Silent Hills) was eagerly anticipated by millions. Unfortunately, it wasn’t meant to be. The game was cancelled, and the playable teaser was pulled from Sony’s online store. Recently, an impressive fan-made recreation of P.T. surfaced online, complete with a playable demo.

As many predicted, Konami has stepped in to take action against the fan project. Developer Qimsar cannot continue development, and he has taken the playable demo down at Konami’s request. However, there’s a silver lining to this cloud. Qimsar
wrote an extensive explanation of the situation, and he claims Konami has offered him an internship.

“It hasn’t been made super official or anything, but a freakin’ internship for me with Konami in which I would do stuff with Konami US, EU, and Japan. Internships tend to turn into jobs fairly often and for a 17-year old who isn’t even a senior in high school just yet, to get this for the very first game project that he’s ever worked on with 6 hours of prior UE4 experience (and a fair amount of Unity experience (35 hours give or take) but that’s irrelevant :P), that’s pretty good.”
— Qimsar

Qimsar says he spoke extensively with a Konami employee who told him that his fan-made take on
P.T. was popular around the office, but had to be squashed for legal reasons. Konami has not yet issued a public statement on the issue.

Modders Have N64 and GameCube Games Running on Switch

Nintendo’s struggles with hackers and modders continue. Earlier this year, Switch was declared “completely compromised” due to its Tegra X1 architecture, and since then we’ve seen countless examples of this. Nintendo has responded, banning members of the Homebrew community and Splatoon 2 hackers, but they just keep coming.

The latest development in the realm of Switch modding deals with emulation. We’ve already seen
some examples of this, including an attempt to run SNES Classic software on Switch. This time around, @_Mizumi on Twitter has modded his Switch to play certain Nintendo 64 and GameCube games via emulation.

The lineup shown off so far includes
Super Smash Bros. Melee, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Sonic Adventure 2: Battle, Pokémon Snap, and more. Some games run smoothly while others are slowed down, and modders are continuing to refine process.The community is also working to bring Wii games to Switch via Dolphin emulation, and there are some early attempts at DS emulation as well.

While we haven’t seen any repercussions yet, it’s likely only a matter of time before Nintendo catches wind. In the past they’ve banned modded consoles from going online. It’s impressive to see what these fans have managed to do, but we’d advise caution before making any changes to your Switch for emulation purposes.
