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.

In Memory of Hiroshi Yamauchi, Nintendo Remixes Super Mario Land and Metroid Themes

Just days ago, Hiroshi Yamauchi, the man who saved console gaming with the NES and gave the now-legendary Shigeru Miyamoto his first chance at making a game, passed away at the age of 85. His death has been met with a universal display of reverence toward the man from all corners of the gaming community, for each of us knows that this man is the reason our passion persists to this day.

And now, former Nintendo composer and audio producer Hirokazu Tanaka, also known as ‘Chip’ or ‘Hip’ Tanaka, has created some beautifully somber remixes of two classic Nintendo tunes, the themes of Metroid and Super Mario, in honor of Yamauchi’s legacy.
