Fan remakes Super Mario Land in "New Super Mario Bros." style, as a SNES homebrew game

    The romhacking and fan-game world never ceases to amaze, as fans take decades-old experiences and repurpose them in a more modern and refreshed take. Super Mario Land is one of the most recent games to get this treatment from a dedicated fan, as they re-created it entirely in the style of New Super Mario Bros. That in and of itself is pretty interesting, being able to see something that originally released on the Game Boy in full color, as if it had been released a handful of years ago, instead of 1989. It gets better, though, as the developer has not only done that, but furthered their effort and created the game specifically from the ground up, in assembly, for the Super Nintendo. So, you've got a game from the Game Boy, with the visuals of something on the Nintendo DS, playable on the SNES.

    In true New Super Mario Bros. tradition, the homebrew game has four-player co-op. Wall jumping was also added to Mario's arsenal of moves—something that was not present in the original, along with a few tweaks to platforms in order to make the game more playable in a multiplayer format.


    This game came out of nowhere, arriving in reproduction cartridge form to a friend of the developer, who wants to remain anonymous, and refuses to share the game publicly, for fear of legal action. However, the owner of the repro cart also teased that it might be available one day, in the usual places that these sorts of games tend to crop up on. The development of New Suoer Mario Land took around 3 years to create, and came from a lone developer who wanted to share it with his friends as a Christmas present to celebrate Super Mario Land's 30th anniversary.

    Subtlety is dead lol. It's akin to Pokemon Uranium and AM2R, and it's distributed as a rom. Given the site's rules, no, I don't think it's okay for it to be linked to directly on here. It should be very easy for those to find if they want it, if it exists, somewhere out there, in the world.

    Pretty much what I thought thanks for clarifying.

    You MAY or may not find in links on some video's on youtube lol.

    Also I can't get the game to run on Snes9x on my 3ds but it plays perfectly fine on my snes android emulator.

    The ROM is already out.
    For those that know where to look, Twitter is a good place to start.

    Wow. Can you imagine if this had been available in 199x on the SNES? Amazing to see what rom hackers can wring out of these older systems.

    That's interesting. Apparently someone made a colored version even before this. I wouldn't have known, if this didn't make me curious.

    Whatever disagreements on graphical choices you might have, the contemporaneous multiplayer is an amazing acheivement and especially the inclusion of the bubble system. I'd play it just for that.
    Would be nice if it could be ported to other systems, like the DS, where it would sort of seem more at home
