    Wouldn't it be something if someone put this on real SNES carts and sold them as if it were an official game to unknowing people on eBay? Not saying it should happen, but... :huh:

    It's made from the ground up, rather than a port

    People sell fan translated and romhack games on repro carts saying they’re official all the time on eBay.

    I'd be happy with a WarioLand level editor for the first game. There was one started, but it never got finished.

    Its a little rough round the edges but i cannot criticise the whole thing being built from ground up and taking mechanics from not only a previous gen console but also later gen console and actually writing them in.
    Its impressive. Compliments to the chef!

    For those that care, this game works as a SNES inject on the WiiU, if you want 4 player support you must use the official "Natsume Championship Wrestling" as the base.

    Supported controllers:
    - Wii Remote with Classic Controller attached (Wii Remote by itself or Nunchuck connected will NOT work)
    - WiiU Pro Controller
    GamePad will always be player one, if you need to change which player is the GamePad, tap on the GamePad screen to get into the Virtual Console Menu, on the TOP RIGHT of the screen that shows P1 with 4 boxes, tap this, here you can change which player is assigned to the GamePad. For 3 or more players, the GamePad will need to be the last player.

    Enjoy

    Nope as the link had not been noticed before by site staff. But you have now linked to it in a thread by a staff member :)

    Yes but you are for your own and you have posted a link to the original link so technically you have linked to banned material on the site so you have also broke site rules

    To think these kind of visuals were achievable way back then..... Truly an interesting thought.

    At least we can say it's better than the Super Mario All-Stars HD garbage.

    The ROM is on archive.org. I doubt it's going to be DMCA'd on a site that has DMCA exception. I also don't believe it's against the rules to mention Archive.org because they have a DMCA exception (therefore, they cannot possibly violate the DMCA for using their exception). A quick search for it by name will bring you directly to the download. It's also only a homebrew game that uses original assets. It's not like the Link's Awakening Remake made in RPG maker that this site has no problem allowing users to link to (which includes asset rips directly from various official Nintendo produced Zelda game Roms).

    It has some major sprite clipping issues and the hit box used for character detection is too small. However, it has not crashed on me yet. For a Super NES homebrew it is very impressive (seeings as it was coded in ASM by one single person). Porting open source engines to the Switch is a walk in the park compared to what this guy did. Hell, coding for the Switch in C/C++/C# is a breeze compared to coding for the SNES in ASM.

    He based his artistic work on Donkey Kong Country. These sorts of visuals were achievable back then. Did you not own a Super NES?

    This game was originally produced for 30 of people and was distributed on the kiosk-reprogrammable "Nintendo Power" cartridge, which he helped the SNES community reverse-engineer. I'm not sure if someone then dumped and distributed the game Rom of if he decided to anonymously spread it around the net.

    It's a completely made from the ground up. The author by his lonesome programmed it in ASM and created the art assets by himself. The levels were created by referencing the data in the Game Boy Rom. If you know anything about SNES homebrew this is something that takes teams of skilled programmers to do and most of the recent ones to do this sort of quality work end up only releasing their games as retail cartridges. It's very rare to see this sort of quality from a SNES homebrew let alone one that is completely free.
