Super Mario Bros. 3+ romhack brings Luigi, Toad and Peach with unique mechanics ala SMB2 into SMB3

Romhacker Infidelity, known for several impressive technical hacks in the past, like Super Mario All-Stars for the NES, which combines all of the classic NES titles into one ROM, similar to what All-Stars did on the SNES, has released a beta for his newest hack, Super Mario Bros. 3+.



The hack features a lot of new mechanics and QoL features into the original Super Mario Bros. 3 for the NES. One of the most impressive technical feats that this hack offers is the ability to play as either Mario, Luigi, Toad or Peach (Princess Toadstool), similar to what Super Mario Bros. 2 did back in the day. The list of new features goes as follows:
  • Mario is the overall balanced character, with the same stats as in the original SMB3.
  • Luigi can jump higher than anyone else.
  • Toad (with mushroom) can kick objects with the B button.
  • Princess Toadstool (small,big,fire,raccoon) has the ability to float/hover.
  • SRAM saving to keep your progress.
    Player can save their progress at the overworld as well (which is the recommended method at the moment to avoid possible crashes)
  • Players can now wall-jump, similar to how it's done in recent Mario games.
  • Players can now ground pound, similar to recent Mario games.
  • Smash through bricks and enemies with the Hammer Suit while in your shell.
    Hold Down+B to charge your P meter. When P meter is full, release the B button but keep holding the Down button down. You can even jump while spinning by holding Down.
  • Re-enter cleared #-# stages, and mini castles.
    Cleared #-# stages will be white, indicating you can reenter it. Mini castles will have a flag in the front, showing you can reenter it.
  • The romhack works in real-hardware, be it through a reproduction cart (using an MMC3 chip / clone as base) or through a flashcart (tested with PowerPak and Everdrive N8 Pro).
  • And many more features.
As mentioned, the romhack has been released as a beta currently, but once some of the bugs are ironed out, it will be released in a stable manner, and it will be uploaded to Romhacking.net once that happens.

If you are interested in trying out the romhack, you can download the patch for it through Infidelity's Twitter post about the beta release.


UPDATE: The game's beta release has been updated to v1.1:

Yup, and most of those same mods are still available on other websites as well. Yeah they end up on romhacking.net, but they tend to also get hosted elsewhere on the net, sometimes on their own dedicated websites, while still having Romhacking host a copy as well. Just seems so stupid to protest a mod that's only hosted on Romhacking, as if the people that banned you from Romhacking had anything to do with the creation of the mod in question. You're misplacing your anger at that website is the point here.
And what if I wanted to release translation patches in my language? I certainly can't do that there. I would just make my site and put them there... if I had the skills to do so. Nope, I cannot keep myself at all from taking it out on people posting their hacks only on RHDN.

Your justification to protest individual mods for how a website hosting the mods treated you is incredibly flawed. Like, I'm not going to protest PewDiePie because the mods at Youtube shut down my account for something I said in my own video completely unrelated to PewDiePie. There is a huge leap in logic to make PewDiePie in any way a part of my frustrations with the platform that would have banned me in that scenario.

I am using lunar to inject the mod to the rom (seems to work, no errors) but when I try and find the game in retroarch it is not showing?
Any pointers please?

had that happen as well had to get a better rom a 1.1 the usa rom you are using isnt the right one. unfortunately i can not share where to get that due to forum rules. but I will say this . source a cleaner rom dump. i can empathise with you. then use lunarIPS and the patch file on a original smb3 rom and it worked. best of luck!

Thanks, I was thinking that. Should be able to find an alternative 👍

First of all, awesome job there, it's impressive how far modders can go.
That said, I think I'll no try this one. The original game difficulty is fine for me, there's real challenge there. Features like wall jumping will make things way too easy I believe.

It does but it's kinda fun in the world 7 level with the screen wrap and some other cramped levels.
