What’s the best Mario game of all time? If you said Super Mario Bros. 3 for the NES, you’d be right. Maybe that’s why fan-hacker SKJim is on a mission to recreate Super Mario Bros. 3 for the Nintendo DS. Using assets from New Super Mario Bros for the DS, SKJim has just finished recreated all of World 1 and most of World 2.
Check out the video below for some footage of the fan-hack in motion. Fans will notice that this isn’t a pixel perfect revision. The author takes a few artistic liberties, plus some of the power-ups from Super Mario Bros. 3 are not available. Still, it’s a mighty impressive project. You can find out more about it, by heading here.
