Week of Mario Mods Day 3: New Super Mario Bros. Showcase

The talent and enthusiasm behind the Mario modding community is unlike any other. Countless Mario titles have been deeply modified and experimented with, and this week Mario Party Legacy will be highlighting five different Mario games and series that feature a dedicated and fascinating hacking and modding community.

Day 1 | Day 2 | Day 3 | Day 4 | Day 5

Just like our showcase for Super Mario 64 earlier this week, the New Super Mario Bros. series has a lot to show off in the hacking department. Since the series started back in 2006, several full scale hacks have been created and released for both the DS and Wii versions. With tools like Reggie, players can design and create completely new levels, allowing fans to create the Mario side-scroller they’ve always dreamed of. Some of the bigger hacks have also gone the extra step and added custom tilesets, custom bosses and enemies, and even custom power-ups.

Two years ago, we showcased one of the biggest and most ambitious hacks, Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii. The team behind the game put forth an immense amount of effort to create one of the most creative and innovative hacks the community has ever seen. With the addition of a completely new world map, a brand new soundtrack, and a load of ASM work, the standard for New Super Mario Bros. hacking was raised.

With that said, take a look at some of the great titles you can play right now!

So what’s next for the modding community for the New Super Mario Bros. series? For starters, the first steps of hacking New Super Mario Bros. 2 for the 3DS are being put into place, adding another game for the community to tinker with. Outside of that, there are still several other projects to look forward to!

 

Newer Super Mario Bros.

In the New Super Mario Bros 5 opening, Peach’s dress is kinda floating upward. Her legs and feet are seen when she’s floating down.

According to Miyamoto, Peach was originally considered to be Playable in NSMBWii, but decided against it because it would be difficult to Animate her Dress.

She would carry it like how she did in 3D World.

i want peach to have her own NSMB style game called New Super Princess Peach. it would play just like NSMB wher you go through levels and use power ups, but she would be trying to save mario like in super princess peach. that’s why it would be called NEW super princess peach, because its like super princess peach but its newer and better, and it would get rid of the stupid emotions gimmick

I should put that in my letter to Nintendo. Here are my 2 ideas:
– New Super Princess Peach
– Super Princess Peach 3DS

You play as agreen urchin-lookin ball of Plasma and roll across enemies to defeat them. You can also absorb them when you roll on them to grow bigger.
So basically, it’s the Katamari concept with platforming.

Although we had a Level Editor for NSMBWii, there’s still yet to be one for the Direct Sequel.
