Super Mario 64 is one of the most beloved games of all time. We were amazed, as gamers in the 90s around the world, by the ability to run, jump and do everything in a 3D environment. It was revolutionary and changed completely the gaming industry forever.

Such an iconic game needs to have a well preserved legacy, and hardcore fans recently have taken matters into their own hands, by making an unofficial PC port using a totally reverse engineered code made from scratch. This version features 4K resolution, 60fps, Widescreen, updated models, analog camera, better quality sounds, etc.

Nintendo, as part of its Mario 35th Anniversary, announced the new Mario All Stars 3D, which Includes Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy.

The inclusion of Super Mario 64, being able to play this adored game anywhere, is amazing. But we feel this game deserves a lot more, and that the efforts to faithfully preserve this game in the collection were very lackluster in comparison to the unofficial PC port, for example, or even the DS version of Super Mario 64.

The version of Super Mario 64 in the collection features a resolution of 960x720, which is 4:3 Aspect Ratio (Not even FULL HD). It runs at 30fps, and it's basically a modified, emulated ROM of the game to change some minor details, rather than a port using the original game code, which Nintendo must have in their database.

This game deserves far more love than what was done. A look at the effort made by the community to polish the visuals demonstrate the love we absolutely have for this masterpiece, and we want more than what was done. If a team of fans over Discord can basically recreate the entire code of the game without even having the original code, and preserve this for new generations, why can't Nintendo do this too, while having the original code themselves? 

Please, Nintendo. You can release a patch update after release to the Mario 3D All Stars collection to feature these changes. The other games on the collection do feature nice graphic updates and far superior quality. Why can't this beloved game be preserved the way its meant to be? We definitely want to pay for this game instead of emulating it, but we want it to look great after all these years. You can do it Nintendo. We would love to see our beloved game be preserved the way its meant to be.
