Super Mario World launched a good 32 years ago, and with it, the end of an era. After its release, all Mario releases by Nintendo focused on 3D versions, Mario Maker games, and modern 2D games. A true Mario platformer styled like Super Mario World or Super Mario Bros. 3 hasn’t happened since. Obviously, the Mario franchise sees great success with where they’re at now. However, that didn’t stop a Super Mario Maker 2 creator from seeing their Super Mario Bros 5 dreams come true.
Super Mario Bros 5
Twitter user MetroidMike64 stepped up to the plate and made his own version of Super Mario Bros 5. Building it using Super Mario Maker, this project is filled with 7 years of hard work and love for the franchise.
To be clear, it’s not just a few Mario courses to reminisce on what a true Mario platformer could be like nowadays. No, it’s practically a fully built game. With 40 full courses across 8 words, this is basically a full-on game. Additionally, Metroid Mike added that these courses combine different game styles, including 24 Super Mario World courses, 14 Super Mario Bros 3 courses, and 2 Super Mario Bros courses. Impressive!
The gameplay is all classic Mario. I’m not trying to troll you or purposely try to kill you, I’m trying to provide you with something Nintendo should’ve done already, make a full Mario game within Super Mario Maker 2, that’s fun as heck!
Super Mario Maker 2 creator impresses us all
As always, fans of Nintendo continue to pump out amazing content. From this to the Breath of the Wild mod we saw a few months ago, I continue to be impressed with the amount of work that comes out from game lovers.
You can check out Metroid Mike’s take on a Super Mario Bros 5 game by searching his Maker ID code on Super Mario Maker 2. The code is OG9-XN4-FNF, and completely free. Be sure to check out this amazing feat either through playing it yourself or checking out a playthrough on YouTube!
