If you missed out on the chance to buy the Mario 3D All-stars Collection, you can now play Super Mario 64 through your web browser (via Nintendolife).
Super Mario 64 first released way back in 1996 for the Nintendo 64. Since then, critics and fans alike have considered it one of the best Super Mario games of all time. Not only that, some have gone one step further and called it one of the best 3D platformers of all time.
This fan-project is playable through your Web ‘Bowser’ (see what I did there?). Best of all, there’s no need to use a ROM to do so. This N64 classic can be played using a mouse and keyboard, as well as a controller.
Of course, we do recommend that you pick up Super Mario 3D All-Stars and support Nintendo. This collection offers you the classic Mario 64, alongside two of our personal favourite Mario games – Sunshine and Galaxy. Both are well worth paying for.
If, for whatever reason, you have forgotten how to play this legendary platformer, the browser game will provide you with the controls on the screen. You can even save your progress so you can come back to it in the future.
We’re under no illusions that Nintendo will take this version of Super Mario 64 down in the very near future. After all, Nintendo is known for pulling down browser games and fan-made projects.
As we mentioned before, Nintendo is selling Super Mario 64 as part of a collection of Super Mario 3D All-Stars. So we reckon it’s only a matter of time before Nintendo makes it disappear.
So, hypothetically, if you REALLY wanted to play Super Mario 64 through your browser, you’d need to make sure you played it ASAP. And you’d need the link to the browser game to play.
