Super Mario 64 is now an online multiplayer extravaganza

Modders have turned the single player 3D platform classic Super Mario 64 into an online multiplayer free-for-all that’s available to download and play right now.

Thanks to Kaze Emanuar, Melonspeedruns and Marshivolt, one of the all time greats can now be enjoyed as a 24-player online extravaganza.

The result is a sort of Mario Kart vs Super Mario mashup, with players competing for coins and power ups in an attempt to finish the level first.

Players are also encouraged to invent their own mini-games, including a cheeky little game of hide-and-seek in the mansion.

Each new character in the game (all the gang’s here) plays it slightly differently too. Princess Peach can fly/float for example.

All users need to do is download a Super Mario 64 ROM (*ahem* if you owned the original, of course) and load it using the emulator of their choosing.

From there, here’s a tutorial on how to get going (via SlashGear).

Given this is an entirely unofficial modification, we’d guess it won’t be too long until Nintendo’s lawyers get involved, so get in there while you can.
