Official development for Nintendo 64 may have ended over 15 years ago, but that hasn’t stopped the impassioned modding community from keeping its library of memorable 64-bit hits alive with new updates and improvements. Rare’s influential shooter, GoldenEye 007, remains a huge fan favourite, so of course one talented user has created a mod that turns its Bond-based cast into Mario, Luigi and the rest of the Nintendo gang.
StupidMarioBros1Fan from GoldenEye Vault put this brilliant little mashup together, which enables you to play through both the single-player story and local multiplayer with all your favourtie characters from the Mushroom Kingdom. Ever wanted to run around Archives with dual PP7s while dressed as Mario? It’s time to turn that dream into a reality.
You can play it right now too, as long as you’ve got an EverDrive 64 flashcart. Just download the patch from here onto your cart, plug it in and Mario multiplayer with mines and slaps is yours. What do you guys make of this amazing mod? We’re already hankering for some retro splitscreen action…
