[Projects] A new beta-remake: New Super Mario Bros DS!

[Projects] A new beta-remake: New Super Mario Bros DS!


Update: it seems that this hack was found by Trekki, Tanks, Sonicandtails and other “NSMB hackers” too, along with the version of LucaPM and other gamers. You can download the Trekki version at http://treeki.googlepages.com.


LucaPM was working on a  “beta-hack” to restore more removed stuff from the game. The beta revival would have had all the secret levels playable plus some more from the early Mario Bros DS tech demo and the E3 beta version, the removed “traditional” 2 Players mode in the levels and mega goombas.

Some info about the “beta-hack”: how you probably know, there are 5 unused levels in the “Final NSMB game code” that come from the beta version of NSMB :

  • 2 are grasslands levels
  • 2 are desert levels
  • 1 is a castle level

One of the desert levels is probably the oldest level in NSMB because it’s showed in a video of the beta NSMB at the E3 when the old tileset were used (NSMB was still a concept). You can see the video in the NSMB beta page of Unseen64 :) More infos about the beta levels and the tech demo come from Youtube and U64. Some beta-levels are completely shown so the reconstruction should be affidable and accurate, but others will be incomplete because there are not many more informations.

Here’s the download link for the semi-beta of the beta project: http://lucapmspace.blogfree.net/?t=2121216

    dude, rip-off. This is a ROM hack being done by several people I know, and LucaPM has absolutely nothing to do with it.

    I’ve done this with Nitro Explorer by my own and it’s NOT A RIP-OFF.I can also make a video on how I did it.

    Oh, it´s so great! It´s a pitty, they removed the multiplayer (Mario/Luigi “co-op”) in the final version!

    Is the beta hack still being worked on? I’m working on a remake of the unused “Sea” level with the sharks that was shown in the E3 Trailer, and I’m wondering if I could have it put into the beta hack.

    Um, monokoma, the link at the top of the page doesn’t seem to be working correctly, would you be able to fix it.

        In one of the images, I saw the enemies with a 3D fully rendered model, and the score numbers behind mario had a different design. I don’t exactly know if this remake will be fully possible. Maybe it needs to be made from the ground up? Either that or the whole game might need to be reprogrammed?
