Fans creating Super Mario Galaxy 2.5

#1 Edited by Phatmac (5731 posts) -

Passionate fans of SMG2 are now taking the task of creating a new game called Super Mario Galaxy 2.5 In the trailer below it is clear that they're still hard at work and even require more people for the project to be completed. You can download a demo of a level for free on their website and even apply for a job on the game as well. Nintendo has yet to respond to the fan-made game. For a look at the project at work check out the trailer below.

Holy shit, at 0:31 in that video, there's totally a remake of Bob-omb Battlefield, the first level from Super Mario 64. Fantastic - can't wait to play this!

This reminds me that I still haven't played Super Mario Galaxy 2.

@MooseyMcMan: Same.

I'm more intrigued by the 2-player mod though.

And I still have to get around to laying Super Mario Galaxy 1.5.

It's going to get shut down eventually. Nintendo always shuts down fan projects.

Nintendo did nothing with the custom NSMB Wii mods so I doubt they would do anything to this.

There's a Super Mario Galaxy 1.5?

Anyway, I'm still waiting for Super Mario Sunshine 2. I don't care what everyone else says, Sunshine will always be my favorite! ALWAYS!

@MooseyMcMan:

I invoke either Poe's Law or the lack of tone in text responses. (IE: That was a joke.)

What are you talking about? I'm 100% serious, Sunshine is my favorite Mario game.

Also, what Poe? Edgar Allen?

This looks amazing, I love fans and their enthusiasm!

@MooseyMcMan:

That Super Mario Galaxy thing from before was the joke. Oh, and I'll just suggest looking up Poe's Law.

Oh. I thought that you thought what I said was a joke.

And yes, a brief glance at Wikipedia reminded me of Poe's Law. I just thought of Edgar Allen and the ghosts in Zelda games first.

I LOVED Sunshine. It was beautiful and I adored playing a Mario game in a different setting with new characters involved.

Can they do this for Majora's Mask, too? :(

That's totally the best thing.

Considering that SMG2 is amazing, I'd be pretty okay with this.

If by always you mean that they don't, then yes.

Count me in for Sunshine, it's the first 3D Mario game I beat. It's not as ugly or as unrefined as 64 nor as unwieldy and confusing (to me) as SMG is. Honestly, I didn't always know which flick of the analog stick would send me which direction in SMG sometimes, plus the camera spinning to odd angles always gave me a bit of a headache.

So, yes, another 3D Mario collect-a-thon on a flat surface, please.
