This Fan-Made Super Mario Bros. 5 Took 7 Years To Develop

Quite the dedication to say the least.

A Mario enthusiast going by the name of Metroid Mike 64 on Twitter has seemingly achieved the unthinkable. The individual in question has taken a deep dive into Super Mario Maker 2 to create something that Nintendo itself never could—an unofficial Super Mario Bros. 5

Taking to Twitter to make the big announcement, Metroid Mike says that “[they’ve] been working toward this moment since 2015, trying to create a classic Mario game that plays as if Nintendo created it themselves.” At long last, the result is finally out.

Anyone with a copy of Super Mario Maker 2 can enjoy Mike’s brilliant work. The dedication is through the roof with this one — to be fair — and the amount of work that must have gone into creating this version of classic Mario is seemingly insurmountable.  

Mike’s not joking when he says that he wanted to formulate something that would hit home in terms of giving players that feeling of nostalgia. Users, such as Nintendo’s Blueprint, have all commended the fan for his terrific work and can’t just get enough of the trip down memory lane that the unofficial Super Mario Bros. 5 exhibits.

Contrary to popular belief, a game like Super Mario Maker 2 where you’re given all the cards you need in order to craft a killer Mario level is ridden with trolls. People who’ve got their hands on the level creation game by Nintendo prefer creating meme levels instead of something with depth and intricate value. 

Metroid Mike’s Super Mario Bros. 5, on the other hand, is flat-out genuine. It makes the best of classic Mario elements as a modern iteration while making sure the gameplay stays fun throughout the campaign. 

As for the amount of content featured in Super Mario Bros. 5, players will be able to experience 40 different courses in 8 different worlds, similar to the official Super Mario Bros. 4 except for the levels. The latter comprises 32 stages to power through as the main protagonist. 

Furthermore, Metroid Mike has gone all in with his multi-faceted creativity with Super Mario Bros. 5. One of the levels featured by him on his Twitter spells nothing less than sheer artistry. The creator shares an airship-centric course coined “Wendy’s Battletank of Doom.” 

Lastly, the fan-made Super Mario Bros. 5 has its fair share of puzzle levels too. You’ll come across puzzle-based levels such as the forthcoming Switch Station to put you to your paces in typical Mario fashion.  

As iterated earlier, anyone with a copy of Super Mario Maker 2 can try out Mike’s Super World right away. If you’ve got it lying around still, time to take it off your shelves and load it right into your Nintendo Switch console. The Maker ID of Super Mario Bros. 5 is 0G9-XN4-FNF

From what we can gather, the title is akin to Super Mario World in the fun aspect while boasting the aesthetic appeal of Super Mario Bros. 3. Plus, there’s no shortage of secrets in the game, which is yet another facet resembling the evocative essence of Super Mario games.
