Popular Super Mario 64 Hacker Kaze Emanuar’s latest mod adds Luigi, Princess Peach, Toad, and Rosalina to the playable cast of characters in the groundbreaking game.
The rom hack is called “Super Mario 64 3D World” as the four additional characters along with Mario were all playable in 2013’s Super Mario 3D World for the Wii U. The new characters retain all the powers that differentiated each other in 3D World. Luigi can jump high but is really slippery to play as, Toad is fast but can’t jump high, Peach can float in the air for a few seconds, and Rosalina can spin jump in midair. Mario gets the additional ability of twirling in the air to slow his fall.
Each character has its own model created by AnkleDestroyer as well as their own voice clips. You can select characters by using the D-pad on the file select or act select screen.

We last saw Emanuar when he modded the hat throwing and enemy possessing powers from the upcoming Super Mario Odyssey into Super Mario 64, allowing you to toss your hat and take control of everything from goombas to moving platforms.
Emanuar, a math student from Germany, has been working on mods for Super Mario 64 for the past four years according to an interview. All of the mods can be seen on his YouTube channel.
By far his biggest accomplishment is “SM64: Last Impact,” which adds 130 new stars, 12 powerups, a new soundtrack, and brand new levels to the game. While all three download links have been taken down by Nintendo, Emanuar said you can still download it if you search for the mod online.
Emanuar is also behind sillier mods of the game, such as “Fidget Spinner 64” which turns Mario into a flying fidget spinner.
He also made “Super Trump 64,” where a Mexican version of Mario scales Donald Trump’s border wall.
And let’s not forget “Super Releasio 64,” which replaces all the textures in the game with Toad’s face and replaces the soundtrack with horrifying screams of agony.
