Super Mario 74: Ten Years After is a major ROM Hack created by Mariocrash (also known as LinCrash on Twitch). Released on January 2021, this hack is a crossover of both Lugmillord's Super Mario 74 and its Extreme Edition counterpart, which introduces newer themes for the levels, as well as newer missions. It was made as a celebration of Super Mario 74's 10th anniversary since its official public release.
According to the story and the title itself, this hack is the 3rd game of the series, which takes place 10 years later after the events of Extreme Edition; meaning that the levels are no longer devilishly difficult, although some are harder or visually close to their predecessor. While all of this is exclusive, the levels are mirrored again and fewer extras that weren't in both hacks have been included.
The new update, Deluxe Edition, released in about the day of Super Mario 74's full release, features extra QoL enhancements, additional design changes, polished collision, & reworked Sphere levels as a way to lower the game's difficulty to be blind/casual-friendly for fans and experienced players alike.
After saving Princess Peach from Bowser's evil clutches and stopping an extreme disaster, peace has returned in the Mushroom Kingdom. While its restoration process is underway, Mario notices that something is off around the worlds and is investigating the changes. Could this be Bowser taking revenge, or, some strange phenomenon about to spread across the kingdom once again?

- The name Bogey Bayou is a reference to the music playing in the level "Bayou Boogie" in which the name is a play on words with "Bogey" and "Boogie". Also the way Alternate Entrance is used is a reference to the Other Entrance in Star Road.
- The name Absolute Zeroasis is a reference to the word "Absolute Zero" as the level is a snowy desert with very cold temperature water hence the word "Oasis".
- Stalactite Cave is Stalagmite Cave flipped upside down and is a water level compared to the usual fire cave level.
- Void of the East is only the level Lugmillord did not make in Extreme Edition, its darker color and vibes are inspired to Remnant of Doom's Forgotten Lands.
- Signs in the third overworld have quotes dedicated to speedrunners such as FramePerfection and CartoonBuffoon.
- Both Veninium and Delombru are a mix of the two spheres as per the similar layout they're presenting, and the levels can be pretty confusing from the mirrored rotations.
- The level and name Bowser's Rainbow Realm is a reference to Star Road's Rainbow Rumble by the fact visuals are from this hack and the music plays the same in the 3rd Bowser level.
