Super Mario Star World is an upcoming SM64DS romhack. It is a remake of Skelux's Super Mario Star Road : New Super Mario Bros Universe 2, and is being developed for the Nintendo DS, rather than the Nintendo 64. In addition to the improved graphics supported by the Nintendo DS, Super Mario Star World will feature plenty of brand new content. It is currently in development, but the project can be found here.

Super Mario Star World is being developed by Skelux, the creator of the original Super Mario Star Road romhack. Development on Star World has gone on for more than six years; Star Road was finished in four.

It is currently around 85% (?) complete. Skelux has stated he plans to add 10 new and modified minigames, as well as modified, colored Yoshi's - each having unique abilities, similar to Super Mario World (blue Yoshi's may be able to fly, etc.)

Other planned features include a costume shop system, new moves such as rolling (added in from Super Mario Odyssey), time attack mode, which would replace the 100 coin stars, etc. It will also include a 16th course, which will be themed around a city; more courses are being hinted at.

This will be one more course than any standard Super Mario 64 (DS) game or hack. Skelux aims to make this the largest Super Mario title of all time with more stars than any other Mario game (including Super Mario Odyssey's 999 moons), and also replacing all vanilla content with new features and adding better control schemes. However, Skelux has also recently gone on to say that gameplay hours for the game will be about 5 to 10 times longer than the original Super Mario Star Road.

Though it is broken up into two arcs with the first being the story taken from the original Super Mario Star Road. While the second arc has been taken from the canceled game Super Mario Star Road 2 which Skelux was making. This second arc has been announced very recently while this is being written and Skelux says the first arc is finished and the second is about 1/30 complete.

Skelux also does optimizations in this hack, so it can be played on a real DS without noticeable lag. His goal is to push the DS to it's limits.

There are also other controls in this hack, if you want to download them, simply click here . And speaking about control. Skelux managed to code "Odyssey-like" controls in the hack, except no Cappy.

Demo Edit

The demo/prequel for Star World is called Mario's Holiday which has 3 levels and a hub area. It has 26 stars however there may be more as Skelux hinted at the possibility of more stars being hidden.

New & Improved Power-Ups & Playable CharactersEdit


Double Cherries Edit

The Double Cherries will be making a reappearance back from Super Mario 3D World, they will make a clone of the player appear and behave similarly to the ones in 3D World.

Rainbow Star Edit

Once again another old power-up shall be returning: it's the Rainbow Star from the Super Mario Galaxy series! It will have the standard invincibility and speed boosts, but now gives you the ability to walk on water that Luigi had in SM64DS.

Vanish Mushroom Edit

A new Vanish Mushroom that turns you transparent replacing the Vanish Cap but with the same abilities such as going through certain walls. However Skelux also stated that he designed it with eyes because it is a different power-up than the Boo Mushroom power-up found in Super Mario Galaxy.

Mega Mushroom Edit

The Mega Mushroom from New Super Mario Bros will make an appearance replacing the Super Mushroom and working like in the original Super Mario 64 DS and New Super Mario Bros.

Gold Flower Edit

The Gold Flower will be making an appearance from New Super Mario Bros. 2 now replacing the Metal Cap but still being able to walk underwater, with the additional ability of shooting golden explosive Fireballs similar to it's New Super Mario Bros. 2 incarnation.

Wing Feather Edit

The Wing Feather will also return behaving the same as in the original game.

Yoshi Edit

Also, there will be a ride-able Yoshi in the game, which will be replacing his playable role. Different colors of Yoshi will be in the game and found in colored eggs. The way to obtain the eggs is currently unknown.
