Super Mario 64 PC port is getting HD and upscaling mods

Like any other company, Nintendo is notorious for sending lawyers after fans that have a more liberal view on what they may or may not do with the company's treasured IPs (intellectual properties). That's especially true for fan-made mods, let alone a complete port of a popular game from a console long gone. Now that the cat is out of the bag, though, it's really no surprise that the Super Mario 64 PC port community continues to operate and grow, developing and releasing mods that seem to flaunt their defiance in Nintendo's face.

Super Mario 64 native PC port supports 4K and Xbox controllers

Almost every Super Mario title has been a hit but a few have become milestones in gaming history for one reason or another. Super Mario 64 is the prime example of that, being the first of its kind to land not only on the new (in 1996 at least) Nintendo 64 console, it was also the first in that series to jump into three-dimensional space. That monumental title in Nintendo's history is scheduled for a revival but not before fans have released a PC port that requires no emulator to play.
