Super Mario 64 for the Nintendo 64 is one of my all-time favorites. It’s an example of how games can be transformed from one generation to a new generation of games. Mario was converted from a flat 2D character to a 3D figure. The gameplay of the game was amazing, everything felt right. Now we can enjoy the same game in Virtual Reality! A new experience, that is still far from ready but it gives you a glimpse of what is possible with these amazing games. I really enjoyed it and I hope you enjoy the gameplay video.

There are also a couple of hidden world in the game. You are free to wander in all directions and discover the environment without time limits.

You don’t need to collect them all to finish the game. If you do collect all stars the canon outside of the castle will open so you can shoot the top of the roof where Yoshi has a special message for you. Will you be the first to reach Yoshi in VR?
