There is now a DirectX 12 PC version of Super Mario 64 that you can download

Now here is something that came out of nowhere. A team of indie developers has released a native version of Super Mario 64 on the PC. This PC version uses the DirectX 12 API and you can download it right now.

Now for obvious reasons we can’t share the link of this project. Obviously, we’ll also delete comments linking to this fan-made game. After all, this unauthorized PC version falls into the piracy category. However, I’m pretty sure that most of you will be able to find it online. For what it’s worth, Super Mario 64 PC is still available for download.

This PC version of Super Mario 64 allows you to use different controllers in order to play it. Imagine that, playing a Super Mario game on the PC via an Xbox controller. And people said this day would never come.

Moreover, PC gamers can also use Reshade in order to further improve the game’s visuals. Therefore, it will be interesting to see whether Reshade Ray Tracing can improve the game’s graphics in any way.

Below you can find a video, showing Super Mario 64 running on the PC.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
