Released in 2017 for the Nintendo Switch, Super Mario Odyssey is not a remake of an old game like Super Mario 64 which landed on the Nintendo Switch with Super Mario 3D All-Stars and in which an easter egg from the original Donkey Kong is hidden in the 'intro . Super Mario Odyssey is a game designed entirely in 3D for the Nintendo Switch , in particular with the control possibilities offered by the Joy-Con.

A fan had the idea of creating a Super Mario Odyssey demake , like Cyberpunk 2077 for which a developer has designed a PS1 version of the game . The YouTuber "TeddyRoseKidd" has therefore recreated a level of Super Mario Odyssey entirely in 2D , exactly as if it had been released on the NES with the controller with only two buttons.
Mario can even cast his Cappy cap in Super Mario Odyssey on NES
TeddyRoseKidd shared a video on YouTube in which he fully details the development process of Super Mario Odyssey. He explains in particular that he created himself- same all the resources of the game, except the model of Mario which he picked up from the Internet before changing the colors of the character. The NES game is completely free and it can be downloaded from Google Drive . However, we do not know if it will stay online much longer, given the very Nintendo's strict approach to fan projects.
Although the game only supports two buttons to trigger Mario's actions, the YouTuber managed to implement a lot of moves. for example the forward dive, theCappy cap throw, triple jump, ground load , etc. The player can collect 5 moons and 35 red coins scattered throughout the level. In addition, TeddyRoseKidd clarified that this project took him two days to develop. This is also the reason why he could not incorporate more elements of the game as well as enemies that would have required much more work.
Finally, it is not the first time that enthusiasts have created demakes of their favorite Nintendo games . A few years ago, we presented you for example a 2D demake of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild . Much more recently the Poom game was created on the Pico-8 virtual machine to see at what would DOOM look like if it was released in the 1980s .
