Nintendo really wanted its newest handheld, the DS, to sell back in 2004. So what did they decide to do for one of their launch games? Remake Super Mario 64, give it some content, and show off the functionality of the DS’s dual screens with touch capabilities. So join, not only Mario, but also Yoshi, Luigi, and Wario on this classic revisitation of a world we once knew all too well.

So I was on the fence about doing a project for this game for awhile. I recognized it for being an absolutely new game with new content, but since I had done Super Mario 64 before, and since I was currently lacking a DS capture device, I figured I was going to give it a pass and move on straight to Galaxy. However, one of my good friends (who has requested to remain Anonymous), decided that he wanted to make the decision of whether or not I was going to LP the game, for me, by sending his own device for the sole purpose of Let’s Playing this game on my channel. I was honored by his gesture, it was a perfect time to do this game because I was in need of another project to do, and at the end of the day, it worked perfectly! So without further ado, let’s step into the world of Super Mario 64 again for….Super Mario 64 DS!

Thank you once again, SirBetaKnight!

Yoshi’s Island DS

After the events of Yoshi’s Island, Kamek goes on a baby-napping spree yet again and makes the mistake of messing with the wrong infants. This time however, Baby Mario is not alone as a few other select babies from the Mario universe are here to fight alongside the Yoshi race as they take back their island once again from Kamek’s evil deeds.

So here is a little backstory with this project….this has actually been in the works since like…2014, and even the tail-end of 2013 as well, however, with DS capture being a novelty that is not readily accessible, getting this one off the ground was quite the challenge. For those who watched my updates, this was the long-defined project known as “Project Babysitter,” a codename I gave this project in particular because the original Yoshi’s Island project was once considered some of my best work on Youtube. A month before this project was even recorded, this was still considered an impossibility until Nintendo gave us the wonderful news that DS games would be coming to the Wii U console’s eshop, and this game was one of the first candidates. This only meant that Project Babysitter could finally come off the ground!

Mario and Peach surely need a vacation after all of the kidnappings they’ve had to endure, but they are about to find out that this vacation will not be absent of controversy. A shadowed doppleganger of Mario has appeared on the luxurious Isle Delfino and is covering the island in mysterious goop and when Mario arrives on the scene, he gets blamed for the mess. With a new water tank named FLUDD on his back, Mario proceeds to clean up the entire island and to clear his name.

I wanted this game to be my big summer Let’s Play, but I unfortunately took a bit longer in finishing some of my other projects, making this game appear rather late in the summer months. Regardless, this is a game that I have wanted to do since my initial completion of Super Mario 64 back in 2013 and with just enough summer left in this year, I knew it was the perfect time to begin this game. Unfortunately, I got plagued with some computer issues during this project, but as soon as I got them fixed, I was right back on track.

Mario has been on lots of adventures, but Super Mario 64 was the first adventure to take Mario in a 3D environment. Princess Peach has invited Mario over for a slice of cake, but when he arrives at the castle, he finds that things are not as they seem. The Princess has once again been captured, in her own castle no less, and Mario must rescue her, while also restoring the power of the stars to the castle. By doing this, Mario will not only save the day, but might still get that piece of cake!

Super Mario 64 was a game I was kind of worried about at first, mainly due to the sheer amount of people who have done a playthrough of the game on Youtube already, but thankfully it’s a game anyone can get into, no matter how many times you play it or watch it. This game is definitely a legendary title of the Mario series and its influence has been widespread throughout the ages.

The Mario series has come a very long way, and although his games started on arcade machines and the NES, this game showed us that Mario went on adventures even when he was a little baby! Even before they could be delivered to their parents, Baby Mario and Luigi were separated, with Mario ending up on the back of his future friend Yoshi while Luigi was captured by a koopa wizard named Kamek. It’s up to Yoshi to find and rescue Baby Luigi and and send the babies to a proper home so they could have a nice Italian upbringing.

This was the fifth “replay” project I did on my channel, as I had done some videos for the game at a prior date, but due to the bad (camcorder) quality of the project, with no commentary to boot, I decided to redo the project with a modern spin. The older videos are no longer available on my channel.

I normally did not like doing replays back-to-back, but due to the success of Kirby Super Star and people wanting more from the SNES era, I couldn’t ignore the demand for another high quality SNES game, and Yoshi’s Island was the perfect candidate! The project was quite a challenge to overcome, as getting 100% in this game is quite the daunting task, but when you stick a game from my childhood in front of my face, you are never going to hear any complaints from me!

This project also featured some content from the Game Boy Advance remake “Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi’s Island,” as I showcased the six bonus levels that were exclusive to only that port of the game. This content was shown later, long after the project was finished.
