New Super Mario Bros 3 - From the Nintendo NES to the Nintendo DS

New-Super-Mario-Bros-3-HackBoth Super Mario Bros 3 and New Super Mario Bros are fantastic games within the series. Many would argue that Super Mario Bros 3 is the greatest Mario game of all time. It should come as no surprise that a ROM hacker has now ported the levels from the Nintendo NES classic into New Super Mario Bros.

A hacker that goes by the name of SKJmin has been working on the port for quite some time now. His thread in the ROM Hacking section of the GBATemp forum has stretched to over 94 pages (as of writing) with a large fan base already. Within his thread are many screenshots of the project and a download link to the patch.

The hack brings the levels of the 1988 (Japan) classic over to the more modern Nintendo DS outing from 2006, using nothing but existing tiles/sprites from the Nintendo DS game. From looking at the current progress on the video uploaded to YouTube, the levels look somewhat identical to the original and well worth a playthrough.
