'New Super Mario Bros Origins' Brings An Unofficial Remake Of The NES Classic To Nintendo DS

New-Super-Mario-Bros-Origins-ROM-Hack-ReleasedWhere retro remakes are concerned, you have to admit, Nintendo are pretty good at giving the fans what they want. That said, the original Super Mario Bros seems to often miss out on the remake treatment, with Nintendo opting to only re-release the classic instead. This, however, is all about to change following a fan-made New Super Mario Bros DS ROM hack.

New Super Mario Bros Origins is a remake of the Nintendo NES's Super Mario Bros. and The Lost Levels, using the Nintendo DS's NSMB Engine. Having imported every single level from the original two games identically, this stunning celebration of the game's first outings is exactly what fans would want from a remake.

Every single element of the 8-bit classics appear to be in place, from Goombas to 1UPs, all of which now sit aside the brand new gameplay elements New Super Mario Bros introduced in 2006. You can rest assured that this unofficial creation does the Nintendo NES original justice, especially knowing that the hack's creator is also the one behind New Super Mario Bros 3 (a similar hack using the levels from Mario's third NES outing).

As usual, to enjoy this ROM hack patch you will need to have a legally obtained original New Super Mario Bros ROM file to which you can apply this patch to. Full instructions on how to patch this ROM can be found within the download, or you can refer to this handy ROM patching guide on YouTube.
