Super Mario Land's Game Boy Graphics Reimagined Via Patch

Super-Mario-Land-Game-Boy-Graphics-Reimagined-Via-PatchThere's beauty in the simplicity where older games are concerned, but we'll never refuse seeing them in a new and enhanced light. This is exactly what's happened with Super Mario Land on the Nintendo Game Boy, with one enthusiast recreating the game's graphics to take advantage of the handheld's hardware.

Over the course of the last few decades, Mario's character has evolved time and time again to the chubby, yet cheeky, protagonist we know and love today. In an attempt to bring these rounder characteristics and modern style to the older titles, Arne Niklas Jansson has recently updated the Game Boy classic's visuals.

Super Mario Land 2013 is an all new patch for the original Game Boy platformer, which features a completely new look and feel, yet still captures the magic found within the original.

In order to enjoy Super Mario Land 2013, you will need to have an original Super Mario Land 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.
