Someone recently stealth-released a full Mario 64 port for PC that, as Wes explained earlier this week, went way above and beyond fan-made efforts we’ve seen previously. It runs natively, without the need for an emulator, at high resolution—up to 4K, although the textures tend to fall apart when you crank it up that high—and with full, no-hassle Xbox controller support. “It’s surreal to be playing a high resolution, high framerate Mario 64 on PC,” he wrote, “but I’ve just done exactly that.”

Unfortunately, it’s going to be difficult for anyone else to do it. According to TorrentFreak, Nintendo has begun filing copyright complaints against file-hosting sites carrying the game.
