    Changed description to reflect this being a bugged version with the update released as a separate patch. 5667 contains the functioning reworked patch, which was made in the more functional DSPRE while this one, 5657, was made in PPRE which is prone to making bugs. This page can be deleted as needed.

SMB3 - Graphics Update

Hack of Super Mario Bros. 3

Description:

Nothing too special; it’s just the classic game with a graphics upgrade. More specifically, the larger and blockier sprites such as the item chests in the Toad houses and the up-scaled tiles in Big Island are now much smoother. Not only that, but the game still runs perfectly; no slowdown or crashing anywhere. The fact that Nintendo just up-scaled sprites they already made just bugged the crap out of me; they were obviously lazy, because even with the updated graphics, the game still runs flawlessly. Capcom pulled it off in the Mega Man games; the giant dragon and Gutsman tank in Mega Man 2, for example. There were hi-res sprites in those games with no slowdown or crash, so why couldn’t it happen in SMB3? In addition, the up-scaled sprites were just ugly.

Oh, yeah, also edited Luigi’s color palette. Another thing that bugged me about SMB3 is that Luigi had a darker (and better-looking) green color on the map screen, but in the game, his green is brighter. In no other game is Luigi a bright green (well, except for SMB2, but that wasn’t originally a Mario game anyway), so not only was it inconsistent to have two different shades of green in SMB3, but the bright green he had in game-play was inaccurate.
