A Ba bit of the Super Mario Sun The modding community has come together to make their favorite game even better. The result is Super Mario Eclipse, a huge mod that expands the Mario’s Isle Delfino adventure with new moves, new worlds, new playable characters, and an all-new story. The first demo of Eclipse dropped at the end of last month, and it looks outstanding.

Of course, the original Super Mario Sun massively critically acclaimed when it was released in 2002, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a lot of room for improvement. For example, Mario and his robotic backpack FLUDD make a great team, but what if you could play as Luigi, with his super jumping abilities? super mario bros 2, or Shadow Mario brandishing a brush?

Super Mario Eclipse means you don’t have to wonder anymore. How about some new moves? Have you ever wanted Mario to try using FLUDD to glide around islands, but worried that the sand on the beach would rip his clothes and skin to shreds?

Beach sand, cobblestones, none of it marks Mario as he slides down the shore. In the real world, this gesture would leave a bloody trail of plumber shavings on the beach, but in Super Mario Eclipse Mario is completely unscathed. Either that or the jet of water cleans up any wounds.

What I like the most Super Mario Eclipse it’s that it refreshes a classic game that I enjoy but have no desire to play. having watched Super Mario Sun speedruns for years, the 2002 GameCube game (and its recent Switch release) does absolutely nothing for me. It’s nice to be excited about it again. Thanks, modders!
