When it comes to the N64, GoldenEye 007 and Super Mario 64 are some of the best games on the console. You could even argue that they’re some of the best games ever made. What do you get when you combine the two? You get something so great, I wish that original developer Rare would have just included it as a bonus level on Goldeneye’s N64 cartridge.
Developed by StupidMarioBros1Fan, this “Goldeneye with Mario Characters” mod (which originally released back in 2018) features a new Super Mario 64 Peach’s Castle level, recreated within GoldenEye. It contains the classic GoldenEye gameplay and sound effects, and even includes mission objectives and a Bowser boss fight. YouTuber Graslu00 who mainly focuses on Goldeneye and other N64-era games showcases the level in the video above and helped create and test it as well.
I just think it’s hilarious to see the Koopa’s walking around with weapons. Even the thought of Mario carrying out the mission of saving the princess “James Bond” style cracks me up.
If you want to play it for yourself you can download the mod here. This mod will replace every character in Goldeneye with Mario characters, and even changes the original dialogue to reference characters like Peach and Bowser. This new level is a fantastic addition, but if you really want to relive the entirety of GoldenEye 007 in a whole new light, this mod is definitely the way to do it.
Now if only someone would add dual flamethrowers.
