About The Game

Mario steps into a whole new dimension in this unforgettable launch title of the Nintendo 64. Unravel the secrets of Peach's castle, find all 120 stars and defeat Bowser in this cult classic that set the rules for all 3D action games.

Although it managed to stay faithful to the spirit of the series, Super Mario 64 tried a new approach as it brought the concept of exploration into platform games.
