HD heaven

Super Mario 64 is one of the finest video games ever made, but aside from a Nintendo DS remix, it has rather been forgotten by Nintendo.

Thankfully, dedicated fans still love the title enough to bring it back from the dead, and four such individuals -- Aryoksini, mStuff, Callum Martin and Chadtronic -- are currently working on an unofficial HD remake of the N64 classic.

The core team are appealing for additional help with the project via a Facebook page, and are keen to stress that the venture is entirely not-for-profit -- not that it will help if Nintendo's legal team decides to get involved.

Still, the footage shown so far is absolutely gorgeous, and makes you hope that some day Nintendo will choose to officially revisit this seminal title. Until then, this is looking like the next best thing.
