60fps GET

We're so used to Super Mario games running in silky-smooth 60fps these days - it's hard to imagine playing Super Mario 3D World in anything less - but 2002 GameCube title Super Mario Sunshine has always been locked at 30fps - until now, that is.

Industrious hackers have modded the game so it runs at 60fps via the PC-based Dolphin emulator. While it's not a perfect solution - the game's audio is doubled in speed as well - it does give a glimpse of what a remastered game should look like. Nintendo, take note, though it admittedly did a fine job with The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD on Wii U.

Pikmin 2 also works with this hack, and you can view the two games in action below. Just be sure to change the YouTube settings to 1080p60.
