Fan takes 6 years to port Super Mario World to the MSX

A really impressive port

The MSX was an 8-bit platform, but you might not know it from the video above. It was created by Mario/MSX fan Daemos, and it took him 6 years of hard work to make it happen. The only pieces this port are missing from the real version of Super Mario World are the end credits and one boss fight.

It doesn't seem this has been released to the public, and it might never be. Nintendo has a habit of swooping in to squash these projects. Daemos wanted to share a look at it as a way to celebrate Super Mario Bros. 35th anniversary, and it would be a shame to see all his efforts get scrubbed from the internet in just a few days.

Thanks to Sephazon for the heads up!

Very impressive. Love to see the results of this kind of dedication.

Not to encourage the guy..but this should have been developed with MSX2 which adds more colors and supports scrolling if I recall.

Awesome. Hopefully it'll be archived before Nintendo destroys it.
