SM64 + SMO: Discoveries

Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Odyssey share a lot in common. From the principles of how it worked to the good times we had, these games were loved by so many people. I probably won’t include pictures in this article too, but you’ll see them if I do. Let’s get into it.

As you all know, the discovery of finding Luigi in Super Mario 64 made the headlines for the past couple days. This was such a big milestone for the Super Mario 64 community and fanbase. My mouth dropped when I first saw the article on the Google News Feed. I wasn’t too surprised about the graphics because it was obvious that Luigi looked like that. Seeing the graphics and design of Luigi in Super Mario 64 was quite fun, because the colours were quite vibrant and definitely went well with the game backdrop and setting. Of course there were mods and stuff to make things like this happen previously, but this was different.

Super Mario Odyssey has different Kingdoms. I haven’t played Super Mario 64 so I can’t really make the Kingdom comparison. I just completed Super Mario Odyssey with 999 Power Moons, so one of the things I’m doing right now is just roaming around the entire Mushroom Kingdom. I am hoping to find some new unknown spots in the Kingdom, but I don’t think that’s going to happen. I guess we’ll just have to leave it to the experts. There are many spots in this Kingdom and one of my favourites is this one Super Mario 64 Room guarded by a Toad in a Mario hat. Before that, you need to make sure you have the SM64 outfit, which is for sale at the CrazyCap Store. Then, walk over to that one room guarded by that Toad, which is near the Goomba Woods. You must be wearing the SM64 outfit in order to enter. Upon entering this one room, I was in love with the graphics and design because it looked and felt like Super Mario 64. You will have to collect two Power Moons there and to do that, you will have to open a set of chests in a certain sequence. Open them correctly and one of the Power Moons is yours. Fail to do so and you’ll be attacked by reforming mummies.

I do like how in SMO when you get to the Mushroom Kingdom, there are these small Peach Towers with frames of the boss fights which you can revisit the same way in SM64.

Hopefully, there’ll be some new major discoveries. There were discoveries for Super Mario Odyssey such as glitches and stuff. I don’t think there have been major ones such as Luigi’s discovery in SM64. Hopefully, those major discoveries come soon. Ever since I completed Super Mario Odyssey, I’ve just basically been exploring/roaming the Mushroom Kingdom, riding around the Metro Kingdom on a scooter. I don’t feel like starting a new game because it took almost a year or two to complete since I didn’t always have time to play. Besides, some of the Power Moons were hard to collect anyway like the Volleyball Power Moons and much more (I couldn’t think at the top of my head whilst writing this sentence). Also, some people installed mods into the game to play as Super Luigi Odyssey. However, I have no recollection whether or not the Odyssey was green from watching the videos of it.

Apart from all that, Super Mario Odyssey and Super Mario 64 are great games and I love them a lot even though I haven’t played SM64. I believe Super Mario Odyssey has given me a chance to explore my creative side quite a bit and thinking about the possible discoveries that are yet to come. I do hope that I can find something.

That’s all I have time for today. If you didn’t read my last article, check it out at my profile @TheRetroPhilosopher. Thank you for reading and I shall see you soon.
