If you are into fan-made projects that aim to add some spice and flair to an IP or two, then you are in luck. The very daring and bold Kaze Emanuar is back, except this time with an updated version of Super Mario 64: Ocarina of Time that can be downloaded for PC.
How to Download Super Mario 64: Ocarina of Time
You can download the new version of Super Mario 64: Ocarina of Time by hitting up the following link:
After retrieving the file make sure to enable 8MB ram in the emulator’s settings, if you do not enable 8MB the game will show a black screen on startup. More information on Super Mario 64: Ocarina of Time can be found below.
I bet you are thinking, “but why? It’ll be taken down quickly, right?” Well, Emanuar actually faced a strike from Nintendo that forced him to take down a download video about one of his projects — regarding Super Mario Online — on his YouTube channel.
According to publication site NintendoLife, which shortened a 2017 interview between redbull.com and Emanuar to a bite-sized read, it is said that the modder doesn’t fear the act of a DMCA strike. Emanuar’s response sits below:
“This whole ‘DMCA meme’ needs to stop. Even if they did, there are already thousands of alternate download links. Some people get irrationally mad at other people for sharing Nintendo fan games, because they think they’re going to get DMCA’d due to the publicity. There’s nothing that can stop this fan project now, though.”
In other words, Emanuar is saying that if developers try to shut a fan-made project down mid-production it can continue without them knowing. And if the mod or expansion is up, then it will never die. Emanuar, who spoke with other devs, noted that what kills mods like this one is the lack of exposure.
In addition to the above, Emanuar explains the act of a company doing the whole DMCA thing actually brings more traction/attention to a fan-made project, thus prompting the likelihood of someone downloading it and then making it immortalized since they can easily re-upload it to the web.
Well, with all of that said, you can either download the new version of Super Mario 64: Ocarina of Time or you can pass on it.
