A classic game hacker who goes by the name Toruzz released a ROM hack for Super Mario Land 2 that colorizes the second Super Mario Land game and adds some features to it.
Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins was a 1992 Gameboy game that was the first introduction of Mario’s rival, Wario. The yellow-clad plumber kicked Mario out of the castle he apparently owns and took control of it, locking it behind six coins. Mario had to go to different worlds, like a tower-sized Mario statue which he also apparently owns and even outer space.
The ROM hack not only adds color to the game, but rebalances aspects to it and adds Mario’s higher-jumping brother Luigi to the mix. Toruzz calls the project Super Mario Land 2 DX, in the same naming convention of titles like Super Mario Bros. DX and Mario Kart 8 DX.
You can catch Super Mario Land 2 DX’s trailer below. It looks quite cool and seemingly fixes the screen flicker that plagued the original game.
