Super Mario 64 HD has taken a step closer to reality, with Mexican developer Aryoksini having taken on the monumental task of recreating the entire Nintendo 64 classic in sparkly high-definition glory.

Using the Blender game engine, he has now refined Mario’s HD character model so that the mustachioed Italian plumber can now turn to change direction more quickly, and can perform his triple jump, wall jump, long jump and dive moves.

There’s still much more to go, of course, but you can keep an eye on progress through his Twitch channel if you wish!
