Super Mario 64 (スーパーマリオ64, Sūpā Mario Rokujūyon) is one of the first three dimensional (3D) platform games. Super Mario 64 features free-roaming analog degrees of freedom, large open-ended areas, and true 3D polygons as opposed to two-dimensional (2D) sprites. It established a new archetype for the genre, much as Super Mario Bros. did for 2D sidescrolling platformers. Hailed as "revolutionary", the game left a lasting impression on 3D game design, particularly notable for its use of a dynamic camera system and the implementation of its analog control.

In going from two to three dimensions, Super Mario 64 placed an emphasis on exploration within vast worlds that require the player to complete multiple diverse missions, replacing the linear obstacle courses of traditional platform games. While doing so, it managed to preserve many gameplay elements and characters of earlier Mario games. The title is acclaimed by many critics and fans as one of the greatest and most revolutionary video games of all time.

Emulation Information

No Controller Rumble

As was the case in the official Wii Virtual Console release, there is no support for the original Nintendo 64 release's Rumble Pak functionality, even when emulating or connecting a GameCube controller.

Only the Japanese Virtual Console version is affected by this, as that release was based on the July 1997 updated version, commonly known as Shindou based on the phrase "振動" being shown 3 times on the version's original cover.


There are no reported problems with this title.

Test Entries
Revision OS CPU GPU Result Tester
r7719 Windows 7 Intel Core i3 @ 2.53 GHz Intel GMA X4500HD Runs at 60FPS; no sound with HLE plugin (use LLE instead but you will need DSP file dsp_coef.bin and dsp_rom.bin placed in the folder user/gc in Dolphin emulator) CoolKirby
3.0-368 Windows 7 AMD Phenom x4 965 ATI Radeon HD 4870 60FPS,To fix sound just click(activate) Wii (home) menu and exit back
4.0-6029 Windows 7 Intel Core i5-3570 @ 3.4 GHz Intel HD Graphics 4000 Completed without any problems. Collected all 120 Stars. Played fullscreen (1920x1080) with 1x native resolution and HLE sound. humdi
Ishiiruka-785 Windows 10 Intel Core i5-3320M Intel HD Graphics 4000 Nearly perfect. Steady 30FPS throughout an hour of play. Very minor texture flickering. SETTINGS: Direct3D11, V-Sync, Force Analog 16:9, 1.5x IR, No MSAA or SSAA, 4x AF, 2x XBRZ Texture Scaling, various post-processing enhancements (FXAA and SSAO, to name a couple) via DolphinFX and IshiirukaFX shaders, Safe Texture Cache, Full Async Shader Compilation, Fast Depth Calculation. SETTINGS IN GAME PROPERTIES: AR Codes for Remove Dark Filter and Extended Draw Distance, Gecko Code for 16:9 Aspect Ratio Fix. This is running on a HP ProBook 6470b. The program 'ThrottleStop' was needed to disable power-saving functions that were killing the frame-rate previously. It sometimes takes a few seconds after getting in-game for the FPS to reach its target and stay there. Jodeth
