War Child Chiaki (Super Mario World hack)

26 February 2006 2:30PM EST - Update by Neil

ROM Hacks News

While browsing around the acmlm forums I came across a thread for an incredible looking Super Mario World Hack. The screenshots speak volumes to the enginuity and creativity of the author of this hack. He not only altered the graphics, he implemented new features, and developed a little DMA hack to alter the graphics in game.

I for one can’t wait to play this hack.

These were only available in rom/disk format before, so these patches have been made by me to complete the database due to the hosting policies of this site with regard to images.

The information in those entries is a bit sparse at this point, if anyone has additional comments to make (especially about the actual status of the translations of Xak 2 and Fray, since I couldn’t find any information), you can leave a message in the forum here or possibly directly contact the staff.
