Great, with one anachronistic flaw

Reviewed By: zoinknoise on 04 Jul 2020

this is a great piece of work that cleans up the text and graphics in SMB2 wonderfully. however, it does contain one flaw––the change of “Princess” to “Peach” in the end credits. Peach was always referred to as “Princess Toadstool” in the overseas versions of Mario games until 1993, and most people weren’t exposed to the change until Mario 64 in 1996. so i would have preferred that particular change to be rolled back. otherwise, an excellent hack.
