Super Mario World (Album)

The Super Nintendo game Super Mario World is already amazing, but what might have changed if there were no file size limitations back then? For starters, the iconic music might have been even better.

The truth is, we”ve been listening to “heavily compressed” music in this game for many years now. Today, though, we can finally hear the tracks from Super Mario World in all their glory. You see, talented dataminers have restored the songs in the game using full uncompressed samples.

Above is the overworld theme, courtesy of YouTube user Moola (via The Brickster).

(Is this what the songs were “supposed to sound like”? Hmmmmmaybe, but consider that Nintendo was probably picking which samples to use based on which ones sounded best after the SNES compressed them down to hell.)— Chris Kohler (

The same YouTube channel also has eight other Super Mario World tracks you can listen to. In addition to this, are some resampled songs from Nintendo 64 games like Donkey Kong 64 and Super Mario 64. What do you think? Tell us down below.

People have done this with both Super Mario 64 and Star Fox 64″s OSTs and they sound really good.

Then you have the fellow that remade the DKC Trilogy”s soundtracks which also sound fantastic. I think he created the music from scratch but it still sounds damn good.

SNES had the worst sound chip of consoles at the time. Everything was a trumpet, lol

Wow sounds much clearier and more native to the ears.

Sounds great, almost like a PS1 game in terms of the clarity.

This is amazing. I wish it actually sounded this good.

Publishers still skimp on audio to save a bit of coin.

coughSuper Smash Bros. Ultimatecough

That should have shipped on a 32GB cartridge due to the sheer quantity of music in the game (nearly 30 hours in the base game alone), but according to a data mine of the sizes of the game”s assets, 30ish hours of music was crammed down to a paltry 1.4GB (or maybe it as 1.7GB; either way, it”s laughably small). Even without knowing this (and I am no audiophile by any stretch), I noticed the lack of range in the audio, and it”s a travesty that one of the finest games ever made has been artificially hindered in this fashion as there was no reason to do so, especially considering that it is an “evergreen” title that will maintain its price for as long as the Switch continues to sell and has gone on to sell over 20 million units with no signs of slowing down.

Ubisoft also screwed over Just Dance as 2017 shipped on a 16GB cartridge, while opting for 8GB cartridges for subsequent releases (including 2021). Worse still is that Ubisoft”s decision to opt for a smaller cartridge for the physical release gets passed on to digital buyers as well. The irony is that the “last gen” Wii U versions (when they were still making them) would have looked and sounded better than their “next gen” counterparts.

And also ironic is that the Wii and Wii U installments of Smash Bros. would have superior audio quality to Smash Ultimate.

NinChocolate You probably never play anything on there other than Super Mario World then. Have a listen to these before you make that judgment.
