Doom developer shows Super Mario Bros. 3 demo for PC in 1990




Doom and Commander Keen developer John Romero has put a video online showing a demo from 1990’s Super Mario Bros. 3 for the PC. Romero has uploaded the video to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the game Commander Keen.

Romero indicates that it is a demo that made ​​his studio Ideas from the Deep in 1990 to show how Nintendo Super Mario Bros 3 would look like on the PC. The demo’s graphics were not as nice as in the original Super Mario Bros. 3, and the controls were not as fluent, but the demo does show that the will to Nintendo games to bring the PC longstanding presence.

Nintendo is clearly not in the offer to bring the game to the PC discussed. Ideas from the Deep is later renamed id Software and has become familiar with games like Doom, Wolfenstein, Quake and Commander Keen. The studio is currently working on a new Doom for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The desire to play games on something other than the original Nintendo Consoles still exists. GameCube and Wii games are made ​​playable thanks to the Dolphin emulator on PC, and also to emulate the Wii U will work. Could in October the Wii emulator CEMU just the menu of Mario Kart 8 show, is now showing a new video game as somewhat playable.

The quality of the game that delivers the CEMU is far from comparable to the quality of the Wii itself. So the graphics are less, the game runs much slower and audio is not yet available. The difference between the old and the new version of the emulator is significant and shows that perhaps in the future the Wii games can be playable on the PC.
