A Deleted Scene From Super Mario 64 Has Resurfaced From An Old Nintendo Report

The Nintendo Forest of Illusion preservation site, in collaboration with Render Archive and NintendoGuardiandiscovered what appears to be a cut stage from Super Mario 64.

The screenshot reel of a prerelease version of the game was found in the highly sought-after Nintendo Company Report from 1996.

The report, which has been carefully scanned and uploaded here, includes the company’s standard annual roundup, along with accompanying images of Nintendo’s star roster and various consoles, including the Nintendo 64 and the Virtual Boy doomed.

Eurogamer Newscast: Was Nintendo Direct and PlayStation State of Play a disappointment?

But the most interesting part of the report is the page that shows various screenshots of Nintendo 64 B-roll footage from 1995. It’s here that we see stills of a never-before-seen ghost scene.

Forest of Illusion combined these stills into a GIF so we could get a better idea of ​​what the gameplay would have looked like.

However, most of the report’s text is in Japanese and not in a machine-readable format, which makes it difficult to paste into a machine translator.

Still, it’s pretty cool to see some new treats from a game that’s been thoroughly broken down and reviewed.
