Just when you were getting over the fact that you could play Sonic the Hedgehog games on Nintendo platforms, you can now play an original Super Mario game on a Sony PSP.
While it is not made by Nintendo, Super Mario Mini is a beautiful hombrew effort by Arguru. This is by far the best and most commendable homebrew project that I have seen in a long time. From what I have seen, it looks very professional and take full advantage of the PSP’s wide screen. The graphical sprite style looks very similar to the Mario remakes on Super Mario All-Stars on the SNES.
Keep in mind that this project was coded from the ground up instead of being a port of an existing game or en emulator. There is also a custom level editor included an many Mario fans will get a big kick out of it. There are also a lot of new features in the new version 2.
You should be able to get it to run on any PSP via the eBoot Loader
You can download the game here.
