Nintendo’s 2020 gigaleak, which exposed mind-blowing models for Yoshi’s Island, Super Mario Kart, Star Fox 2 and more, likewise included the source code for Super Mario Advance – a video game that recycles samples from 1990 SNES traditional Super Mario World.
Twitter user The Brickster discovered for lots of instruments in Super Mario World, which assisted other tinkerers discover the source for those samples.
With the source samples found, deal with bring back Koji Kondo’s renowned 30-year-old music started. The Brickster’s good friends recreated the tracks that were compressed to deal with the SNES utilizing the initial, lossless synths.
For anybody curious regarding how these findings were done, its in fact rather easy. Know how the Gigaleak had source code for Super Mario Advanced?

The brought back Super Mario World OST is up on The Brickster’s YouTube channel. Here’s a bit:
The brought back music supplies an indicator, possibly, of what Kondo’s music may have seemed like if it had not been constrained by the SNES hardware. However, some have actually stated the brought back music sounds even worse than the initial lo-fi music upon which they are based, with excessive reverb.
The Brickster resolved this criticism on Twitter, stating the repair is a what if? workout provided for enjoyable.
“… I see where you are originating from,” The Brickster stated. “Truthfully, these tracks were most likely not created with the complete spots in mind. These are just things we are providing for enjoyable, as a ‘what if’ kinda thing.”
What if Kondo wasnt restricted to the little sound ram size, and he could utilize noises to their max? We might never ever understand if he did, naturally, because no demonstration variations of tracks for Super Mario World were ever formally launched, however these I believe would resemble such tracks. 2/2
