Super Mario 64 on the N64 was a milestone in two histories. On the one hand for the Italian plumber himself, on the other hand for video game history in general.

Hardly any other game has divided the spirits as much, and the question of whether Mario has to be 2D or 3D still gives me sleepless nights. (Just yesterday again... 🥱)

But no matter how, technically the N64 conversion is something special, and one should assume that the engineers in 1996 got the maximum out of the N64 hardware with optimal code.

In fact, this doesn't seem to be the case, because Kaze Emanuar has not only completely reverse-engineered the game with hard work over several months, but also almost completely rewrote and optimized it.

The result is worth seeing as well as interesting, and Kaze has summarized the entire process in an absolutely worth watching video on my favorite TV channel.
