Super Mario 64 has been a beloved classic since its release back in 1996. The game brought Mario into a full 3D environment, and started his 3D platforming series. While Super Mario Sunshine followed up the game in 2001, a true sequel comparable to the original was never created. For some time, Super Mario 64 2 was said to be in development, but nothing ever came out of that project. Now over 15 years later, Super Mario Star Road fills the role for a highly requested sequel.
