|McQueenMario's Fan Game|
|This is an EEA Inc. fan game made by McQueenMario.
|Release date|| 2011 |
Super Mario Nation is an upcoming 3D platforming Mario game for the Nintendo VR, developed by EEA Inc. The game is planned for late 2010 at the earliest. It features virtual reality controls, but is very similar to the gameplay of Super Mario 64.
Super Mario Nation features lots of virtual reality controls. These include jumping, running, using power-ups, etc. The gameplay is much like that of New Super Mario Bros. VR, only the player faces forward, instead of to the side. The Star Spin from Super Mario Galaxy returns in Super Mario Nation as well, only the Luma doesn't appear in Mario's hat. Most of the things that Mario can do are from Super Mario 64, since there is almost no limit in virtual reality. Mario can again, punch and kick and pick things up.
The game features gameplay that is very similar to the other 3D Mario games. It is however, quite different in a way. Mario is exposed to a total new version of the Mushroom Kingdom called Mushroom Island. Mario's hub is a new Peach's Castle area that includes a series of Warp Pipes, paintings, and secret areas. However, unlike the last games, Mario must venture out to the area and collect one Power Star in that area on his own before the warp will appear in Peach's Castle. Mario can automatically travel back to Peach's Castle anytime he wants. In access these areas first, Mario must solve different puzzles and collect Power Stars. One of the brand new features is the Mushmobile, a Mushroom-like car that Mario can use to travel at faster speeds. Although it is very similar to the Cosmic Spirit, Robud is a new feature in the game. Mario can call him one time per level to help him in different ways. For example, Mario can ride Robud, similar to Hoot the Owl (in Super Mario 64) to reach the Star. This varies in different levels, although if Mario gets help from Robud he will receive a Bronze Star instead of the normal Power Star. Missions also return from the other 3D Mario games. Although the game is not really based off Super Mario Galaxy, there is one space area in which Mario can take large jumps.
Mario gets a letter from Princess Peach, saying to come down to the castle to enjoy a cake, celebrating his anniversary. However, upon arriving, Bowser attacks in his R.O.B.O.O.T., a Wrecking Crane, which starts destroying Peach's Castle. Mario however, defeats R.O.B.O.O.T. to find that Bowser had already kidnapped Peach and was escaping. Just then, out of the wreckage of R.O.B.O.O.T. comes a little robot that Bowser was using to run it. He befriends Mario, revealing that his name is Robud, a lost little living alien robot that was kidnapped by Bowser. He agrees to help Mario if Mario will in return, help him get back home. Mario agrees and they collect their first Platinum Star.
Soon after leaving Toad Square, Mario comes across a very dark cave. Ivoiding Boos and Swoopers, Mario finds a secret enterance, where he discovers that his terrified little brother, Luigi, had been locked up by King Boo, yet again. After defeating the huge ghost, Mario unlocks the door and he and his brother set off again.
Back at the castle, Mario discovers a secret passage to the roof, where he uses 15 Power Stars, only to find a dozing Buzzy Beetle named Dozzer Beetle, Mario defeats this boss easily and reveals a mysterious key to Toad's door. Toad is happy to join the Mario bros. on their quest for Princess Peach.
When finding pardise, Mario, Luigi, and Toad also find that a secret lair for Bowser and his baddies. With help from Yoshi, Mario defeats Bowser again, who reveals a mysterious key. When getting back to the castle, another door appears, and Princess Peach comes out. She reveals that Bowser's real plan is to destroy Mushroom Island, and rebuild it as Koopa Island. Peach agrees to help Mario just this once, and joins their party.
More to come.

After leaving Dark-Lit Cave, Mario finds himself on a huge sand sprite of Small Mario from Super Mario Bros. The island itself is more like a mini-hub than a whole area, since it is small in size, and the only enemies on it are Crabbers. However, the true area in Bit Island is the underwater stage that appears to be a hidden cavern after Mario is sucked down a whirlpool into the "mission zone". There are only two true bosses in this area, because the third boss is Bowser, which is got to by talking to the Penguin and playing the pixel game, leading up to an underground tunnel to Bowser's Bad Sand, similar to the secret stages in Super Mario Sunshine. In the underground area, everything is made of blocks (or large pixels). Mario is introduced to Sub Coin, in which turns the Mushmobile into the Submobile. It can travel around underwater easily, and shoot torpedoes at Cheep-Cheeps and other marine foes. It also lights the way to the dark area where Mario meet the enormous blue Giga Unagi, that is defeated by destroying it's teeth without getting eaten. The second boss is a flying Cheep-Cheep called Fleep-Cheep that must be defeated by using the new Bubble Drop item and break the bubble onto this giant baddie, causing it to fall, thus getting mad. Reaching the fish three times is the difficulty, but Mario is then rewarded with a Platinum Star. Mario soon transports back to the Penguin on the 8-bit Mario, where he gets the World Map.

Bowser's Bad Sand
Only after Mario plays the Penguin's game, can he descover the first Bowser stage. Mario is sent to a strange space-like area, where sand rushs in the opposite direction of him, not to mention the annoying Lakitus and Spinies that get in his way. Half way down, Mario finds a sand-free section with his prehistoric pal, Yoshi and a checkpoint. Mario can then use the Dash Pepper on the extremely fast sand, until he gets to the Warp Pipe to Bowser's lair. Mario and Yoshi must first avoid Bowser's attacks and then battle in a classic Super Mario 64 style, swinging the Koopa around by the tail, into mines, only this time, with Yoshi's tongue. Upon doing this three times, Bowser leaves, and a strange Super Key is revealed, which ends up unlocking a secret door for Princess Peach!
