Super Mario 128 Central is an independent Super Mario fan site that has been online since August 29, 1998. Originally known as Super Mario 64 Central (SM64C) until 2001, we were one of the biggest and most popular Mario websites on the internet, but we ended up being an 18-wheeler going right off a cliff.
In early 2018, we finally unveiled a new responsive web design that will work on mobile devices, and turned the website in a blog-style format that is updated more regularly.
The goal of this website is to be an alternative voice that serves as a niche between the corporate gaming media and the free-for-all of social media.
SM128C is a Canadian-based website.
