2017 Super Mario Galaxy 2 Remaster Pack with New Textures and Environment Maps

Super Mario Galaxy 2 running at 4K60 on DirectX 12 with high resolution textures, specular maps, displacement maps, and normal maps which all make use of Ishiiruka’s new rim lighting, shading, tesselation, and geometry features.

These advanced graphical features are brand new to emulation and allow for generational leaps equal to and often surpassing the quality of the current official retail remasters redeveloped and resold every new generation on gaming consoles.
