Oh, you cuh-RAYzay hackers! What magic will you perform next?

Some rosy-cheeked tinkerers have decided to hack the data for Super Mario Galaxy 2 to create a suite of custom levels called Super Mario Galaxy 2.5. The hack isn't finished yet, but you can see the fruits of their labor so far in the video above. And is that a remake of Bob-Omb Battlefield from Super Mario 64 that I spy?

Super Mario Galaxy 2 is one of the greatest 3D platformers of all time, so any modification may lack the high level of polish we're accustomed to. Nonetheless, it's fun to see what the fans can come up with. With that said, if you own a retail copy of Galaxy 2, just follow the instructions on the YouTube page to soft mod your Wii so that it can play the one-level demo.
