Generate Randomized Game (v8.2.0)

Select Mode

  • Legacy mode from the original version of the randomizer. Plot progression is the same as the vanilla game; the map is not open from the start.
  • Characters join at vanilla spots.
  • Stars are awarded at their vanilla spots.
  • NOTE: This is a LEGACY mode! Many flags are not available in this mode, and new features are NOT being added to this mode! It is significantly different from the main open world mode, and has only been kept intact to preserve some of the experience of the original version of the randomizer made by abyssonym.
  • Non-linear progression, most of the map is open to you from the beginning.
  • Collect all the missing Star Pieces to access the final area (Bowser's Keep and/or Factory, depending on your flag choice).
  • Depending on your flag choice, those star pieces may not be on the bosses that originally have them.
  • The game is completed when you finish the final boss of the Factory.
