Super Mario Galaxy Daredevil Mode is a difficulty hack for Super Mario Galaxy that forces you to beat the game under Daredevil conditions. It can be played legally on any homebrew-enabled Wii or Wii U console. No backup images or hardware modifications are required. I'd like to thank Lego Mario for providing translations in Spanish, French and Italian.

There's also a version for Super Mario Galaxy 2 which can be found here.
