Luigi has been hiding in the source code of Super Mario 64 for 24 years

You’ve no doubt seen online that the source code for a number of prolific Super Nintendo and Nintendo 64 games has been discovered and leaked. One smaller thing that’s interesting about these leaks is that the mighty Luigi, Mario’s much-loved brother, has been hiding in the source code of the beloved Super Mario 64 for a whopping 24 years. In an older interview Mr. Miyamoto stated that he would have liked Luigi as a second playable character in the game. Fast forward to today and he’s been discovered in the actual game’s source code!

I never knew you could get theow those doors with zero stars. And the never ending stairs they went backwards jumps and stuff to get through those doors.

    That was impressive now 24 years later still some new secrets.

    I know people is overhyped for this but why anybody is talking about the changes for the world map of Yoshi’s Island?

    The 2 different prototypes of Star Fox 2

    And Bowser having a full body sprite in Super Mario World?

    1. There’s a lot of stuff to go over, like the beta garchomp design, beta Link sprites from several cancelled projects, Mario Kart prototypes, etc. I’m just waiting for someone to unearth Smash secrets.
