Super Metroid It is one of the key titles of the Super Nintendo catalog for many reasons. However, among the thousands of dangers that are hidden on the planet Zebes, there is also space for love, Literally Although it is practically impossible.
The author of this report is Yasuhiko Fujii, a programmer of the classic SNES metroid, who admitted this romantic Easter egg during an interview published in the book Game Shokunin Vol. 1 of 2007 and which was recently restored and translated from shmuplations.
The content of the same, as outlined by GameXplain, is just two words that were traced on the screen without the players or Nintendo itself knowing about them: Keiko Love!Be Keiko then a pair of young Fujii.
According to Fujie himself, these words were traced in the air by the two Evires who fled the enemy just before the fight against Daygon.
But the best of all is what motivated him to have this little detail with Keiko: how he spent a lot of time working, barely seeing it, so he managed to program this statement of love during development. Sneak!
In fact, just before the fight with Draygon, the head of Maridia, there is a group of Evir enemies who make a kind of "dance." His movements actually capture the letters of a sentence in English: "Keiko Love"! Keiko was the name of a girl I went to.
I worked all the time with my work and I did not see it so much, so at night, when everyone was asleep at the office, I stole a moment and added the code!
The little Evir dance was not written in planning documents, or anywhere else, so I remember my heart was a thousand times an hour as I coded it, with the fear of being discovered. But in the end nobody found out. Now is not a romantic story? (Laughs)
Result? You can just check to 2:10:00 for another long game. It is true that the flight of these enemies has never been too normal. And now we have why.
Obviously, there are more romantic ways to show someone their affection, but of course it is very complicated.
