Super Mario 64 is 24 years old and fans have developed some very strange ideas over the decades. From the missing Luigi “L is real” theory to the more sinister “Wario Apparition”, Super Mario 64 is absolutely plagued by conspiracy theories, creepypastas and decades-long mysteries.
Last year the source code for Super Mario 64 was reverse-engineered by fans. If you were wondering “what good is that?”, well it means you can do all sorts of things with the game. Like get it running on a PS2.
These big Nintendo leaks aren’t just for curiosity’s sake; there’s a real practical element to them as well, like the fact modders have been able to find lost and unused enemies in titles like Super Mario 64 and get them back in the game.
