Super Metroid This is one of the key titles of the Super Nintendo catalog for several reasons. But among the thousands of dangers that are hidden in the planet Zebes, there is room for love. Literally Although the finding is virtually impossible.
The author of this message is Yasuhiko Fujii, a programmer of the classic SNES metroidvania, who recognized this romantic egg during an interview published in the book Game Shokunin Vol.1 from 2007 and which was recently recovered and translated by shmplations.
The content of the same, as stated in GameXplain, are just two words that were displayed on the screen, without players, or Nintendo himself knew: Keiko Love!To be Keiko then a few young Fujii.
According to Fuji himself, these words in the air tracked down two Evirs, flying under the enemy, just before the fight against Daygon.
But the best of all was what motivated him to have this little detail with Keiko: because he worked a lot of time, he could hardly see it, so he programmed this declaration of love during his development. Sneak!
In fact, just before the fight with Draygon, the boss of Maridia, there is a group of Evir's enemies who make some kind of "dance". His movements actually trace the letters of the sentence in English: "Keiko Love"! Keiko was the name of the girl I met then.
I was always busy with work and I could not see much, so at night, while everyone was burning in the office, I stole the moment and added this code!
This little dance, Evir, was not written in the planning documents or anywhere else, so I remember that my heart was a thousand an hour when I encoded it, with concern to discover me. But in the end, nobody found him. Is not that a romantic story? (laughs)
The result? You can check it briefly on the 2:10:00 mark on the next longplay. It is true that the flight of these enemies was never too normal. And now we have reasons.
It is clear that there are more romantic ways to show your affection for someone, but it is of course very complicated to do it in a more subtle way.
