One of the most precious and intriguing features of video games, which has unfortunately been lost over time, were i secrets. When there was no Internet today and datamining, the only means available to discover easter eggs or hidden game contents was to explore for hours and hours, or chat with friends who had also purchased them. Now a quick Google search is enough to find guides or walkthroughs on anything, but often this is not true of older titles. And that's how, 24 years after the launch, we now discover that Luigi was present in Super Mario 64.

A recent leak has spread the whole thing on the Internet source code of the famous platformer, certainly a drama for Nintendo, but at the same time a gold mine for fans. A quick analysis has surfaced a complete 3D model of Luigi, which was originally planned to be a playable character. We know well that finally he never made his appearance, continuing to live in the shadow of his brother. Who knows if the source code will allow us to discover other Super Mario 64 secrets, but in the meantime, if you like leaks, we recommend that you also take a look at the confirmation of Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War, which came to us thanks to a package of Doritos.
