Did y'all know that in the beloved SEGA puzzle game series, Puyo Puyo, the witch character's birthday is October 31st? Well now you know! ;)

The concept of Splatoon originally started out with being a simple shooter game with...tofu block characters, yep, simple grey tofu blocks with turrets that shot some kind of grey ink? That got scrapped and replaced with something called generic humans, and then generic humans with capes lol. That idea was also thrown out for something small and furry. Rabbits! The rabbit idea in Splatoon had lots of concept art and a couple of playable models, but it became weird with how they were shooting ink and how they'd be able to scale walls. The idea to put various Mario characters in Splatoon instead flopped pretty quickly. The final character concept was squids, anthropomorphic squids that looked kinda weird. Finally the kid/squid form was implemented and that solved the problem of players not being able to climb walls, and made shooting ink more reasonable since the characters were squids.

Did y'all know that Mortal Kombat II actually got banned in 1 of the European countries*? I just heard about it from this YouTube video:








*In Germany to be specific.

Was it banned because it was too graphic or something like that? I could see a game getting banned in a country simply for being too profane.

It was banned for containing gory violence? But I also read the ban was lifted in March?

Super Mario Bros. 2 is actually Super Mario Bros. - The Lost Levels. The game we say that is Super Mario Bros. 2 is Super Mario USA, which is a carbon copy of Doki Doki Panic;

Hitmontop is from my country, Brazil (CAPOERA YEAH); - Pokémon
Brawl Stars's Colt, one of the first brawlers, was inspired by Star Lord. This is because the original idea of Brawl Stars was in a space theme.

There you go. The weirdest things I didn't know.

Sure, there was some differences, both visual and some misc like the run button thing, but the game essence is still the same. I stand corrected. Not a carbon copy, but like those low-effort Mario hacks that only replace some things on its levels.

Bump!



Can we include some things we members of the SMBX community know that others don't know about the video gam devs? Because 1 of the things I'm gonna of the 3 things of "I didn't know about till later in mah life" list might blow y'all's minds. ^-^"


  • Before the creation of the 1981 arcade game, Donkey Kong and joining (Nintendo), Shigeru Miyamoto was a manga artist.

  • Me and mah Onee-san (mah 30 year old older sister) were big Zelda fans, and we didn't know that the Zelda Oracle of Ages & Oracle of Seasons games for Gameboy Color were both developed by Capcom*, with (Nintendo)'s & Miyamoto's blessings.

  • 1 of the 2001 Nintendo Gamecube launch games, Luigi's Mansion, was both originally planned to be rated "13+" during development, AND ( P.S. y'all know what I'm talking about if y'all saw the beta game over screen) was suppose to have a freaking time limit and a nightmare-ish game over scene. :o


*And still to this day, she stills didn't know that. :/

I didn't know that Daisy and Luigi were a couple, I got kinda surprised when I noticed that, specially when I saw the Daisy Circuit in MKWii
Did Nintendo actually outright say that? I mainly am unsure because Mario and Daisy are what appears to be a couple in the original Super Mario Land.
It's most likely a thought of mine then
No. Daisy Circuit proves Luigi is Daisy's plumber. They must have made this change for Luigi and lefting Peach for Mario, like, to give appreciation to Luigi..

It is strange for me to ban it because of containing gory violence and then lift it back. Honestly, I don't understand such games. Indeed, many of my friends like to play fights, but it must be designed so that it would not be so disgusting and cruel. That's why I personally prefer such games as league of legends. I even found where to buy a lol account for it. Now I can play from different versions, and I made other heroes that can earn additional rewards and levels. It is really an excellent possibility.

Speaking about the Mortal Kombat ii ban thing, it was actually Mortal Kombat 2 that got banned in Germany. Don't let the "II" fool you.

Super Mario Bros. 3 was created overnight. Here's what's interesting. To do this, they ported Super Mario Bros. 3 to the PC in parts by running the game on the console and studying the map. No one was supposed to know about it. I've played the D&D Guide in different series. But there hasn't been that kind of excitement in a long time. First of all, I want to point out that translating something this big is titanic work. And Hobby World's hard work on this should definitely bring new players and dungeon masters into the community, for which I am very grateful. I didn't learn English right away, so I'm immensely excited to play such cool stuff.
