Facebook / Twitter / YouTube / Instagram / News / Discord / Forums / Telegram / WhatsApp The content that is discarded during the development of a video game can represent impressive amounts and it is that the final product shows how little actually survived the process. The stories about the creation of some video games, as well as their code, are an inexhaustible source of anecdotes and testimonials and now that a new installment of Super Mario Strikers is on its way to Switch, someone decided to venture into the code of the first Nintendo GameCube game alone. to find strange things.
Super Mario Strikers debuted in 2005 and holds many secrets
The person in charge of the Twitter account, Dogon McBanana, a historian of Super Mario Bros., shared images of the designs he found in the code of Super Mario Strikers, an installment that debuted on the Nintendo GameCube in 2005. As shown in the screenshots, it seems that at some point the game considered a series of generic character designs inspired by a captaincy system, that is, if Mario was chosen, the rest of the team would be made up of characters with a similar design. The detail in this case is that the designs were not completed and what exists in the code are strange figures, humanoid type, without eyes, without a mouth, something in a certain sense terrifying.
Was digging through the game’s files on a whim, and evidently the final build of Super Mario Strikers on Gamecube just has an entire team’s worth of generic Mario style humans and a whole bunch of other unused stuff that I’ve never seen anybody talk about? ?

Although the designs inspired by Mario are disturbing due to the state in which they were left, the reality is very different in terms of the characters that would make up the Luigi or Donkey Kong teams, since their designs had a more advanced degree of design. Also, the investigation of this enthusiast discovered that at some point a Shu Guy was thought of to take charge of the cameras, but in the end automated parts were chosen, so the character did not even go to the bench.
It seems like at some point each captain was going to have their own unique team of sidekicks. DK has a team of other Kong-like characters, for example. Luigi also has a dupe of himself for his sidekick, likely placeholder. They all have textures, but they’re in a weird format. pic.twitter.com/kaJXoat76o— Dogon McBanana (@Dogon_McBanana) February 25, 2022
Currently, fans of the franchise are waiting for June 10 because that day Mario Strikers Battle League will debut, a perfect occasion since we are in a football year with the celebration of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and Nintendo does not want to be left behind in one of the most important sporting events .
