3 Decades Later, New Secret Discovered in Original "Super Mario Bros."

Follow NextStop Magazine:


Nearly three decades since it was released in 1985, someone has found a new, seemingly unknown glitch in the original "Super Mario Bros." While it's yet to be confirmed by another source, this YouTube video was posted that adds to the list of documented glitches in the game that provide an unintended result.

To this day, there are still a large number of devotees that play the original on a regular basis. "Super Mario Bros." is probably the most iconic video game in history (sorry "Pong") and it's one that can certainly still be enjoyed today, especially by those who grew up playing it.

The point of interest here is not that you can get infinite lives, as there are already well-documented ways to make that happen, but that there's a glitch in the game whereby the beanstalk that was growing in Luigi's game in world 5-2 starts growing in Mario's world 1-2, and it went unnoticed (or at least not well-documented) for nearly 30 years. This is especially interesting considering the amount of time some have put in to discovering things just like this in this one particular game for nearly 30 years.

If anyone is able to verify this, please share in the comments below and we'll be sure to update this if we're able to find someone that's verified it as well.

EDIT:

Facebook user Link Willian Hyrule has claimed to confirm this on an original Nintendo with an original cartridge.
