This is the place to post any gaming facts you have learned. I'll post a few of mine.

-The Pokemon Mewtwo is based off Gigue/Giygas from MOTHER 1.
-Sonic was never intended to be added in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, however he was added near the very end of SSBB's development due to an immerse fan demand.
-Files in the New Play Control! Pikmin games imply that both remakes of Pikmin 1 and 2 were initially meant to be in a single disc.
-Parts of K.K. Country from the Animal Crossing series shares the same melody as Choco Mountain from Mario Kart 64.

Did you know, Sonic's first appearance wasn''t in Sonic 1 for the Genesis.
That Knuckles was originally Green, not Red

The majority of Kid Icarus's development was done in about 3 months, with people sometimes working overnight or staying in the office for days at a time.

Did you know that Kirby was Pink in the box art for his first release in Japan, but white in NA?

Xenoblade Chronicles was, at one point, going to be a turn-based RPG. The director of the game thought the Monado's seeing into the future ability would be too hard to utilize this way, though.

Also, they struggled to make Shulk's character likable, for a while.

Bowser, King Dedede and Mewtwo were planned to be in SSB64, but were cut due to time constraints.

In an updated Japanese version of the NES, there was a special controller which allowed you to use a microphone. In an updated version of Zelda, using the microphone was the only way to defeat a certain enemy.

To add to your SSB64 fact, NUH, King Dedede was left out partially because Masahiro Sakurai didn't want to over-represent his own series, Kirby.

Did you know, the Konami code can work in the DS Game Contra if you tap the touch screen where necessary.
Did you know, that the Oddessy, a early home console that had roughly 15 games built in, ran on 6 C batteries.

Source? I've heard of a chromosome in Hedgehogs called Sonic Hedgehog, but never human.

The Guardian? I personally wouldn't trust them 24/7, and I thought for sure that SHH was in hedgehogs, not humans.

You can find it everywhere on google, The Guardian was just the first one to pop up.

The Wonderful 101 originally started off as a Smash Bros. styled game, having 100 Nintendo heroes instead of completely original ones.
