If you ever stop to reflect, even remotely, on the reality of the universe game (Which we seriously don’t recommend), you’ve probably got the simplest question: why mario Injured when a gomba Does it hurt him?

You can find that in the relevant section below satodirector Shiro Maury and game designers Koichi Hayashida Comment on this new and exciting addition.
sato: We talked about hardware evolution earlier; I heard someone ask Miyamoto-san because mario is damaged when it collides with a gomba Beside the main game SUPER MARIO BROS. He apparently responded: “Because gombas They bite him.”
die: Although that was happening, due to hardware limitations at the time, the graphics weren’t capable of displaying that level of detail.
sato: That’s how it is. But now we can show those expressions.
Hayashida: Loss gombas They have a biting expression in moments of loss.
sato: Yes, and when they bite you, they do it with a smile on their face! (laughter)

Editor’s note: I don’t know if I have the Mandela effect but, I think it was always obvious to me. Maybe I read it in a magazine at the time, but it’s incredible that now we actually see animation.
