Paper Mario Hidden Messages Discovered After 16 Years

Paper Mario originally released on the Nintendo 64 back in 2000 (Japan) and 2001 (North America). It’s been 16 years or so since that release and new things are still being discovered. One recent discovery was a new glitch called “log skip”, which allows you to access southern Toad Town before you’re supposed to, something that is a speedrunners dream. However, there is an apparent unintended discovery form this glitch that wasn’t present in the English version of the game and thus, went unnoticed until just now.

In the Japanese version of the game, there is some additional dialogue that basically shows the recognition of the characters that you’re accessing them too soon and that it’s very clearly a bug that should be reporting. It’s rather interesting this text was included in the retail release in Japan and it makes you wonder what other possible future glitches may uncover. YouTuber Stryder7x created a video showing off all the new text:
