Super Mario Bros. 3 released in 1988 for the Nintendo Entertainment System, and as one would expect from a game with the mustachioed plumber on the box, it was and still stands tall as one hell of a game. Interestingly enough, it’s chock-full of secrets, one of which has been discovered very recently.

Twitter user @BoundaryBreak has used an out-of-bounds glitch that throws players into a minigame stage from Mario Bros. where you have to collect coins. Upon winning the game, the player character will swap over to Luigi, who will then appear on the mini-map. Many have pointed out that the discovery of this stage has been made before, although this time, it appears in a completely different section of the map.

It’s certainly fascinating that even a game as old and as loved as Super Mario Bros. 3 has undiscovered glitches that can be used to change key elements of the experience.

In related news, Masayuki Uemura, creator of NES and SNES, recently passed away, leaving a long-standing legacy of excellent hardware behind him- read more on that through here.
