    I knew most of these. But I'm pretty sure it's because GR recycles this article every 6 months or so. Maybe one day there will be actual news from Nintendo.

    On the Yoshi slide: Game Freak made Yoshi as a way to further finance Pokemon. Every pre-Pokemon game Game Freak made was to help keep Pokemon alive.

    I knew a lot of these surprisingly. Although the biggest shocker for me was that they own the Mariners. WOW.

    One thing about the Metroids in Kid Icarus: Uprising, they were in the original game as well. Also, the original Kid Icarus and Metroid shared more than just a development team, they also shared a game engine, as well as both being originally designed for use on the Famicom Disk System which allowed for them to save. The password systems were added when they were ported to cartridges due to a lack of reliable battery-backed memory systems.

    Yep - the 8-Bit Nintendo days serve as a source of lots of interesting trivia that both brings back memories and informs younger generations who missed out on the 8-Bit craze... such as; Nintendo released a total of 35 games between the launch of the NES in October 1985 and holiday 1986 with the biggest seller being Super Mario Bros created by Mr. Miyamoto. Which game featuring player-editable levels and also directed by Mr. Miyamoto earned the #2 spot during that same time period? (answer below) In 1987 Mr. Miyamoto direct the development of Nintendo’s mega-hit The Legend of Zelda which sold three times as many games as Nintendo Gameboy-creator Gumpei Yokoi’s sci-fi hit Metroid released in that same year. Nintendo’s head of R&D3 Genyo Takeda also created a game that sold less than Miyamoto’s Zelda but Mr. Takeda’s game became the #2 selling game of 1987 – what was Mr. Takeda’s game? (answer below) Spelled backwards to avoid spoilers... ekibeticxE was the #2 selling game in 1986 !!tuO hcnuP s'nosyT ekiM was the #2 selling game in 1987 Thx for playing ; )
