By now you should have already heard of several mysteries by Nintendo - such as the star status in Super Mario 64 (Not sure about DS), or the dog bone in Golden Sun: The Lost Age.
Here is one of them: The Mario Sunshine mystery.
Go to Noki Bay (Mare Bay in Japanese) Shine #3. You'll go into a bottle automatically, and in the bottom of the bottle, there're some sort of premises (maybr some ruins) in the bottom. On one side of it, you can see 2 holes you can go in, with one of them has a door at the end:
Now go into the passage and reach the end. You cannot open the door by any mean, but if you press Y (C would not work) and zoom it to certain position, you'll find a book inside. You can't get the book, but it's there!
Nobody is sure about what this book is. (In my viewpoint, Nintendo will, once again, refuse to answer.)

The entire storyline, or lack of, in Sunshine is a Nintendo mystery - how did Boswer Jr. get E. Gadd's paintbrush? How did he get a magical hankerchief-type thing the turns him into Shadow Mario? How did Boswer get so big at the end? And what is FLUDD doing there? All questions that will never have an answer because nobody will ever really care enough, aside from a few bad fan-fiction writers and a bunch of people who will blame it all on the existence of Petey Pirahna.
The biggest mystery is why Nintendo keeps on making "Mario Party" games...
Solved! Because people keep buying them. However... that opens up another mystery... WHY do people keep buying them? (Answer: for my collection, of course! But why everyone else!?)
There's the glass bottles on top of the pipe in Goldeneye, not to mention the briefcase you can collect but not use, and the island you can see but not reach. Many of them may have had something to do with parts of the game that were since taken out... but not all of them.
The star statue in SM64 doesn't seem like a mystery to me. I am now convinced that the plaque says "Eternal Star" rather than "L is real Star"... but quite why it then appears in Ocarina of Time as well is beyond me.
I want to hear more of these, though. I love this kind of thing. They're as fun to find as a really obscure cameo

The mysteries from the original "Banjo-Kazooie" were suposed to originally be unlockable thingies when some sort of password link-up thing would occur with "Banjo-Tooie" - never quite happened as planned.
Some of those mysterious items appeared in the sequel, if you were willing to look, and they could be used for some little power-ups if I remember correctly.
Still, they were very bizarre before the sequel came out.

I love these little mysteries, but they can be a bit annoying if there's no logical explanation.
Here's my favourite one: Although I don't have the game, everyone has heard of the infamous cheeses in Perfect Dark. Apparently there was chunks of cheddar hidden all over the place. Gotta Smell Em All!
I'm Oldmanrupee over on Deviantart.com, Oldmanrupee on the MS Paint Adventures website (check out my forum adventure there!) and @oldmanrupee AND @oldmanmystery over on Twitter.
@oldmanmystery likes to research mysterious and odd historical events, anything from the Roswell incident to King Tut's curse. He has a growing timeline of these events at www.tinyurl.com/hystory
Yes, cheese blocks are hidden in practically every stage in Perfect Dark. One in each stage. I hear that Rare was planning to use those as cheats, but ran out of time and blocked them all off. Some are pretty hard to find, too...may try that again, someday.
Personally, one of my favorite mysteries is where in the world Bowser Jr. came from. He magically popped up for SMS. I think he was in Lemmy's bouncy balls in SMB3. lol And of course, why Nintendo rarely uses the 7 Koopa kids now. I like them far more than Bowser Jr. And hey, who's the mom of these 8 Koopalings, eh? Bowser? Who? lol Ah, too much fun. I didn't know about the book in SMS...quite interesting. I may have to dig around in some other games to see what I can find.

nocturnal YL: I'm… not sure if I'll read your spoiler discussions. I don't think I'll get the chance to play this, but at the same time, I'm not entirely sure I won't, either.

nocturnal YL: I have yet another pile of games waiting to be played. Due to various circumstances (I'm busy at work, this month's weekends are filled with family events, and Project DIVA Mega Mix just got new DLC), I'm not able to play them yet.

nocturnal YL: I'm currently at 34 Switch games played. I've been thinking about my Switch review videos and I'll make another at 36 or 40 games. Leaning towards 36.

nocturnal YL: I actually wanted to remake the older ones as well. I didn't notice that the 2nd video had volume issues in the audio until I have my current PC.

Nester the Lark: If you're thinking of playing Xenoblade Chronicles 3, then definitely *don't* read the late-game spoilers I posted.

Shrikeswind: So I assume everyone here's heard the news but for those who haven't, Queen Elizabeth died today.

Shrikeswind: I learned on the way home from work today - I stopped in at a McDonalds for lunch, was checking the news in line, and...well, there it was.

Nester the Lark: I knew it was serious when I heard the whole royal family dropped whatever they were doing to be by her side.

Nester the Lark: I'm not British, but there's never not been a Queen of England during my lifetime (and indeed, most of a lifetime before that), so even though I knew it had to happen eventually, it still feels a little weird.

Nester the Lark: I guess there is still the "Queen Consort," but I'm talking about how there's a King now.
Sept 9, 2022 9:13:49 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Well, a lot to take in there. I'll post my impressions either later or tomorrow.

Nester the Lark: The English lip sync in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has spoiled me. I was hoping Fire Emblem: Engage would have it, too, but comparing the English and Japanese trailers, it doesn't seem to be the case.
Sept 19, 2022 8:44:03 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should create a thread for Fire Emblem: Engage, or just talk about it in the general Fire Emblem thread...
Sept 19, 2022 8:55:44 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Nintendo has had a good rhythm with their releases. When I'm tired of Xenoblade, they release a new Fire Emblem. When I'm tired of Fire Emblem, they release a new Xenoblade. When I'm tired of both, they release a new Zelda.

nocturnal YL: Super Mario Galaxy 2 is a relatively new game in terms of TAS, so it usually doesn't look as impressive as Super Mario 64. But sometimes we get stuff like this: Cosmic Cove Green Star 1 in 20.58s

nocturnal YL: I'm about to start on my next review video. I'll use the same 1080p-in-1440p format (so that the caption is separate from the game clips), and I'm wondering if I can make better use of the left and right edges. I probably can't think of anything though.

Nester the Lark: Apologies for my silence lately. I have a lot going on IRL right now.
Oct 17, 2022 8:32:08 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I'm not busy or anything, but I don't really have anything substantial to say either. I'm in Fire Emblem mood now, playing Warriors 3H and really looking forward to Engage, but I'll save discussions for later.

nocturnal YL: Also in case people don't read Nester's Twitter, his issue is that he has lost Internet connection after moving to a place no ISP seems to serve.
