ONM Remembered – #405

“No, no, NO! Luigi DIDN’T appear in SM 64, despite all those pesky rumours on the Internet.”


from Official Nintendo Magazine issue 78 (March 1999)
(big ups to oldgamemags.com for the scans!)

I can only assume “Heroes” was an ongoing feature throughout ONM for a while if this was the tenth instalment, but this was the only one I had in my collection. Presumably offering quick history lessons on notable video game characters, this gives up a quick catch-up on Luigi, everyone’s favourite second fiddle. It’s a worthy little read if just for the crushing realisation that, no, Luigi is not secretly buried somewhere inside of Super Mario 64. Stop looking. (didn’t stop me from trying, though!)
