Video: Lost Super Mario 64 Enemy “Motos” Restored Through Hacking
As many of you know, Nintendo recently suffered a major leak of the source codes for many of their classic titles, including Super Mario 64.
Predictably, hackers and dataminers have been combing through the code for interesting finds, one of which is a previously unseen enemy called a “Motos”. This enemy has a similar design and behavior to King Bob-omb, but does not appear at all in the final version of the game.
SM64 hacker Arthurtilly413 has managed to restore this enemy into the game through hacking, and you can watch the Motos in action via the clip they posted below:
I've fully restored the code of an enemy in SM64 previously unknown, dubbed "Motos" from the game files. This information was recovered from the recent leak. Motos is reminiscent of King Bob-omb mixed with a bully. pic.twitter.com/ZWH4QfPruJ
