It seems that Super Mario 64 It continues to leave us news decades after its premiere. Today we bring you a detail that will undoubtedly be curious to you, although it is not present in the version of Super Mario 64 DS!
Super Mario 64
This is a peculiar detail related to the animations. In the video game, celebrating takes priority over character death. If Mario is in the middle of a celebration for getting a star and something should kill him at that moment, he becomes temporarily immune.
The effects of the item or situation that would cause your death are applied only after I finish celebrating. That is, the celebration animation protects Mario, preventing him from dying until it ends. This curious detail shows how the game gives the player a margin of grace during key moments, putting success above failure, even momentarily…
Here you can see it:
In Super Mario 64, celebrating has precedence over death. If Mario would die while celebrating obtaining a star, he is instead made immune, and the effects of whatever killed him are applied immediately after he finishes celebrating. pic.twitter.com/zbL98muNSf
