Fact: Due to the Monster Hunter series being so popular on the PS2 and PSP, Monster Hunter Tri was originally supposed to be a PS3 game, however, due to it being too expensive to develop such a large game on that system, they shifted it to the less powerful, but cheaper to develop, Wii system.

Y'know, I always noticed that the "visages" were the exact same expression. However, this only counts for the 8-bit original and the Game Boy Color remake Super Mario Bros. Deluxe.

FACT2.In the original Super Smash Brothers Melee, the Princess Daisy trophy had a mysterious third eye on the back of its head.

Chrono Trigger's main character is called Crono instead of Chrono (without the "h"), this was because it would save a litlle extra space on the cartridge. Also Ayla, the cave girl character in the game seems to be heavily inspired by a very similar literary character in the Earth's Children novels by Jean M. Auel, which are about life in the prehistory.

My name used to be Crono and people said on this site I spelt it wrong. Silly geese.

Just for you.
