Super Mario 64 and the coin that’s impossible to collect

Super Mario 64 has a number of impossible coins – that is, coins that are impossible to collect. Well, it looks like the mystery around one of them has been solved 20 years after the groundbreaking platformer came out.

YouTube channel UncommentatedPannen documents an impossible coin found in the huge version of Tiny-Huge Island. In one section of the level, there is a line of four coins. So what? Well, everywhere else in the game, coins line up horizontally in fives.

So what happened to the fifth coin in this particular line? UncommentatedPannen explains that the fifth coin immediately despawns after Mario comes close enough to spawn it because the spawn marker is positioned too far below the slope.

New Zelda 30th anniversary amiibo will work with Breath of the Wild

Four amiibo figures based on classic Legend of Zelda games to celebrate the franchise’s 30th anniversary are on the way.

Similar to Super Mario’s 30th anniversary amiibo, the headliner is a 3D version of 8-bit Link from the NES original. Another is based on Ocarina of Time’s Link, and the final two are Toon Link and Toon Zelda from The Wind Waker. All four will be released on December 2nd.

All four will work the same as existing Link, Toon Link and Zelda amiibo figures from the Super Smash Bros Collection, and join this year’s in offering undisclosed “special functionality” with the next Zelda game, Breath of the Wild, when it comes to Wii U and NX next year.
