Random Game Facts – Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask

This one isn’t too terribly surprising. Nintendo has always loved to put little Easter eggs in their games which reference other games of theirs. There were the Mario paintings in Ocarina of Time, the Mario & Kirby enemies in Link’s Awakening, etc.

Click here to download Episode 10 of the GameSaga Podcast. Actraiser is one of my favorite
SNES games and IMO an underrated classic. It did get a sequel also on the SNES, but it was
inferior as they took out the simulation parts which are what made the game unique.
Hopefully one day Square Enix will make a 3rd one that takes it back to the series’ roots.
