More evidence for the method of unlocking NES Golf on Switch, includes audio from Iwata

Posted on September 20, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, Videos

The way in which NES Golf on Switch can be unlocked came to light yesterday. Even so, it almost seemed too crazy to be true. Additional videos and images have surfaced over the past several hours, and with all of the evidence out there, it’s looking more and more like the discovery is real.

One such video is below. You’ll notice that it even includes audio from late Nintendo president Satoru Iwata saying “chokusetsu” (“direct”). With the unlock date being July 11 – the date of his passing – it seems like whoever came up with this went all out in honoring him.

      I just want to know how Nintendo is going to announce this.

      • Ikr? i guess they will wait for some big anniversary related to iwata and then announce it

          That’s 11 july then, his death. But I could see Golf being the free VC game for everyone

    I find the choice of game very interesting. To my understanding (correct me if I’m wrong), the first NES game that Satoru Iwata programmed for was Pinball, not Golf.

    Golf does have a stronger lasting legacy on gaming as a whole, admittedly.
