Mysterious Creatures of Shiverburn Galaxy???
« on: June 11, 2010, 05:40:24 PM »
Why I am posting this, I don't know. But its kind of creepy. :P This is from GoNintendo :



Reader Kevin sent in a very interesting tip about Super Mario Galaxy 2. He told me of some mysterious figures that he saw while visiting Shiverburn Galaxy in Super Mario Galaxy 2. Unfortunately, he didn't have any pics to show off his findings. No worries though, as I got my camera and snapped some pics of my own.

Finding these 'figures' is really easy. Just go to Shiverburn Galaxy, turn to your left and go into first-person camera mode. Then, look up to the top of the cliffs above you, and you'll see...



Those are the best pics I could get, and I really don't think doing direct-feed would give any better visuals. As far as I can tell, there's nothing else around the entire valley that looks like this. I don't know what you guys see, but I see two sort-of human-like figures on the left, and some undetermined shape on the right.

Also, I don't believe you could ever actually reach those figures for a closer look. I think they're part of the game's drawn background, which will never actually get any closer to you, no matter how far out your travel. Hop in the game and check it out for yourself. I hope I'm wrong!


Leave a comment, as I'd love to hear what your opinion on this is!

UPDATE - Now things get even weirder! This new image comes from reader Girrrtacos, who did some mighty-fine detective work to take us one step further. I'll let him explain the situation in his own works.

This is what I've found by hacking. It is in the sky model, and it's called "BeyondHellValleySky". The texture for those creepy things (seen in the bottom left) is called "HellValleySkyTree". Maybe they're weird lookin' trees?


Well...now I'm really freaked out...

Hell Valley Galaxy was a beta version of an unused galaxy.

Don't know why it was incorporated in Shiverburn, though.

Meh, it's not very creepy. The only thing I find creepy is that the file is called "Beyond Hell Valley". But if it's just a unused galaxy, then that's different. =P

Wow never saw this before. Now that's pretty creepy. Going to probably start all these rumors maybe.

I saw it. It's creepy really because every planet you see there is a glimpse of those freaky creatures. It's just so... DISTURBING!!!

That's pretty cool. I love to find betas in games because they're so cool. I wish they would complete the stuff they started on, (ex: Fungus Forest in BK) though. Anyway, that's pretty cool.

Yeah, I noticed them. I don't know why they were there, it was most likely in beta and may have forgotten to take it out in the final product.

Or it may be possible that these were a preview of a new game or object that we do not yet know.

Thank you, Real Hammer Bro! ;)

Hmmm...........scary! I might try to look for them. Is it at the start where you look to the left? It seems interesting.

I think it can be seen from anywhere in Shiverburn. It's part of the background.

No matter where you are in Shiverburn the creatures will be there when you look left. They're actually appear in galaxies with these backgrounds.

I haven't seen them but they look very interesting. I'll give Shiverburn a second look when I have free time.

I found them before you answered the question Vip anyway! ;) I also saw them in Grandmaster. I don't know why.

Sheesh... I found them, but they creeped me out a bit. They can be seen following you if you look at them often enough.
