Gamer Finds Hidden Message in Metroid Prime 3


Nintendo is sneaky, but it’s more silly than anything else. This is no “hot coffee.”

According to, a gamer has found a hidden audio clip from what some have recognized as Nintendo’s Satoru Iwata. It’s spoken in Japanese, but when translated is understood as the following:

“Hello, this is Iwata from Nintendo. You may not know from an outsider’s point of view, but being a director is really hard! When things are really busy and stressful we (us directors) may look tired and sick, then people may feel sorry for us! But in my case, it’s the opposite, I get fatter and fatter, so then people don’t think I’m stressed at all!”

So, Iwata has a little issue with weight? We’ll have to see what Nintendo’s “official stance” is on the clip.

That’s so ridiculous…I can’t help think it’s absolutely true. Funny, mind you.

Wow, that’s so stupid lol.

I’m just surprised people find this stuff randomly, if it’s true.

But I don’t think it is because 1) No Audio clip has been posted, nor a video, 2) No guide as to where to find it, and 3) The person remains nameless.

If it IS true though, I’d really have a good laugh at that.

Ah this is no secret. I have the game and i’ve heard this. If you enter the same code you were asked to use to verify your ship in the beginning of the game this message plays. I think there is another one though…

I was messing around the other day and input a bunch of codes and all I got was static and random “alien” transmissions. One of them sounded alot like the spybot in Empire Strikes Back.
