Gone Home on Switch Has a Very Cool SNES Easter Egg

I think we're alone now.

Gone Home is on the Switch now, and eagle-eyed players seem to have discovered a new easter egg exclusive to the Nintendo Switch version of the game.

Seeing as Gone Home is set in the 90s and stars a teenage girl who loves punk rock and Street Fighter, it wouldn't be too surprising to find a couple of SNES cartridges lying around the living room. And that's just what you'll find if you play Gone Home on the Switch.

On Twitter one user posted a screenshot of a Super Mario Kart SNES cartridge in Gone Home and asked if this is the first time the cartridge made it in the game. Gone Home developer Steve Gaynor confirmed that this is indeed the case and that Nintendo of America gave Fullbright permission to include this new easter egg in the Switch version of Gone Home.

Unfortunately, you can't plug these cartridges into a nearby SNES and play a virtual version of Mario Kart, but it's a cool addition nonetheless. Gone Home is available now on the Nintendo Switch. You can read our retrospective on Gone Home's significance here.
