Super Nintendo games have finally arrived on the Nintendo Switch via its Online service, so you can relive those glory days or introduce younger generations to the classics. You probably want to relive those memories as faithfully as possible; but for at least one game, it looks like the port was so faithful, it even retains a cool, lesser known secret from its original version.
Yoshi's Island, as it so happens, has a secret two-player mode that you can unlock using a code on the level select screen. While this doesn't let you play the actual game as a multiplayer co-op experience, you can compete against each other in multiplayer minigames like Throw and Seed Spit, as noticed by a user on the Nintendo Switch subreddit.
This secret was in the original Yoshi's Island on the SNES, as well as the SNES Classic when it came out last year. By holding down the Minus button and pressing X, X, Y, B, A, you can access the menu and fight your friends to your heart's content.
It's neat that after all these years, little things like this still carry forward. Some folks might not even have noticed it, even though there's an in-game hint telling you how to access the menu, so the idea of uncovering a new mode in game you love years later is pretty fun. While Yoshi's Island isn't the rarest game on the list of those already in the SNES Online lineup, at least now you know you can boot it up for some seed spittin' fun at your next get-together.
