Sphere walking?[edit]

What is that "sphere walking" the article is talking about? I have played Zelda: Twilight Princess, and have no idea what that is referring to. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 16:04, 11 August 2007 (EDT)

I think the writer means when Link wears the Iron Boots and he can walk on magnetic ceilings/walls. Though it is a pretty far guess since sphere walking actually started with Metroid Prime.Knife (talk) 16:16, 11 August 2007 (EDT)

That's quite far-fetched indeed, and I doubt it's based on Super Mario 128. About Super Mario Galaxy, someone else has to judge. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 16:22, 11 August 2007 (EDT)

Son of Suns, please explain why it's up there again. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 13:24, 12 September 2007 (EDT)
Sphere-walking refers to the ability in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess to walk on magnetic walls and ceilings using the Iron Boots. It is exactly the same as Super Mario 128. -- Son of Suns
What about Knife's comment about it being in Metroid Prime? I don't know, haven't played that game. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 13:28, 12 September 2007 (EDT)
I have and I don't know exactly what he is talking about. I think a lot of Super Mario 128 ended up in Metroid Prime, but I don't recall any sphere-walking. -- Son of Suns
When you get the magnetic ball upgrade, you can stick to ceilings and such.Knife (talk) 21:56, 9 December 2007 (EST)

In Galaxy, the article means how some planets have gravity where you can walk upside down on, such as the Geo Planet and Yoshi Egg Planet, as opposed to the ones with gravity that make you fall off the edge of the planet if you go too far. (Those planets obviously need Christopher Colombus to fix the gravity) An example of these planets are the Honeyhive Planet and the Magma Planet.

Has it been officially stated that the magnetic Iron Boots mechanic was based on SM128's sphere walking, or it's just an assumption? Ericss (talk) 20:37, 24 February 2015 (EST)

The Iwata Asks for Super Mario Galaxy states Yoshiaki Koizumi wanted the sphere walking part of SM128 to be something implemented in a full game, and little by little, the prototype they created for that became Galaxy (cliffs notes). didn't notice this was about zelda, nvm. --Glowsquid (talk) 21:34, 24 February 2015 (EST)


The dark mario clones on Super Mario Galaxy 2 seem related to super mario 128! Mariodancingonblock.gifGamer2.1Hyperluigi.gif

The Gamecube is NOT 128-bit[edit]

Look, the only game system with 128-bit ANYTHING is the Playstation 2, which has a 128-bit text system(in other words, merely a way to make it seem cooler than the others) , the Game Cube has a 64 bit processor. Look it up.

...It HAS 128 bits these dates are in the Wiki, information pages and it's official ._.--Mateo (Talk · Contributions) 08:49, 28 December 2009 (EST)

It's called Nintendo making BS up. Ericss (talk) 19:21, 24 February 2015 (EST)
