Satoru Iwata

The game was originally programmed by Satoru Iwata, who would later go on to become the president of Nintendo. In September 2017, 2 years after his death on 11th July 2015, a playable version of this game was found hidden in the Nintendo Switch firmware, and could be activated by setting the system clock to 11th July and re-enacting Iwata's "directly to you" gesture with the Switch Joy-Cons. However, this was found to be removed in December 2017, and the game would go on to be officially released as a paid game on the Nintendo eShop on October 25th 2019.
