This week saw the launch of Star Wars Episode I: Racer on Nintendo Switch, bringing the N64 classic back for a new, modern spin. It includes all the features from the original like the racers and tracks, but that’s not all it’s kept from the original release.
Reddit user Kokiri_Emerald has shared footage of an interesting glitch that was first discovered in the N64 version, and is still available to perform in the new edition on Switch. It allows the player to see an area that was never meant to be seen, which will be particularly exciting for those who put hours and hours into the original back in the day.
If you have a copy of the game and want to give it a go yourself, Kokiri_Emerald has explained the whole process:
“It is on the stage Executioner. You go through several anti-gravity tunnels in the track. When exiting the first tunnel, you’ll be faced with a concrete tunnel. Don’t go through it. Instead, crash into the right corner of the fence and you should glitch through. I have also ramped over the top before.
This area that looks like the track in this video is in fact not the track at all. The track you would normally follow is on the other side of the large wall to the left. You were never meant to see this area of the game.”
If you haven’t already, make sure to check out the game’s launch trailer for more excitement, and keep an eye out for our full review in the coming days.
