Interesting things found in ROMS


Recommended Posts

I've noticed that all of the NHL games have some art and code assets left over from previous games in the series, [using the previous year's Playoffs logo, having unused Ron Barr Hot/Cold commentary in non-Ron games, build note comments, etc.] but this one was a surprise.

Took me a bit to realize what I was looking at, but getting near the end of the ROM data, it appears that while THQ was compiling the Genesis version of NHL 98 they pulled in some Madden assets.

And just below that.

Almost as interesting, [at least it's the same sport] but the entire title graphic from NHL 97 was left intact.

Not the most egregious thing I've heard of getting compiled into a ROM, but it's fun coming across this stuff nonetheless.
