Developing a video game is a massive effort, and of course there are sometimes little mistakes and omissions along the way. This was the case in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door when it originally saw release on the GameCube in 2004. Luckily, Nintendo has taken the opportunity to fix one of those errors in the new Switch version.

In this case, the omission was a piece of dialogue that should’ve been accessible via Goombella’s Tattle ability. Normally, you can use Tattle in a location or next to a character to have Goombella give you some brief info about them. However, there was one area in the original game where this didn’t work: When using Tattle on Doopliss’s parrot in Chapter 4, the room’s message would be repeated instead of getting one for the parrot itself. Players only knew that a parrot message existed because it was discovered in the game’s data.

Fortunately, the new remake of The Thousand-Year Door has restored this data! Now players can learn about that parrot to their heart’s content. You can see this change for yourself via the video above.
