Hi, I'm a big fan of this game, as are a lot of people, so it came to me as a great surprise when I found out an Easter egg had just recently been discovered in the game. What you have to do is press R 39 times while holding the L and A buttons, then press R while pressing no other buttons. It apparently can only be done when the characters' weapons are out. What happens is the letters "NAS" appear on the characters' weapon gauges. I don't believe it has any effect other than this. It seems pretty certain that the significance of "NAS" is that they are the first three letters of the name of the game's lead programmer, the enigmatic Nasir Gebelli (who often goes by just "Nasir", as shown in the game's intro).

By the way, you can thank HHS from TASVideos for discovering this (along with many other very interesting findings), I just wanted to post it here because I felt more people should know about it, and I don't believe its been posted here yet.
Valhalla!

I'm a skeptical man, but I'll fire up my ZSnes and see what comes up. It might make a good motif during fights, who knows?

Wow, turns out it works. Pretty nifty, though I wish it would stay in combat or something. Pretty cool that something new was found on an older game such as this
Secret of Mana-Solo Purim Run: Lv17, stalled at Demon Wall.

I'm going to have to fire up the SNES and see if this works.

I really don't feel like making a video with my rom on zsnes, but here's a screenshot of the egg in action. The letters appear for about a second, then leave.

Weird.... now how did someone find out something random as this? I mean who presses R 39 times while holding A and L? <_<

I always want to ask that question, but at the same time, I never really want it answered...
