Its possible. But VERY hard to unlock. You have to do a triple backflip onto the corner wall outside the castle near the front bridge and then do a walljump off the mountain lion and slam down into the ground and you will fall through the ground (its a glitch) and then you will end up on top of the castle. Once on top of the castle, you need to jump onto the highest point on the castle and slam down and you will hear a loud "click". Reset your game cart and make a new game and you will start off as Luigi.


Sounds like it's true......

Where did you read it though?

It sounds like someone could easily make it up, and games dont have "glitches" like this. Anything that unlocks something is usually there on purpose :) (At any rate, id check to see if its real first, otherwise you could waste alot of time on this. XD )

Yep, I don't believe on that because at least IGN has asked a way to unlock Luigi, and so far the only possible way to get Luigi is change Mario's color to green with GameShark. <a href='http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Mario_64#Rumors' target='_blank'>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Mario_64#Rumors</a>

I read it on the forums where I found the article, which the article was posted on April Fools, so I asked if it was true, and that's what I got. Trust me there are glitches in the game, like going into the room of darknessk, so falling through the floor by doing certain things might be correct

Its your time, so its up to you if you want to try, but I dont think its true. At any rate, I would want someone on a bigger site to clarify first (Like IGN which Nindra pointed out).

At any rate, being able to play as another character in a game isnt a glitch. Its an easter egg :) (Ie. An unlockable that the developers deliberately put in.)

Tried it on the DS and N64 version. IT DOES NOT WORK. Just like every other way to unlock him. Id like to quote Shigsy on this one.

I've herd about this so-called "glitch" before, and no, it doesn't work. There was a lot of talk about this when the game first came out, but it doesn't work. There is something about getting Yoshi tho =]]

Get all of the stars in the game. The cannon outside the castle opens, shoot yourself onto the roof. Yoshi is sitting there, talk to him for 99 lives, you can also jump up the outside wall with some game glitches. He is not playable.
