Some people have told me that this could be a debugging code for displaying error messages, I will investigate a little more and then I show the results

This might seem stupid but I want to see if this code is also present in the SNES version since it's written in C. That sounds very convienient for the programmers and seems quite plausible. I don't really know what I'm talking about but it would be incredibly cool if true.

Well, from what I saw there is no uncompiled source code in the snes rom of this game.

I was just theorizing and I didn't really read your post right. Sorry 'bout that.
But on the other hand, maybe it was actually compiled in that version. It does seem like the SNES was the lead platform for that game.
