According to Twitter user ujiidow, Nintendo did a big goof: it seems like they accidentally used uJidow’s unofficial rendition of Mario instead of a real one on the Super Nintendo World website that went live yesterday. What is this, Among us?
Here are the two pictures, for reference, with unofficially one to the left, and the genuine one to the right:
… Yes, it’s hard to say, right. After all, they look like Mario.
Here’s ujiidow’s capture of the site and what it looks like now:
(Update: the image is actually still there – it is used as a loading icon on the site. This is what it looks like 🙂
Further investigation has revealed the fact that the producer of the deceiver Mario also goes in the handle coolest_luigi on Reddit, where they first posted the picture. How very suspicious. We are not saying that this is the classic plot “younger brother gets jealous, sabotages siblings”, but we are not not says that.
Of course, this is not the first time Mario looks like anyone else, is it? We have all played Super Mario Sunshine, and we all know how it played out.
