Gamers knew this morning that they were going to get a ton of Mario. Specifically, Super Mario Odyssey.
What they didn’t know they were getting: nipples. Mario nipples.
As the Nintendo Direct continued to play out, it was the image of the iconic plumber, shirtless on the beach that captured everyone’s attention.
Of course, everyone fixated on the nipples.

do u think mario's nipple textures are as hi-res as his pores and mustache— OLI BÄR (@OliverMatroskin) September 13, 2017
The beach photo also raised questions as to whether still officially has a tattoo, one of the last times Mario showed some skin:
You mean It's not canon anymore ??!? pic.twitter.com/2hO1nrKBEa— ♄ (@HalviI) September 13, 2017
But for the most part, it was Mario‘s tiny areolas that stole the show.

Nintendo has been weird in 2017. Awesome, for sure, but weird.
