Super Mario has been saving the Mushroom Kingdom (and various others) for over 30 years now and with yesterdays Nintendo Direct came some new Super Mario Odyssey footage. Cue shirtless Mario.
Nintendo fans are losing their S*[email protected] over shirtless Mario…and with good reason! We all know he’s Nintendo’s italian mascot but Twitter has been filled with memes and funny images featuring Mario in the buff.
It’s not often he is featured shirtless in any Super Mario games but it’s the inclusion of his nipples that seem to be stealing the spotlight. Check out some interesting tweets below!

Upon further inspection, Mario has been shirtless before…but DIDN’T HAVE NIPPLES. He GREW nipples for Odyssey. Story of the CENTURY. pic.twitter.com/V0luiEUYxC

I have to admit I was slightly taken aback for a second when I saw him parading around on the beach in just his shorts, if only for a brief few seconds! I thought “well this is new…”.
Aside from that the introduction to a couple of new worlds in Super Mario Odyssey was a welcome sight, they looked beautiful, especially the tropical paradise one. I can’t help but feel October is going to be a terrible month for my wallet!
